this is what i get...
3.4 x86-64 mini
i wonder why it wants to downgrade my nvivia-driver.
oh, i don't know if it matters but i did not update xorg, xorg-server, python or any other stuff that can cause major problems to my system.
think i should wait untill i am more experienced with portage and sabayon.
just asked portage for the driver cause i read some stuff in irc and was interested.
1. is it save to emerge, no ideas about the kernel-sources? i know i have to deal with it some time.
2. as i said, why downgrade?
would be nice if someone could answer this noobish questions.
