Re: Emerging archived drivers from nVidia. . .

Sorry, folks! I wasn't expressing myself clearly - I emerged eix as instructed. I then downloaded the *pkg2.run and I will compile it tomorrow.

Re: Emerging archived drivers from nVidia. . .

Thanks-a-bunch, both of you!

Emerging archived drivers from nVidia [Solved]

Please - I am going to need the 1.0-7185 driver for my Geforce 4 Go 440 card, I can just download it, but I would prefer using Portage:

emerge -s nvidia-drivers

doesn't list this version, is there an alternative key-word?

If I do the 'Core' Install. . .
