Description Jens Ott 2013-07-18 12:54:41 UTC
The current ebuild nvidia-drivers (x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-325.08) is not building against 3.6.10.X kernel. I found a patch under which makes it working properly and created an ebuild using this patch on 3.6.10 kernels.

This ebuild auto-patches if kernel is >= 3.6.10

(Quoting Doug Goldstein from bug #447566 comment #56)
> It is and has always been Gentoo's policy to support what NVIDIA supports. The current versions of the drivers do not support 3.10. You are more than welcome to use the capabilities of epatch_user (which are present in all the ebuilds) to make the changes yourself but they do not go into the main tree.
