Re: [Closed REQ 5502]: GL/ Open GL
> 1) The DEC alpha has an Open GL card, which can be used in X windows. Can I > compile Geomview to uses Open GL and Motif? The released version of Geomview does not include an OpenGL driver. However, the X version will do everything the SGI version does, just slower (much slower, depending on your machine). An OpenGL driver is being developed, but is not yet in publically releasable form (bugs with the hardware shader, etc...). If you're feeling adventurous and have experience in building large programs, I could let you have a snapshot of the development tree and you could try compiling it yourself (we don't have an alpha, so we don't have binaries lying around). > 2) Do I have to rewrite my forms interface to use it on the alpha? No. You could you the XForms package to compile your program for X. This is a very nice clone of the forms library, and you should only need to perform minor changes to make your program work.
