Dear all,

I just wanted to install nvidia-drivers-295.75. However, unpacking the file fails:

Quote:

ERROR: x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.75 failed (unpack phase):
* failure unpacking (gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Aug 24 22:25:03 2012, max compression) makeself NVIDIA-Linux-x86-295.75.run ('1.6.0-nv' +906)


This actually does not surprise me to much, since the file downloaded by portage has around 4MB while the official driver at the nvidia homepage has around 30 MB. What should I do now?

delete the file in distfiles, emerge -f nvidia-drivers

if for some reason it kept failing (even i think the file is get directly from nvidia and not from a mirror), you can always download it yourself from nvidia and put it in your distfiles directory.

The problem is that portage wants to get the 4 MB file, i.e., even having the file from the nvidia website does not help.

You mean this one ? ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/295.75/

When I run emerge -uDNvaf nvidia-drivers, I get

Quote:

[ebuild U ~] x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.75 [295.71] USE="acpi tools (-multilib)" 4,661 kB


Running this, indeed a 4 MB file is downloaded:

which gives the error mentioned in my first post.

As the ebuild doesn't complain for the size, the digest was made with that "truncate" file.

So the dev use a bad file and add it thinking it was good, or use a special version of the file lower than the original from nvidia.

I'm not sure if anyone would take time to strip filesize for a driver, even it could save bandwith or disk space.

Must be a bug.

What you could try is :
download the file from nvidia with the link i provide, put it in your distfiles and
Code:
ebuild /usr/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-driver/nvidia-drivers-295.75.ebuild digest

When I do this, during the digestion, again the 4 MB file is downloaded:

redo with --skip-manifest after restoring the nvidia file.
Code:
ebuild /usr/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-driver/nvidia-drivers-295.75.ebuild digest --skip-manifest


It's just to help you, you can still ignore it and wait for update or mask it
