Default Problem with old nvidia-drivers-71.86.11 (depending x11-base/xorg-server vanished form portage-tree)

Hi list,

I'm using a quite old NVIDIA card aqnd it worked well but since a few
days it seams to be deprecated. After a eix --sync I got this:

emerge -DuN world
Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "<x11-base/xorg-server-1.4.99".
(dependency required by "x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-71.86.11" [installed])
(dependency required by "world" [argument])


And eix tells me:

As descriped by the user guid I'm not doing wrong:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/nvidia-guide.xml

In /etc/portage/package.mask i added:
...
>=sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.28
>=sys-apps/baselayout-1.12.13
>=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-87.00
...

In /etc/portage/package.keywords I added:
...
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers ~x86
...

So for me it looks like the xorg server which is required by my
nvidia-card (x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-71.86.11) isn't longer in the
portage-tree...


Don't know what to do now - do I need to buy a newer graphiccard? :O
Hopefully not...

cheers Chris

Hm. I used that driver until very recently, when my brother-in-law
upgraded his video card and gave the old one for free. His timing
is not usually that good. )

You can still use the nv driver, if that's adequate for your needs.

If the nv driver isn't good enough, then I'd say it's time upgrade your
video card after all these years. I never really noticed any difference
between the nvidia and nv drivers when I still used the old TNT card.

Your version of nvidia-drivers is listed as hardmasked in
profiles/package.mask:

# Mask nvidia-drivers-71.x.y since it will not work
# with xorg-server-1.5 and later which are the only
# available versions in the tree
<x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-72.0.0

You will need to find an ebuild for the version of xorg you need in an overlay
somewhere, or search the gentoo attic

You'll have to google for the URL for the attic, it's one of those things I
can never remember...
