What is the openGL performance like on this card? Could I play UT2004 and run the OpenGL screensaver hacks at a reasonable speed. In comparison To say a Radeon 9000/9200 card?

It was a pain to get it working under xorg, and once it was running, acceleration required it to be set to 16bit, at 1024x768x16 (a X41) the default glxgears shows ~1300fps, external monitor did not get acceleration (~600fps). And the ogl rendering seams to be buggy with missing textures here and there. I don't know how this translates to UT2004 performance , but you can probably run some opengl screensavers with no problem. Hopefully xorg 6.9 and 7.0 will provide proper support. --Meta 23:01, 29 Nov 2005 (CET)

Do you mean xinerama?

Dual-head and AIGLX

I'm in Ubuntu Edgy, which makes the jump from GLcore to AIGLX for GLX support, Thinkpad z60t (Intel 915GM card). Dual head worked fine under Dapper (using GLCore), but now crashes X server when switching to-from a VT, or when attempting to run any OpenGL software (glxgears, glxinfo, et al). The kicker is once X has crashed it won't start up again without reboot. This is frustrating. I am about to embark on a hefty module recompile session, but I am curious if anyone has had this or similiar experiences.

DRI Script doesn't work for me...

If fails throwing a compiler error. dri.log looks like this:

So somehow the file drm/linux-core/linux/config.h is missing. I am using Gentoo with a 2.27-r8 kernel, just in case it helps.

Any help is appreciated, Keks 13:43, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
