I'm trying to use the steam-overlay found here https://github.com/anyc/steam-overlay I have a 64bit system. Steam will launch but throws the message that OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering. Using steam works fine but when I launch any games they either crash or give me a message saying "Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glColorMaskIndexedEXT'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated. Maybe I'm just doing something stupid I don't know but if I could get any help on this it would be greatly appreciated ;3

Well, why don't you trust it?
you can check your glx render yourself with
Code:
glxinfo | grep render


Or see your glx implementation with
Code:
eselect opengl list


If you need more help, you will need to provide more infos : what card are you using, what drivers...
