Getting GLX working?

Post by DrLame »

I got wine installed onto my xbox, but quickly ran into a problem. After installing diablo, I went to run it and got lots of errors. After talking to some gentoo guys I found out that apparently GLX isn't working with my nvxbox driver. Any idea how I can get it working?

Well 3d on nvidia GPU's is only supported on x86 linux thru the Nvidia binary drivers. And needless to say, they don't support the Xbox's NV22 GPU.

I did read talk of someone patching an older version of them that works with 2.4 to recognize the GPU's PCI ID's, though that was a long time ago, and i don't recall reading any progress on this anywhere. I suspect the chip itself may be just different enough from a mainline NV GPU not to work :(

Maybe one day Nouveau (Open Source Nvidia driver project) will be supported...

If we had decent overscan, and something as snappy as fast as XBMC running on top of linux i would ditch it for the extra functionality i would have. But i suspect (lack of) RAM is a big problem here :(

I really wish i knew C, how to use GDB, some x86 and the necessary Kernel API's as i certainly have the enthusiasm for helping out with this (with linux i have always very much lived in userland).
