Hello Fred,

you are right, both i586 and the x86_64 version for openSuse 10.2 are compiled 
without OpenGL. Previously I compiled the i586 version with OpenGL support, 
mainly because I was able to do that myself on my machine, and a special hack 
(installing the nvidia driver into the chroot before compiling) was needed; 
the other versions (64bit and i586 for openSuse 10.2) were compiled by Detlef 
on my request, and he did not want to mess with chroot this way :)

Furthermore, I got complaints from non-NVidia users that OpenGL-enabled 
Cinelerra refuses to work for them. (it must be driver issues, or a hard 
dependency on OpenGL 2.0, which at least Mesa claims not to support for now)

I do not think OpenGL would speed up playback in your case. As far as I know, 
OpenGL is used only for speeding up some effects plugins.

If you nevertheless wish to try an OpenGL-enabled version of Cinelerra, the 
easiest solution (though not the best one) is to manually download and 
install the RPM for Suse 10.1.

I am considering providing both RPMs of the newer versions of Cinelerra. I 
think I will update the RPM soon; right now we are working on setting up an 
internal unified build system like the BuildService; this will make the 
future builds much easier, but makes us a bit busy at the moment. So stay 
tuned ;)
