http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've run Xnest server. It appears Xnest doesn't use my graphic card or at least it doesn't use direct rendering. Normal Xorg glxinfo OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 8.0.3 Xnest Xorg glxinfo OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x301) OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.3 (HowTos)
