If I have an old Nvidia 6600 graphics card.
On installing the driver it says
You are currently installing a version of nvidia-drivers that is
* known not to work with a video card you have installed on your
* Add the following mask entry to /etc/portage/package.mask by
* echo ">=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-305.0.0" >> /etc/portage/package.mask
Obviously I would use sudo equo mask ">=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-305.0.0"
As we know, some packages such as x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers are specific to kernel version.
My question is this, once old hardware is no longer supported by driver upgrades, does this mean kernel upgrades are impossible? In the case above - I can not use a kernel above 3.5.0-sabayon?
