GeForce and DRI with 331.67
I have the 331.67 Linux driver installed and everything works really well. I have noticed that DRI does not seem to be installed (or at least enabled) and I have read conflicting reports about Linux/DRI/Nvidia on the internet.
xdpyinfo states that DRI2 and DRI3 are enabled for the server but nvidia-settings states
Direct Rendering: No
under the "OpenGL/GLX Information" pane. Also, starting this app from a terminal provides some more info:
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI3 capable
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
and them some swrast info which is not relevant. Should I manually enable DRI in xorg.conf? Or is this expected behavior (as in "no DRI*)? I ask because (I think) the lack of DRI support prohibits 3d acceleration in VMWare Player guests.
Thanks, and suggestions are welcome!
