> Where is that located? I have xdpyinfo but not that,
xdpyinfo should do for you. xglinfo is not part of xfree... but
if you know a bit about OpenGL then you should know where to get it...
it is sgi-opengl under "contrib" directory.

Xfree is not SGI and is not GL compatible. GL is
SGI propreitary graphics display code and works only
on SGI... there are major differences between GL and OpenGL..
glxinfo is for SGI workstations/servers and comes only
with SGI boxes, if you pay then 50k...
