How to install/emerge nvidia-kernel-1.0.8756 ?
 
Hello,
I've tried to install nvidia drivers for the nvidia website on my new debian.
These drivers work perfectly when i've fedora, but i've many errors and xserver don't start on debian, that's why i've tried to install with apt-get install nvidia-glx command (debian package).
The problem is that this driver need nvidia-kernel-1.0.8756, and i don't know how to emerge or where download this.

Many thanks to the personnes who can help me.

Gentoo has the best source of information for a linux distro you should have no problem in getting more information.

1. echo "media-video/nvidia-kernel ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
2. echo "media-video/nvidia-glx ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

emerge nvidia-kernel should sort it out.

khetzal is on debian,not gentoo.Its really not hard to install the driver.Just downloadit from the nvidia site and as root
bash /path/to/nvidiainstaller.run
should be good to go.
