Description Ștefan Talpalaru 2015-10-21 20:46:27 UTC
Renaming the 355.11-r2 ebuild and changing the nvidia-drivers dependency slot does the trick.

Reproducible: Always

nvidia-settings-361.18 is now available, and it depends on x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers:0/361

And another newer version:

Personally, I don't see the point in the version bump.  We are already moving in the direction of dropping nvidia-settings as a standalone package #562910, so bumping a package that is effectively on its way out seems like a waste of effort.  Just my 2 cents.

Comment 6 Freddie Witherden 2016-05-09 13:13:29 UTC
The main reason at the moment for keeping nvidia-settings around as a standalone package is that it always installs libXNVCtrl.a whereas nvidia-drivers will only install libXNVCtrl.a if USE="static-libs".

Several packages, including sci-libs/vtk, depend on libXNVCtrl.a and only permit it to be provided through nvidia-settings.  Hence, when nvidia-settings is not bumped one gets into a sticky situation with regards to unresolved dependencies.

Please use x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers[tools] instead.
