    Vodoo3 3000 and windowed hardware accelerated opengl

    Is that possibile to have a OpenGL Hardware Accelerated window? (Not fullscreen). I mean, i have to work on a CAD app but when i initialize opengl i figure that i'm using GDI Generic driver for rendering (glGetString)

    Under Windows: not possible
    Under Linux: possible thanks to a Mesa trick

    You sure? I've got a voodoo3 and i can get acceleration in windowed mode... I think you have to use 16 bit mode tough, and maybe the desktop has to have the same setting (16bit color)
