As you may know, Gentoo’s stuck on X.Org 7.0 for x86 and amd64 because we package and “support” Nvidia’s and ATI’s binary drivers. Finally ATI released 7.1-compatible compatible drivers. Now we just have to wait for Nvidia. Anyone got some idea on when that might happen?
I’ve been pondering the idea of moving binary drivers out of the main tree to a Gentoo-hosted overlay at overlays.gentoo.org so this doesn’t happen again, and I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback so far. Anyone got thoughts on this?
