I've got an OpenGL application which I'd like to run over on EC2. I've gotten Mesa 3D working using the libgl1-mesa-swx11, but its a little slow.

So I looked into using LLVMPipe to render and I can't seem to get it to work. I've installed LLVMPipe according to https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers on Ubuntu but it still gets the same error of not having a display to render to. I tried installing libgl1-mesa-swx11 and then installing LLVMPipe, but when I do LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 glxgears -info I still get


GL_VERSION = 2.1 Mesa 7.11

GL_VENDOR = Brian Paul

Can anyone help me out with using LLVMPipe on ec2?
