The driver "nv" is the non-3d-accelerated nvidia display driver that
comes with Xfree/Xorg. The driver "nvidia" is what you use with the
proprietary, binary-only drivers from NVIDIA.
If "nvidia" isn't working, it sounds like you haven't properly installed
your drivers. First, "emerge nvidia-glx" and then "emerge
nvidia-kernel". Next, "modprobe nvidia" should load the kernel module.
Finally, "opengl-update nvidia" should adjust lib paths such that the
binary GL libs from NVIDIA are being used by X.
If you have done all of this and X still isn't working, something else
is wrong it would seem. Also, you might try to generate a config file
by running "X -configure". This typically does a pretty good job of
autodetecting and creating a xorg.conf.
