Nvidia driver doesnt install on amd64 using kernel 2.6.15-git2 and git4.
Diff file for nvidia driver available from url
To quote the ebuild, this kernel is not supported by Gentoo due to its unstable and experimental nature. If you have any issues, try a matching vanilla-sources
ebuild -- if the problem is not there, please contact the upstream kernel
developers at http://bugme.osdl.org and on the linux-kernel mailing list to
report the problem so it can be fixed in time for the next kernel release.
well using vanilla-sources and gentoo-sources the kernel wont even boot for me. It doesnt find /dev/* stuff. git works fine apart from this bug
The nvidia sure isn't supported by upstream, but I did see in a nvidia
forum somewhere where they had a patch that fixed things to work properly
with this driver (it was linked off of a post on the linux-kernel mailing
So again, this is a upstream issue, not a gentoo-kernel issue, please
do not add bugs to this database for this kernel tree.
