no "nvidia" available for opengl and opencl



I dont see nvidia in eselect opengl list and eselect opencl list

# eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
  [1]   xorg-x11 *
# eselect opencl list
Available OpenCL implementations:
  [1]   ocl-icd *
# epro show

=== Enabled Profiles: ===

        arch: x86-64bit
       build: current
     subarch: core2_64
      flavor: desktop
     mix-ins: lxde
     mix-ins: gfxcard-nvidia

# emerge -pv nvidia-kernel-modules nvidia-drivers

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

ipmi_msghandler        65536  2 ipmi_devintf,nvidia

But looking at the performance when I watch 1080p movie or glxgears I think that nvidia is used - but I'm not 100% sure:

# glxgears 
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.241 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.883 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.883 FPS

hm.. looks like it's described here: https://www.funtoo.org/Package:NVIDIA_Linux_Display_Drivers


Once the new drivers are installed, you will notice that eselect opengl will display xorg-x11. This is OK! With the new drivers, the libglvnd package now provides libGL and brokers the GL calls to the appropriate underlying hardware-specific library, making eselect opengl redundant. We may fix this is the production release so that eselect opengl shows glvnd instead, to avoid confusion.

@temptorsent could you pls comment is it still expected behavior?
