I've got a 12" powerbook with an nividia card. X is working fine, but I don't have the nvidia acceleration modules, because all the builds come up masked.

As my first ever install of gentoo is still building (emerge evolution is chugging away in the background) I'm not sure what I should do, if anything, or whether the builds are masked because they include x86 binaries, or will make my computer explode.

Help?

Apps distributed only as x86 binaries will not work on your ppc (obviously :wink:), but your pbook won't be compromized.
Simply do an
Code:
emerge -C app

to remove them.
To help you finding such installed apps try arch-finder.
You can find more infos about arch-finder and ppc's masked ebuilds here
