ok well i recompiled without 4k stacks like that fix said, emreged new masked nvidia modules and everythign works :) i even have tv-out working. But i was wonderinng, right now i have a clone set up with my tv is there any way to get my configuration to be more like a video overlay, so i can watch a movie on one screen and still be able to use the other screen for stuff. Thanks
leni07 I had this problem too with 2.6.7 (and the -bk10, the -bk5 died before X inited) witht the -5336, I updated to -6106 (or what ever the num) and the problem disappeared - I use the 4K stacks in 2.6.7.
you must select legacy /proc/pci until kernel help says its obsolete, without it nvidia module don't load :idea:
I've resolved this problem in this mode

What I did was add the following to /etc/portage/package.keywords:
Then I emerged my nvidia stuff:
All seems well. You could potentially use
emerge -uav media-video/nvidia-kernel media-video/nvidia-glx
I guess, but I've recently read that this is not the proper way to do it now.
