    Question

    Hello !!!
    You have to check your xorg.conf, and look at "Device" Section : search for line DRI and check it is activated. If not, open a new command line, and type :
    Code:
    # glxinfo | grep rendering
    or :
    Code:
    # glxgears
    The first command will say you if DRI is activated, by showing this line :
    Code:
    direct rendering : yes
    If not, he says :
    Code:
    direct rendering : no
    The second command will says you how many frame per second your graphic card can display by displaying three 3D gears...
    If you don't understand why, you can post your xorg.conf here, or change your screensaver to one which doesn't need 3D working...

    Did you also emerge nvidia-glx and set your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use the "nvidia" driver? Nvidia-settings is a utility that only works if you have properly set up your Nvidia 3D drivers.

    Just a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.example,

    I have done emerge Xorg-X11 on my root account.

    You need to do more than that to get your Nvidia drivers working.

    I'm not a Gentoo guru, but you should be able to set up your Nvidia drivers the same way on Gentoo as other systems. You might try this tutorial:
