Are there plans to merge the fix mac-example branch into master?
Hi Ryan, congrats on being the one to post the first message! ;-) Yes, the branch will go into the 0.9.13 release which will very probably happen in May. HTH!
Ok sounds great, thanks!
Is it possible to use x11vnc and have an accelerated opengl application without sharing the local display? I'm looking for a way to display software like matlab remotely and have it render 3d fast without sharing access with someone in the room with the computer. Can x11vnc do that?
The machine is not just headless, people do come in and use locally from the gdm console as well. If I set up xvfb or xdummy, that would use software rendering instead of the nvidia card installed on the machine. Can I get acceleration from the nvidia card and not end up sharing with people who have access to the physical keyboard and mouse? I think it might be acceptable to have a sudo script switch it into headless mode if that is a possibility. Does that clarify what I am after?
Yeah kinda. What came to mind is bumblebee, which runs a second x server for the Nvidia card. Googling around, I found this. Maybe something like it does the job for you.
