Re: [Public WebGL] Linux 64bit/minefield 3.7a6pre



Hi,

On X-based systems, in Minefield, WebGL depends (for its ability to use OpenGL) on this bug being fixed:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=565833

I am already successfully using these patches (note it depends on 569775) with my nvidia card. Hopefully these changes will be checked in soon. Otherwise, you can always use software rendering with OSMesa, see
