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


hallo,

everything worked 8)

Hi,
This happens due to the fact that the file you alter no longer matches the hashes in Manifest so we need to rebuild it.. to do this run the follow:
Code:
ebuild <<patch to ebuild>.ebuild digest
E.g. ebuild /usr/portage/x11-base/xorg-server/xorg-server-1.1.1.ebuild digest


Good Luck

I removed blocks in related ebuilds and everything works great. The only thing I am worrying now, what this means:
Code:
# grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(EE) Error loading keymap /usr/share/X11/xkb/compiled/server-0.xkm

Directory /usr/share/X11/xkb/compiled/ contains only README, locate for server-0.xkm doesnt find anything.

@radfoj
Just check on my system and I've only got a Readme file there as well but no errors either.

I also don't have such a file either, but also no error - something in your Xorg.conf?

The new nvidia drivers work great in Xorg 7.1 for me. Hopefully this will get officially unblocked soon.

FWIW I did the following when updating to xorg-server 7.1:

emerge --unmerge xkbdata
rm -Rvf /usr/lib/X11/xkb
rm -Rvf /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
(I tried previously emerge-xkeyboard-config but it told me explicitely to do this first)
emerge xkeyboard-config

(rc-update then added a bunch of new xkb-related files...)

Then everything worked with these settings:
Quote:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "evdev"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "evdev"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event0"
EndSection

Your milage may vary, but it got rid of weird xkb errors.

w00t! This problem has also solved my issue. I am currently running :

Thanks for the info dolcraith.

Now that nvidia binary drivers with Xorg 7.1 support are out, what is the hold-up on getting Xorg7.1 unmasked?

Testing to make sure it really works.

Also, the binary drivers are new and therefore in the testing branch. If we made xorg-7.1 labelled "stable" then anyone who had VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia" has xorg-7.1 depend on the ~x86 nvidia driver. Gentoo devs usually don't like having something marked stable and depend on something marked unstable.

Thanks for the insight. I'm just a little eager to see thing progress. Once AIGLX || Xgl is widespread I think it will really demostrate on a large scale how effective the open source community can be at developing software that surpasses proprietary software both in features and reliability. I'd really like to see XGL or AIGLX become a standard on the Linux desktop, rivaliing the crap that M$ is going to release in their bloated, ineffective "upgrade" to Windows XP.

trying to install the nvidia-drivers package on a 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 system, tried

putting the line x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers ~x86 into /etc/portage/package.keywords
and attemping a emerge x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers as suggested in this thread.


results in an error message about no ebuilds to satisfy "x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers"

Have I missed something very obvious :?

Do you have a portage tree installed? If yes, have you synced recently? If not, you'll need to as nvidia-drivers didn't used to exist as it's own package.

Also, check the contents for /etc/portage/package.keywords for that line and see if you happened to do a typo.
