fedora 13 desktop effects don't work on core i3


Hello everyone

I am using HP G62 Notebook running i3 with intel(R) HD graphics card. I have installed fedora 13 and the display is not so good as it used to be when i used my old laptop and desktop effects require me to have 3D acceleration. So can anyone advice me which drivers to try so as to fix the display and desktop effects.

Thanks

The Intel HD graphics is currently not well supported in Linux, you only can wait for the 2.6.38 kernel, which should support that video unit better.
