The Direct Rendering Infrastructure(a.k.a.DRI) is a framework for allowing direct access to graphics hardware under the X Window System in a safe and efficient manner. It includes changes to the X server, to several client libraries, and to the kernel. The first major use for the DRI is to create fast OpenGL implementations.
This project is targeted to port open-sourced DRI framework to Solaris, and provide 3D acceleration for Solaris x86. Meanwhile we would work with hardware vendors to enhance the 3D performance.
Commercial NVIDIA drivers are already included in OpenSolaris (and Solaris) distributions and are also available from nvidia.com.
