I have followed the wiki to the best of my ability but 3d acceleration does not work. Glxinfo only returns
Code:
name of display: :0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig


I used eselect opengl to set the opengl interface to nvidia but I must have missed something else, not sure what.

My Xorg.0.log is here: https://paste.pound-python.org/show/KMbALqvj4123Wkn5ao7j/

To me, the most interesting line is
Code:

[  2664.917] (II) NVIDIA GLX Module  410.57  Tue Sep 18 23:27:13 CDT 2018
[  2664.917] (EE) Can't find the server GLX vendor interface.

But using google I only find people on the legacy drivers who run into that message.
Also, the graphics information section in the nvidia-settings program is completely empty.
Does anyone know what is wrong?

You can get more information enabling libgl debug to get more clues:

Code:

LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose


Verify if your Xorg is loading the correct libglx ( sometimes the installer can leave more than one version ).

Where am I supposed to set the LIBGL_DEBUG variable? Before starting X? Before runnig glxinfo? Neither seems to do anything. The only glx I can see references to in the Xorg log is the nvidia one, are there any other log files I could check?

FWIW, 410.57 is tagged as beta, 410.66 is not.

LIBGL_DEBUG is a Mesa construct. Non-Mesa OpenGL implementations may or may not react to it.

Oh, ok. Do you know if nvidia has some sort of equivalent?

I do not use the proprietary nVidia drivers. Can you reproduce the problem when using the open source driver?

No, things worked fine on the Nouveau. However I also managed to solve the problem by downgrading to Xorg-server 1.19.5-r2. So i guess I'll stay on Xorg 1.19.x for now and see if the problem has been fixed when 1.19 gets removed from gentoo
