"Audaces fortuna iuvat"... Yes, but learn else before start Gentoo stuff... ...and few words more for explaining the problem: The kernel should have loaded video modules before "startx". These come from drivers... If you have installed "nouveau" drivers, the modules from "nvidia-drivers" are blocked...

Check your kernel and drivers version compatibility... Install and run "rigo" and check... You have probably kernel "linux-sabayon-4.15.10".....

Re: Nvidia problem [Solved]

Hi,jaguar... i have no idea what is exactly your problem... and about "peculiarities" of your laptop. Is it the Optimus architecture? There are TWO graphic cards, built-in Intel GPU and Nvidia GPU (PCI16)... These cards are working differently and with different drivers. Have you installed all requi...
