Default 3D programs

Hi all, if I want to run glxgear on a ltsp client, must it have a
graohic card with 3D aceleretion (nvidia/ati) or is the server that
must have the good video card?
In other words I wonder if the "rendering" is made by the server or the client.

Thank you in advance.

There is no sense to try that on server side. It just not work.
You need all (hardware, drivers, apps) in chroot, i.e in client side.

Here is something I cooked with Atom/ION.

So go for Fat Client/ltsp-localapps.

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.

I don't quite agree. You need the appropriate graphics-hardware and
perhaps drivers on the client side, but some applications can still run
on the server. I don't have such a LTSP-setup myself, but have seen it done.
