Hi guys,

This problem is taking me longer than most, so I thought I would post for feedback.

I have an older vid card (VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600 GT] rev a2). I accidentally updated nvidia drivers (that accidentally installed a newer version of nvidia-settings as well) which both are not compatible with my card. Now Im finding that I cant downgrade when I mask the newer version of nvidia-settings.

Does anybody know how to downgrade nvidia-settings? I cant emerge world because of it. Or can I just take it out of the world file?

Thanks in advance.

You need to go get the old version of the nvidia-settings ebuild (and possibly related files) from the attic and put it in your local overlay. After that, just mask all versions newer than that. Also mask versions of nvidia-drivers that are too new. You'll eventually want to move a copy of the latest acceptable one to your local overlay as well.
