I am working on a project with the Oculus Rift, and I wanted to know if anyone here knows if I can change it so Ubuntu uses OpenGL for a display engine as opposed to what it uses now. In order to run the Rift you need to have specific functions, while available on linux require OpenGL to be active. My project would include running ubuntu from launch through the Rift, so OpenGL from power state on.
Any suggestions or topics I should defer too? I know this is a can of worms but I want to know what I am going to ask someone else to do before I dump a huge pile of trouble in someone's lap.
