i810 Driver and OpenGL


I'm running X with the i810 driver and use some OpenGL based programs. I know the i810 based chipsets are poor performance in comparison to anything ATI and NVidia puts out, but... the OpenGL related things (including screensavers) might run at 5 FPS tops. There anyway I can make OpenGL based stuff run at least decently on this card? Thank you.

On my system (I also have an i810), I ran
Code:
XFree86 --configure
which enabled openGL.

I needed to then edit the xf86config file, but only to enable the scroll wheel on my mouse.

I hope this helps

Download an i810 driver from Intel's website.

I think the XFree86 files are still the same, just called different names.
As per my original examply, try:
Code:
Xorg --configure
These files should be located in /usr/X11/bin.

In my experience, the generic i810 driver that comes with XFree86 (I presume that Xorg would have a similar driver) works fine, and the driver that comes from Intel worked no better.

I hope this helps

i810 is an Xorg driver for Intel integrated graphics chipsets. The driver supports depths 8, 15, 16 and 24. All visual types are supported in depth 8. For the i810/i815 other depths support the TrueColor and DirectColor visuals. For the 830M and later, only the TrueColor visual is supported for depths greater than 8. The driver supports hardware accelerated 3D via the Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI), but only in depth 16 for the i810/i815 and depths 16 and 24 for the 830M and later.
from X.Org web site release notes, drivers section > i810.
