Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
I've a HP Mini 110-4102TU with the following hardware and have tried various of the latest distros:

Intel Atom dual core Processor N2600
Intel NM10 Express Chipset
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (shared)

All of them used the Vesa rather than Intel driver.

glxinfo | grep render returned:

direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300)
GL_NV_conditional_render, GL_AMD_draw_buffers_blend,

I assumed that means no hardware acceleration. Just wondering if anyone has managed to get hardware acceleration with the 3150 graphics.

That actually means mesa is doing the business in whatever way it can. It seems to smell AMD in there, wonder if they're involved?

lscpi -v (Please don't post it) gives you the kernel driver in use, interrupts, etc. lspci -n gives you the and you can google for that.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (Solved)
Found a working solution, there are Cedarview deb packages. Install with Xfce, then install the Cedarview packages:

apt-get install cedarview-drm libva-cedarview-vaapi-driver cedarview-graphics-drivers

Ignore the repository, it is now in Multiverse for Ubuntu and a straight apt-get install on Linux Mint.

Prerequisite: generic kernel rather than pae.

According to Intel (

GNOME3 requires OpenGL, the Cedarview driver provides support for OpenGLES 2.0, but limited “big” OpenGL support.
