View Full Version : direct rendering?

05-11-07, 06:32 AM
I cannot get Direct Rendering to work with my geforce go 7900 gtx under solaris 10. Is it even possible?
I have read that some libraries aren't symlinked correctly or something and tried changing them to this:

# ls -al /usr/lib/64/ | grep NVIDIA
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 May 11 06:24 libGL.so -> /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/amd64/libGL.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 May 11 06:24 libGL.so.1 -> /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/amd64/libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 May 11 06:25 libGLcore.so.1 -> /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/amd64/libGLcore.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 May 11 06:26 libnvidia-tls.so.1 -> /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/amd64/libnvidia-tls.so.1

attached is a bunch of stuff that may be helpful

thanks in advance

Go to /usr/X11/lib

type ls -l *GL*

Notice that libGL.so and libGL.so.1 are pointing to mesa. You will need to su root.

rm libGL.so
rm libGL.so.1

ln -s NVIDIA/libGL.so
ln -s NVIDIA/libGL.so.1

That go direct rendering to work for me. Now if I could only get the Java OpenGL pipeline to work...
