Subject: [gentoo-user] vmware opengl
Date: Tue, 07 Jun 2011 18:45:38
1 Hi list,
3 I have to run windows most of the time on my main desktop for work
4 reasons, but every now and then I install a gentoo guest on vmware to
5 see how the latest DMs are coming along.
7 The current KDE4 is vastly improved from last time, extremely responsive
8 and everything is really nice...except that I cannot get opengl working
9 for compositing.
11 The virtual machine has acceleration enabled, everything relevant has
12 opengl compiled. I'm not very experienced with X/opengl/etc so I'm not
13 sure what else needs to be done.
15 glxinfo gives me:
17 name of display: :0
18 Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
20 I'm not sure if it's even possible to get opengl working here...but I
21 assume it is as a mythbuntu vm works perfectly displaying live tv etc.
23 Anyway, any tips on this subject appreciated. It's hard to find anything
24 on google related to this.
26 Many thanks
