I'm trying to install the nVidia drivers (version 319.17), but the emerge fails with the following error:

Connecting to download.nvidia.com.. |199.2.204.150|:21.. connected.
Logging in as anonymous
Login incorrect


So it seems nVidia is not allowing anonymous downloads from their ftp site.

Anybody got any ideas to resolve this?

TIA!

I was able to download the file manually from the nVidia web site, after accepting the license terms.

I placed the file in the /usr/portage/distfiles/ directory, and emerge no longer tried to download the file.

Hi Vorlon.

I guess your fetch restriction is because you haven't accept nvidia's licence.
From my experience there was always a hint into portages out put to inform you about this.

For the future you could solve this by adding
Code:
ACCEPT_LICENSE="*"
to your make.conf, if you're willing to accept all licences, but you could differentiate it also to special licences if you want.

Its mentioned here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml?part=2&chap=1#doc_chap4

Regard, Andy.
