I'm not sure I understand what / how, but I have two laptops and both
have no problems with OpenGL on the external / second monitor (In
twinview mode).

Do you have working OpenGL on your laptop display?

I'd suggest you:
A. Uinstall the nvidia.com drivers. (./nvidia-installer --uninstall)
B. Install the RPMFusion kmods (Following the instructions in the link I
posted earlier).
C. Create a valid xorg.conf.

After that, if things still doesn't work, please post:
A. Hardware configuration.
B. xorg.conf.
