connecting to download.nvidia.com ... failed


my GTX 1070 is the only graphics processor that my computer has, so I need the drivers to run Xorg, but whenever I try to run "emerge nvidia-drivers" I get the following connection error. I assume it's because Nvidia officially no longer supports download.nvidia.com, so why is Funtoo rigged to use it?

Web search for the file, download it to /usr/portage/distfiles

# cd /usr/portage/distfiles
# wget ftp://ftp.fr.freshrpms.net/pub/linux/drivers/nvidia/XFree86/nvidia-settings/nvidia-settings-375.10.tar.bz2

portage still tries to download the file form nvidia.com anyway, regardless of whether the file is in distfiles or not.

EDIT: nevermind, for some reason the file downloaded with the name "nvidia-settings-375.10.tar.bz2.1", moved it and the fix worked
