    Unhappy Wrong openGL vendor


    I have a very similar problem:

    My system is not direct rendering due to the wrong opengl vendor ("Mesa" instead of "ATI"), but I can't change it!

    I've tried sys$ opengl-update ati, but i get a command not found error.

    I'm using the fglrx driver.

    instead of using opengl-update.....try using eselect opengl set ati..... because opengl-update is deprecated in favour of the latter.....

    So just do the following...

    1)emerge eselect-opengl
    2)eselect opengl set ati
    3)source /etc/profile
