3D Graphics Hardware in Linux - page 4
IntroductionThe G200 has been supported in 2D for some time as part of the standard XFree86 SVGA package. Recently, Matrox released the specs for the 3D portions of this card, and as a result, preliminary drivers for it have been written. They are available at http://www.on.openprojects.net/glx/. Click on the FAQ link and follow the instructions to download and install the binary packages. This will install a modified version of Mesa as well as a "glx" module, which will enable X to co-operate with OpenGL commands. Currently the G200 drivers are still in heavy development, so support options for them are limited. Make sure you read all the documentation available.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
