Oh,My God!

I want to use overlay function on QT, since the common graphic card not support it, I buy a new professional card: ELSA Synergy 4 380XGL. It doesn’t work still.
I mailed to QT support, they told me that XFree86 not support OpenGL overlay perhaps and suggested me to look for a commercial edition!
Is anyone know the simply and easy way, PLEASE tell me!

This is a quatro card right?

install the NVidia drivers and look at the docs: /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0

This is what I get from greping in this directory:

grep overlay:

Hi !

If I remeber correct it’s not enabled by default, I think you have to enable it either in the Xfree config file or setting an environment variable.
