Enabling graphics accelerator

Hi All,
I'm working on an i5 core with H57 chipset.Is there any way in which I can make sure my DirectFB Application is using GMA-HD(builtin with i5)?

Well a method could be to use "software-warn" option in your directfbrc:
But if you get a warning, it does not necessary mean that you do not use hardware acceleration, I may simply mean that no hardware acceleration is implemented for the given function for your video card.
Another method may be to use "df_dok" test which will do many benchmarks and inform you which test is hardware accelerated (video cards icon in the results report).
