WHATIF and Linux

Hello everybody,

has anybody ever made it to let WhatIf run under Linux and get the 3D 
stereo mode working using stereographics hardware (emitter connected to 
3 pin Mini DIN socket on the graphics card and Crystal Eyes Shutter 
Glasses)?

We desperatly tried to get it work with an Elsa Gloria XXL (3DLabs Glint 
MX chipset), but no way. Linux (resp. XFree86) doesn't support this card 
very well.
The WhatIf manual says, that you "only" have to add a modeline to your 
XF86Config which defines an interlace-mode. Unfortunatly the 3DLabs 
accelerated server doesn't support interlace.

If anybody ever got stereoscopic view work under Linux/XFree86, what 
kind of graphics card do you have?
I would be very happy to get a hint.

Thank you very much in advance

Michael
