I'm new to this list and apologize if this has been discussed already as 
I have not had the time to read thru all the archives.

I have had conversations in the past with the product manager for vbox 
and we discussed the possibility for future versions of vbox to be able 
to use the graphics card of the host system.

Our target setup is a Sun U45 with Dual Nvidia Quadro cards, target app 
is google earth in OpenGL mode.
Host: Solaris 10 U5 with Trusted Extensions, Guest: Windows XP Pro

Was wondering if this capability is/will be in future builds?  If so, 
any limitations to graphics cards? 

Lastly, if the host is Solaris and the guest is Windows XP, will we need 
to install additional OpenGL libs?

Any answers or comments are much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
