    Installing separate kernel modules failed.


    I'm installing my node with gentoo 2004.2 via knoppix live cd, everything is fine until i reached iInstalling separate kernel modules. here's my problem:

    Knoppix / # emerge nvidia-kernel
    Calculating dependencies ...done!
    >>> emerge (1 of 1) media-video/nvidia-kernel-1.0.5336-r4 to /
    >>> md5 src_uri NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
    * This version needs MTRR support for most chipsets!
    * Please enable MTRR support in your kernel config, found at:
    *
    * Processor type and features ->[*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support
    *
    * and recompile your kernel ...

    !!! ERROR: media-video/nvidia-kernel-1.0.5336-r4 failed.
    !!! Function mtrr_check, Line 36, Exitcode 0
    !!! MTRR support not detected!

    But i have already enable mtrr support on my kernel(2.6.8 genkernel)

    have you tried using the newer nVidia modules that are in portage? you may need to use ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" when you emerge it.
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
