1 Hi,
3 previously I had emerged nvidia-settings seperately. This leads to an
4 problem with a recent update, because the nvidia-settings were
5 pulling in the old version of the nvidia-drivers and the update wants
6 the new version of the drivers.
8 So I emerge -C'ed the nvidia-settings, set the USE-flag 'tools' for
9 the drivers and works.
11 This morning ... updateing my Gentoo box again, the same scenario
12 happens again...nvidia-settings (old version) were missing (why?)
13 and again wants the old driver while emerge wants the new one.
15 How can I get out of this?
17 Best regards,
18 Meino
