What's the status of 3d hardware acceleration in Linux emulation?
I'm running 8.1R/i386 and I was finally able to get DRI working (with 
native software) on my Radeon HD 4200.
So I installe Google Earth, but it's warning that it will use software 
rendering and is, of course, slow.

%pkg_info|grep linux
linux-f10-dri-7.2_1 Mesa libGL runtime libraries and DRI drivers (Linux 
linux-f10-expat-2.0.1 Linux/i386 binary port of Expat XML-parsing 
library (Linux
linux-f10-fontconfig-2.6.0 An XML-based font configuration API for X 
Windows (Linux Fe
linux-f10-xorg-libs-7.4_1 Xorg libraries (Linux Fedora 10)
linux_base-f10-10_2 Base set of packages needed in Linux mode for 
i386/amd64 (L

I had linux-dri-7.4_1 installed by default, but tried switching to 
linux-f10-dri-7.2_1; nothing changed.

  bye & Thanks
