Phew! KVM+nvidia success

well, i followed the instructions here and restored my old XP vm image.  and 3D stuff still works.  i guess maybe the two weren’t connected when it went wrong on the other computer.

of vague interest to some: first i installed the VM as an x86_64 system (yes, running 32bit XP) with two cores.  it ran fine but used one of my cores flat out permanently (qemu-kvm).  re-installing as an i686 system with one core sorted that out.  not sure which of those two things caused/fixed it though.

hooray!  right, back to the 3D programming then.  just as soon as i’ve eaten something 🙂
