Description Peter Hyman 2005-12-06 17:40:20 UTC
X configurator from nvidia. Part of the new nvidia package 1.0.8174. Command
line utility. No doc other than a manpage. Maintainers may wish to make sure I
used tc-getCC properly for platform independence. Works for me on x86.

Hmm, shouldn't this be rather installed via nvidia-glx ebuild?
Comment 3 Peter Hyman 2005-12-06 18:06:59 UTC
That would be convenient! But, the source is not included in the file.
It's separate just like nvidia-settings is. Strange, but that's the way they
made it :( We'll see how the maintainers want to handle this...if at all.

for some reason, I forgot to set ${S} and ebuild did not compile. Don't know
how I missed that :) I don't like the fact that there is no Documentation other
than the manpage. Perhaps a README should be created to say that "no
documentation is provided, please see manpage?" LOL

For me this bug shows itself as the nvidia make (the ebuild is fine) failing to identify my kernel with the message :-
1.0-8178-pkg1/usr/src/nv ...
 * Preparing nvidia module
If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

*** Unable to determine the target kernel version. ***

A cd to /var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.8178/work/NVIDIA-Linu x-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1/usr/src/nv and running 
make install
builds and installs it. Then of course nvidia-glx won't build, so you have to add media-video/nvidia-kernel-1.0.8178 to  /etc/make.profile/package.provided
which is really a dirty hack but I don't know enough about ebuilds to fix the ebuild - yet.

4 months no action. I'm not a dev, so can't fix.
