GeForce2 MX/MX 400 + OpenGL + Gentoo


I am trying to get OpenGL working with my nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 video card. I have followed the Gentoo nVidia document down to the letter, but still no OpenGL. Can anyone help?

What is it not working actually? "Still no go" is not good enough. Try telling us the steps you took and what exactly fails. Even if you repeat the steps from Gentoo's handbook is ok, so maybe you've missed something that we can spot . No acceleration? No X at all? Tell us ^_^

Well it seems I overlooked something in the docs, have it working now. I didn't have X starting up with default depth of 16 or 24, which is required to work. Thanks anyways

Ghehe. I've done the very same thing when following Gentoo's handbook ^_^. It's very easy to overlook steps in there I guess =)
