Default Re: Kernel options for nvidia driver?

Ok, after searching around, I found this ,
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_nVidia_...ernel_Settings
Hope it works.

Required Kernel Settings
Note: If you built your kernel with genkernel, you should be able to skip this section.

Make sure you have the following options enabled:
Linux Kernel Configuration: Kernel Configuration

Loadable Module Support --->[*] Enable Loadable Module Support
Processor Type and Features --->[*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) Support

AGP support is optional, dependent on your type of graphics card:
Linux Kernel Configuration: Kernel Configuration

Device Drivers --->
Character devices --->[*] /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)

Make sure you have the following options disabled. These options conflict with nVidia's driver:
Linux Kernel Configuration: .config

Device Drivers --->
Graphics Support --->
< > nVidia Framebuffer Support
< > nVidia Riva support

If you need help configuring, building, and installing your new kernel, read the official Gentoo kernel guide.
