pszczola3mk,
The 1.0-7676 driver will support your card, however whether you use the AMD64 driver depends on whether you're using a 64bit Gentoo installation. If you're having trouble installing the NVIDIA driver, please post /var/log/nvidia-installer.log

Thanks,
Lonni

those are mistakes from my log file, i'm using gentoo 2005.1 with kernel 2.6.12-r6 or 2.6.12-r9:

No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)

-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.

what could be reason of those mistakes, rest part of log file is normal and have info about compilation and configuring,thanks for help

those messages are just warnings saying it has to compile the kernel, and cant download a precompiled one, if it installed ok you can ignore that

for gentoo use "emerge nvidia-kernel nvidia-glx" (w/o "") instead of nvidia installer

Why in the world are you running Gentoo if you can't read documentation?
