    Code:
    eselect opengl set <graphics card>
    <graphics card> should be either nvidia or ati, depending on what you have.

    For more complete instructions on setting up OpenGl, see: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml

    If you have a via card, things are quite a bit different. I've written about the steps that worked for me: http://www.nwthomas.com/blog/?p=34

    Both of the above things were quite informative and I have successfully configured the card. Thanks to both.
