So I use the Nouveau drivers for my GeForce GTS 250, which is great. However I came across this article on Phoronix : http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA5NTM

Apparently ST3C is now supported by Nouveau. I would really like to get this running under gentoo. Does anybody know how?

It says what you need right there in the article.

I think all you need to do is emerge libtxc_dxtn just like all the other OSS drivers. I have to use it with the intel OSS drivers for exactly one application: Wine/World of Warcrack.

Ok it works. Here is the procedure:

Add the x11 overlay.
unmask =media-libs/mesa-9999 and =xf86-video-nouveau-9999
emerge -1 media-libs/mesa xorg-server xf86-video-nouveau
emerge media-libs/libtxc_dxtn


This maybe overkill, but it does work.
