Re: Q: 3D on Thin Clients (GLX/OpenGL)?

I used to use blender on LTPS with KDE 2.x - but it was not really
usable (slow!). Now, as I use the LinEx backports of KDE 3.1, I am able
to install kpovmodeller and innovation3d, too.
Alas, I can't use any of those:
kpovmodeller - and also blender, now complain: no GLX
innovation3d runs, but all displays show "no openGL".
I assume this is because the graphic card driver doesn't support this.
Is there any chance with miniITX thin clients and LTSP?
MiniITX based clients normally have very basic graphics cards, sharing
memory with the system RAM. I doubt if they support direct rendering,
but I might be wrong. Some clients have support for PCI cards, but none
that I have seen have AGP slots. I'm afraid you're pushing the limits of
this technology :/
It's no problem using PC-type systems with proper hardware. Just load
the right modules. There is documentation on this on the LTSP site.
