Phoronix: VirtualBox 2.2.0 Released With Linux 3D Support
Last month we shared that VirtualBox picked up 3D acceleration for virtualized Linux guests after Sun Microsystems had already delivered OpenGL acceleration and even Direct3D acceleration to Windows guests months earlier. This support for having hardware-accelerated OpenGL support in Linux guest operating systems came in a development release of VirtualBox 2.2, but today Sun Microsystems has officially updated its virtualization platform. VirtualBox 2.2.0 was released this morning with OpenGL 3D acceleration for Linux and Solaris guests...
While the site gives instructions to install vbox2.2 on Intrepid, I think a mistake has been made, because here the files aren't available (they are available for hardy, gutsy, dapper, sarge, lenny and etch).
So if anyone on the vbox Linux team is reading this: please fix it!
BTW: the .deb files for Intrepid *are* indexed by aptitude & synaptic, they're just not installable because they aren't available (yet). Temporary workaround: download and install the proper deb file manually here.
EDIT: this has been fixed now, I see.
