I am sure they are working on it. As it is the xbox runs linux very well. I can't see why you need 3d acceleration. Although it will make a difference you are hardly going to be able to run very much with a 733MHz processor and 64Mb of RAM. If you want to play games then play xbox games.
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Careful what you say here. There is no LEGAL way to run both linux and xbox games on the same xbox (you have to use illegally hacked MS BIOS rather than 100% legal cromwell).

if you have a pinheader bios you can put a disable switch on it and that will enable you to play xbox games..
that is providing you are the owner of the original disc which you should be because piracy is illegal and robs the proprietors of the gaming companies and that is wrong...

You could have a modchip with a cromwell bios and a chip disable switch. You can play xbox games then flick a switch to enable your modchip and you can boot gentoox.
