Out of curiosity, I'm wondering if anyone knows if the below package installs the *latest* 396.54 driver when emerging? That latest nvidia vulkan driver includes some pretty substantial improvements for gaming. The latest version being offered by Nvidia is 396.54.09-1.

https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

I'm *thinking* it does pull in the latest when looking at the build, but I can't be sure. Any thoughts?

Check /usr/portage/distfiles, anything downloaded will be stored here
Code:
ls -l /usr/portage/distfiles/NVIDIA*

Short of that delete NVIDIA* from distfiles and force a re-download of the latest version, that way of you have a stale version that isn't being md5 checked you bypass it.

How would any Portage-managed download not be checked before use?
