Hi,

I am trying to develop a shell script to allow server side
Java3D based application to be deployed on a Linux server
(XFree86 OpenGL accelrated) running a servlet container
such as Tomcat. There is one developed for Sun Solaris (XSun) at the link below:

http://developers.sun.com/solaris/articles/solaris_graphics.html

I tried many ways to modify this script to make it work on Linux XFree86 server without success. Does anyone in this
list have experience to make this script work on a
Linux with accelerated OpenGL XFree86 Server.

Thanks!

Scott

But it's interesting. I have VmWare installed on the same FC2 system.
I have Win2k installed as a client OS. I can run my Java+J3D
application successfully in this environment. I *think* that this
Win2K is actually using the Linux X server to display graphics -
although I could be wrong, if Win2K is bypassing X to get to the OpenGL
drivers - unsure of this.

So, maybe it is kernel 2.6-specific? Anyone got a suggestion?
Testing and debugging within VmWare/Win2K on a laptop is sub-optimal, to
say the least!
