Hi
I started using Gentoo recently ant there's one thing I can't get working - nvidia proprietary drivers. When I emerge it, it fails and gives me some "info" about errors (info, that I don't understand at all).

There's full emerge output: http://bpaste.net/show/144197/
Note: I use pf-sources, but it's not its fault, because I also tried emerging nvidia-drivers on gentoo kernel and got the same.

Any idea?

Current nVidia drivers do not build against kernel 3-11.

In kernel/nv-linux.h change

Code:
959 #define NV_NUM_PHYSPAGES                num_physpages

to

Code:
959 #define NV_NUM_PHYSPAGES                get_num_physpages


either using a patch or by hand.

You are welcome! Although the question wasn't stupid. Your only mistake was the failure to read the warning about unsupported kernels.

That's horribly horribly wrong!
1st, get_num_physpages is a function, not a variable. What you're doing here
is assigning the address of this function, not the value it should hold.

2nd, num_physpages was renamed to totalram_pages, use this one instead.
