This page is in need of updates.


Eselect (OpenGL) (also called eselect-opengl) is a module for Eselect that allows the OpenGL implementation on a Funtoo Linux or Gentoo Linux system to be switched between a variety of installed OpenGL implementations. It functions by creating an env,d file at /etc/env.d/03opengl which contains OpenGL settings. A sample env.d file for a multilib system with xorg-x11 OpenGL implementation may look like this:

/etc/env.d/03opengl: An example env.d file for eselect-opengl
# Configuration file for eselect
# This file has been automatically generated.
