Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:58:42 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit-4.2, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * If you want to natively run the code generated by this version of the
 * CUDA toolkit, you will need >=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-260.19.21.
 * Run '. /etc/profile' before using the CUDA toolkit. 

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install.
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if ! has_version 'dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit'; then

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
