Help with Intel Video card...


Hi everyone,

My card works ok, and X loads up fine, but it's not running to it's fullest potential, making Warcraft 3 running a lot slower than it should. I'm not sure what to do to make it run more smoothly, but I did a glxgears run, and it was hideous.

glxgears:

Code:
libGL error: open DRM failed (Operation not permitted)
libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
2557 frames in 5.0 seconds = 511.271 FPS
2495 frames in 5.0 seconds = 498.962 FPS
2565 frames in 5.0 seconds = 512.912 FPS
2544 frames in 5.0 seconds = 508.713 FPS
3000 frames in 5.0 seconds = 599.933 FPS

Here's my system info:

? Do you also need:

Load "drm" # module in xorg.conf?

Just wondering (i am newbie), what are you now getting on glxgears?

I am getting only about 831fps on my i945GM chipset (but I'm still using default kernel and i810 driver)

thanks!

I'll have to try when I get home, but I think it's about 1700 FPS now.

Take a look at the 3d acceleration guide in this forum. The very last section was missing from my xorg.conf file (the "DRI" section, which sets the mode to 066. Could you be confusing this with DRM?). It seems to work without the Load "DRM" piece, so *shrug*

sorry, i was confusing having 'DRM' as a kernel module with 'dri' loaded in xorg.conf..

i did follow that guide and I too am getting ~1700fps. still can't seem to get widescreen resolution though.. i have tried setting Modes in my xorg.conf but that doesnt seem to work.

nevermind- i found 915resolution. 1280x800 now.
