I can't get opengl to work with nvidia, but it's o.k. with xorg-x11.

 ~ # eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
  [1]   nvidia *
  [2]   xorg-x11
~ #   glxinfo
name of display: localhost:25.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

~ # eselect opengl set 2
Switching to xorg-x11 OpenGL interface... done
alaya ~ # glxinfo | head -5
name of display: localhost:25.0
display: localhost:25  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4

Any ideas? I'm running nvidia-drivers-396.24-r1 with the following use flags:

 U I
 + + X           : Install the driver, OpenGL libraries, XvMC libraries, and VDPAU libraries
 + + abi_x86_32  : 32-bit (x86) libraries
 - - acpi        : Add support for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
 - - compat      : Install non-GLVND libGL for backwards compatibility
 + + driver      : Install the kernel driver module
 - - gtk3        : Install nvidia-settings with support for GTK+ 3
 + + kms         : Enable support for kernel mode setting (KMS)
 + + multilib    : On 64bit systems, if you want to be able to compile 32bit and 64bit binaries
 - - pax_kernel  : PaX patches from the PaX project
 - - static-libs : Build static versions of dynamic libraries as well
 + + tools       : Install additional tools such as nvidia-settings
 + + uvm         : Install the Unified Memory kernel module (nvidia-uvm) for sharing memory between CPU and GPU in CUDA programs
 - - wayland     : Enable dev-libs/wayland backend

I am a member of the video group and have run a number of cuda applications on the card.

Any ideas??

You need to provide xorg.log, maybe check your dmesg also, nvidia do report error there too.
