I thought Nvidia generally had better linux support than ATI, in fact I was going to boycot ATI on all future purchases for this reason...

Might want to hold out on that a bit, AMD is considering open sourcing former-ATI graphics drivers, at least a large part.

We can dream, right?

they either open source it or risk losing business, they can't afford not to, they wanna take on Intel, they have to take every edge they can and this is one of them. I'm making all future hardware purchase decisions on the support for linux and open-source-ness.. I'd encourage everybody else to do the same so that they have incentive to follow our demands...

Well, ATI has just said they're not open sourcing their drivers. Whether that changes after AMD finishes buying them out or not is yet to be seen.

Read my post - see https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-3508905.html#3508905 Everything is workable on AMD64, only latest ati driver in package.mask, nothing else.

Your genius only comes through when you do blatant childish personal attacks.

I'd appreciate it if you only address things I actually say, rather than resorting to this. At least try.

I wasn't trying to come off so as mean as it did. I probably was in a bad mood that night.

edit: I was more ore less annoyed that he complained about the issue without wanting to do something about it and giving no reason (though that's why I asked him what his reason was, but even then I wrote it too "aggressively").

It doesn't say they want to open source "a large part." It says a "functional subset." As has been pointed out, this would likely be the equivalent of nvidia and the nv driver.

Still sounds like a good move on their part.

I never asked him "Why do you refuse to put 200+ packages in package.keywords without a version number." Furthermore, I have no idea what this has to do with anything, considering you only need to unmask a handful of packages to get xorg-7.1.


When I installed xorg-7 I added the following list
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/modular-x-packages.txt
296 packages in total.
How many is needed for 7.1 nowdays I dont know.

When you get the ABI modules mismatch (when trying to run X) you just add the tag ignoreABI

you can run the newest nvidia drivers on xorg 7.1 just do this:

Code:
startx -- -ignoreABI


for those of you wanting to do xlg/compiz stuff, you can make a startxgl based off of the gentoo-wiki info. Here's a link: http://gentoo-wiki.com/XGL

Just for those of you who need extra help (like me) here's what I emerged...

Code:
emerge -C xorg-server
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64" emerge nvidia-drivers
startx -- -ignoreABI


just a note- nvidia-drivers is masked (i think) so use your architecture to unmask. if you are unsure of your arch, use ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86"

Hope this helps people!

Don't use ACCEPT_KEYWORDS like that on the command line. /etc/portage/package.keywords is meant for it. If you use it on the command line, it will be valid for this one particular emerge, but will fallback to arch (not ~arch) on any future update (unless you write ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=... for every future 'emerge world' etc.). Read the Portage sections of the manual for more info.

Guess I was lucky. I never bothered with that list. When I unmasked xorg-7 originally, I just unmasked individual packages one at a time. And since I had VIDEO_CARDS and INPUT_DEVICES set in make.conf I was able to avoid unmasking a lot.

In any case, since xorg-7 is in stable, you can remove all of those from that list and you'll revert to having xorg-7.

Then, if you want xorg-7.1 you should add "=x11-base/xorg-7.1 ~x86" to the package.keywords then unmask each package it asks for that are still masked.

Finally, Nvidia released new drivers 1.0-8774 with these release highlights:
Code:
* Added support for X.Org 7.1.
 
 * Added support for XVideo with the Composite X extension
 when using X.Org 7.1.
 
 * Improved interaction with newer Linux kernels

:) :D :lol:

Thanks for the heads up Radfoj.... Ive been living with these font issues for over a month in hopes that an nvidia driver update was not far behind but of course that was not the case this time :(

I just saw it on Linuxgames a second ago and raced here to share the news. Guess I'm pokey.

Now to unmask and emerge.

See https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145004
Even if Nvidia say their new driver works with Xorg 7.1 ist must just be tested before the ebuilds can be modified. I hope we will have the necessary ebuilds soon.

How do I ignore the block and install nvidia-drivers? I have done it before but I forgot. :oops:

Also, can anyone confirm (someone where the drivers did not work before) that these new drivers work with xorg7.1? I can't be the one because they have always worked for me even though they shouldn't.

Yes I'm on a amd64 (very ~amd64) and have gotten xorg 7.1 and the new nvidia drivers to work properly. You just need to modify the xorg-server and nvidia-driver ebuilds, there are 3 lines in the xorg-server under the RDEPEND section that block glx,kernel, and drivers, remove these (don't forget to keep that closing quotation mark!!!!). In the nvidia ebuild just remove the line !>=x11-base/xorg-server-<some version number>. Emerge and rejoice.

Currently running with the 7.1.1 Xorg, 8774 drivers, and xorg-server version 1.1.1
