So, I am having trouble getting nvidia drivers working, it keeps saying unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy. So, I wanted to DL the latest kernel and try it. So I did, I also heard you could do make mrproper and it helps. So I did that. Did make menuconfig, imported my config. Make dep, make bzImage. And I get all kinds of errors. So I try to do it again, this time I do make menuconfig, and there are no options. Its blank.

1) Will getting the new kernel help the nvidia problem?

2) Why wont the kernel compile?

1) Not necessarily, but I can't really judge on limited information.

2) Perhaps you checked already, but make sure /usr/src/linux is symlinked to your actual latest kernel directory. E.g. on my machine I would do:

Code:
cd /usr/src
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s linux-2.4.19-gentoo-r4 linux


... just to make sure (change the directory as appropriate). Then go into /usr/src/linux and make mrproper again before proceeding. Try doing a make clean after your make dep.

Last time I had any kernel/nvidia problems I did an "emerge clean" then unmerged the kernel and the nvidia drivers. Then I blitzed any linux kernel directory trees under /usr/src with rm -rf and emerged again. Then things were fine. You could also try re-emerging the linux kernel headers.
