Have you installed the nvidia driver? If not, do so if you have, then have a look at your xorg.conf file.

Hope this helps,

OpenGL is just a 3D API. The nvidia driver provides an interface for your video card to run applications using the OpenGL API.

Hm... You're right... I thought that too, then found this link and didn't read it properly and assumed from the title that meant there were actual "OpenGL drivers" as opposed to "OpenGL-compatible drivers". Oops
