Description jaynus 2019-07-18 18:59:44 UTC
nvidia RTX drivers added two new .so files which are needed for actually using the new raytracing extensions (VK_NV_ray_tracing and family).

These are documented in the NVIDIA_Changelog file as:

    * Implemented support for Vulkan real-time ray tracing extensions
      (VK_NV_raytracing). Two new libraries, libnvidia-rtcore.so and
      libnvidia-cbl.so, have been added to support the new functionality.
      These new libraries are needed by Vulkan at run-time to expose the
      new extension. If they are not found, Vulkan will continue to work
      without VK_NV_raytracing support.

Which means the ebuild must include:
- libnvidia-rtcore.so
- libnvidia-cbl.so

Which are not currently included in the installation.

The latest 435.21 ebuild added rtcore/cbl/optix correctly. HOWEVER, this is gated behind "has_multilib_profile", which is not a requirement. This has_multilib_profile check should be removed.
