This thread is for those who have undefined references in libGL with the latest nvidia drivers

it seems that the location of the nvidia drivers has changed with the new version (8756). the new location is /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib
but if you emerge nvidia-glx, the old libraries are left in /usr/lib/ and some applications may complain about undefined references _nv0000xxxx (especially KDE programs)

the solution is to delete the old libraries :

rm -f /usr/lib/libGL.*
rm -f /usr/lib/libGLcore.*

that solved the problem for me

hope that helps

Would it be worth adding this note to the nvidia ebuilds?
