XFree86 3D Status Report

XFree86 version 4.0 has been released. Since this includes an implementation of the GLX extension as standard, I consider this page to be obsolete.

By including a recent version of Mesa, version 4.0 of XFree86 includes software GLX support for all graphics hardware, and hardware GLX support for some hardware (the XFree86 DRI documentation should list which hardware is supported, and how to enable it).

The hardware GLX support in XFree86 v4.0 is provided by the Direct Rendering Infrastructure project.

XFree86 v3.3.x

If you are still using XFree86 version 3.3.5 or 3.3.6, you might be interested in the Utah GLX project, which also provides hardware acclerated 3D.
