Question nvidia gts450 driver problem


Hi to all
I have problem with my nvidia gts450 driver
When i am trying to install the driver with
emerge -av --quiet nvidia-drivers
i have this error:

ERROR: x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-310.32 failed (compile phase): emake failed

When i download the driver from the nvidia site and trying to install it i have this error:

ERROR: The Nouveau kernel driver is currently in use by your system. This driver is incopatible with the NVIDIA driver, and must be disabled before proceeding. Please consult the NVIDIA driver README and you linux distribution's documentation for details on how to correctly disable the Nouveau kernel driver.

I need help
Thank you

So you need to use make menuconfig or genkernel --menuconfig to configure your kernel, disable the nouveau kms driver and recompile and reinstall your kernel. Then try again.

I am running a NVIDIA GTX on FC 17. I also had to disable the Nouveau drivers. What I did may apply to your situation so I will refer you to my website for detailed instructions:

http://www.usefulramblings.org/?page_id=3240

The write up covers additional procedures which don't apply but the driver portion for my card might also be applicable to yours. READ the section "INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVERS". I make no promises so proceed at your own risk.

Hope this will help.
