Will it run on the BSDs?

Hi all. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of installing Looking Glass and ploughing through the source code, I have a quick question: Given that LG3D was designed to run on Linux, will it also run on the BSDs--FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD? I prefer running FreeBSD to any of the Linux distros, but will simply use Slackware if there is a problem installing onto FreeBSD. Thanks, Jason.

I got the develeoper one working on solaris on a sparq no less... odd, that there isn't a solaris version of the session.. :\

For lg3d-session to work, one needs a specially modified X server. The
Solaris Xsun work has not yet been done for this.

The developer mode (without X integration) should certainly run as long as you install the relevant Java components.

As for the full environment you need to use the lg3d-x11 X server, if you can get this compiled under BSD then it should work. Please let us know if you get it working, if you have to fix anything, sign the JCA and send us the fixes and we will integrate them into the source.
