Didn't work for me either. I didn't rebuild the kernel, but short of that it didn't work for me either. Probably just back up a kernel version. I guess I don't have to be on the bleeding edge. I just want to play trackballs.

:( :(

I used the command
Quote:
sh /usr/portage/distfiles/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

This runs nVidia's install program and will download the needed files.

Got this from a post in the German forum, even though I can't read German :roll:.

Ok well I removed the mtrr from my boot line and I still get the same mtrr error, though I don't think it is related at all. I was able to get the issue resolved with the 1.0-5341 drivers from nVidia (courtesy of the pny web page.) The new installation of the drivers just works.
