To VMWare users

Post by zefklop »

Some of you might have noticed that recent gallium opengl driver (using software rendering) was imported in trunk, and is now used as a backend for opengl software implementation in ReactOS. This upgrade was the occasion to fix seeral bugs in ReactOS.

VMWare opengl driver is exactly the same as this one (they are the one who developed it), except that instead of a software rendering engine, it uses the appropriate interface with VMware emulated video card to get acceleration. So chances are that VMWare driver should now work quite flawlessly in ReactOS now. (even for directX applications, using wined3d). If not, any bug report would be greatly appreciated!

This is great! Gallium was create in mind of minimizing overhead, which should bring a better performance. Btw, since we are using Gallium, can we use its trackers, like the commited here:

That would be technically doable using the software rendering driver, but I'm afraid that without accelerated support (which only VMWare provides for windows, AFAIK), we're stuck.
