Default Re: FYI: Compiling 100.14.11 under 2.6.23 kernels

Sure. If you're not yet familiar with creating a patched ebuild, you'll want to look here:

Once I made a renamed copy of the ebuild in my portage overlay (in my case I'm using /usr/local/portage) and copied the files directory there, I named the nvidia patch file nvidia-fix-23.patch and put it in the files directory under my /usr/local/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers, and added a line to my ebuilt to apply the patch in src_unpack() after the existing patches, as shown by this diff:

diff -u /usr/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers/nvidia-drivers-100.14.11.ebuild nvidia-drivers-100.14.11-r90.ebuild

It looks like the change for the 100.14.19 ebuild would be the same, though I have no idea if the patch itself works. Hope this helps.
