For older NVIDIA cards, especially unsupported versions, you may need to enter the details of the '''''lowest numbered driver that will fail your video-card''''' into {{f|/etc/portage/package.mask}}. Example:
{{note|Installing the driver with the '''gtk''' use flags will also provide <code>media-video/nvidia-settings</code> which is a graphical tool for monitoring and various settings for your video card}}
=== Emerging the package ===
When the installation is complete run {{c|nvidia-modprobe}} module to manually load kernel modules to begin testing.
