Well, the media libs are not improving the video card itself, but
considering that most of 2D operations are done by the cpu due to lack
of native hardware acceleration in the video board (this is my
understading) the medialibs should help on most cpu.
In fact, media libs use native vis instructions, instead of generic
instruction and that looks a nice improvement.
The box was installed from scratch, the video board was already
installed (but that would not change much considering the media libs
impacts only the cpu) so it sounded strange to me that they were not
installed. So, as every good administrator I did
pkginfo | grep mlib
nothing found. So I found the link on the sun site and downloaded them. ;)
go and have fun at:
download the media libs 2.2.1
