I'm building "Grit". I'll let everyone know how well it works. You
do need an nVidia graphic card though. Ric

I'll bite, why an nVidia graphic card?  I have a couple, but the Intel
GPU in this laptop would run rings around most of them.

Surely it only matters that it implements ${OPENGL_FEATURES} to a
sufficient standard to run the application.

Does this application bypass the kernel to talk to the video card
directly?

They recommended nvidia over AMD, which they seemed to have problems with. I don't usually read of Intel being recommended for gaming / 3D. Ric
