nvidia drivers for 2.6.26 kernel

Post by dead » Wed Sep 03, 2008 21:06

Hi, after updating to 2.6.26 kernel, I had a command line prompt instead of GUI.
I changed "nvidia" with "nv" in xorg.conf, and now I have a X-window without 3D acceleration.

Following the wiki I had the following output to the emerge nvidia-drivers

Code: Select all

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-173.14.05-r10 (masked by: corruption)
