    porting to Linux

    I going to be porting an OpenGL API to Linux in about a month or so, and I have a couple of questions.

    What level of hardware GL is available on the Linux platform.

    Are fullscreen apps and video mode switches possible.

    Could I use an API like SDL and still get hardware GL.

    thanks

    A fair amount. Matrox G400/450, most if not all NVidia cards, some ATI cards, Voodoo 2 and up, all supported. Probably even more that I'm not aware of.

    Take a look at http://dri.sourceforge.net/ and click on "Status" to see a more comprehensive list.

    Yup.

    Yup.
