Hi,

I compiled a kernel from git, and booted it, X will not start because the nvidia module is not there. I know that, so I try to recompile the driver by running emerge nvidia-drivers. I did that, and now I'm getting an error:
http://pastebin.com/d2850a304

I'm just curious as to why it won't compile! I am fully aware that this sub-forum is for kernels supported by gentoo, but where else should I post it?

If you cannot get help here, you could try posting in nVidia's forums. Since they provide the driver, they may have someone who can help you.

Well.... I couldn't even REGISTER on their forums, very frustrating. And the forum's copyright date is 2008, two years ago.

Whenever I run into nvidia problems can't solve here, I've found solutions through nV News forums. So that might be worth a try. Some people say nvidia IRC has helped them, too, but I've had better results via gentoo bugzilla, forums, and nVnews.

What kernel version are you running? This sounds suspiciously like:
