alex232328,

Thats a very old nvidia driver you have installed
Code:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0 is not supported by the 173.14.39


What does lspci show for your laptop.

Does it have an Optimus graphics system?

I don't know Optimus or not.

alex232328,

Do you also have an Intel Graphics Card?
If so, you have an Optimus Graphics system and must make the Intel Graphics work first.

It looks like you have masked nvidia-drivers newer than 173.14.39 but you want the current one.
The mask will be in /etc/portage/package.mask ... or you have a very old portage tree, in which case you have much bigger problems than just nvidia-drivers.

I installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.run
And it works!! :D

alex232328,

Don't do that - portage does not know its there.

Bad things will happen later.

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I've been trying to set up an Optimus system for a bit and can't find much documentation online. What sort of process do I need to go through?

Slabity,

You have two options.
Follow the Bumblebee project or read the nvidia README file in /usr/share/doc/ around Chapter 33.

Optimus Graphics systems consist of a complete Intel Graphics system and a nVidia chip that can only draw the framebuffer. It has no way to refresh the image on the display.
So, in low power, low performance mode, you use the Intel Graphics as normal.
In High power, high performance, the nVidia chip does the drawing in the framebuffer and the Intel chip paints the image on the screen.
