The demo (transparency_ovl) is working in general, but always if I want to take a screenshot the X Server will fail and terminate. Nevertheless there isn't much acceleration with my x86 box: no dedicated dev pipeline (dynamically-loadable shared object module) for the built-in graphics chip (CL GD-5428, 1MB DRAM). Simply the systen does not fit for this purpose w/ this configuration:

$ cd /opt/SUNWits/Graphics-sw/xgl/demo && ./install_check

After I found the header file cg12reg.h it's clear and interesting because I don't have any further information about the HR version.

Code: Select all
