Description Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2020-01-12 11:26:52 UTC
media-gfx/nvidia-cg-toolkit uses lexicographical string version compare:

media-gfx/nvidia-cg-toolkit/nvidia-cg-toolkit-3.1.0013-r5.ebuild:	if [[ ${REPLACING_VERSIONS} < 2.1.0016 ]]; then

The intention is likely to use 'ver_cmp'. See bug #705240 for hints to fix it.
