WhooHooo! Finally found a way to eliminate screen tearing !! V-sync

In case you don't know what screen tearing is:

There is a way to force vsync with nVidia drivers but the results were not reliable and only worked with nVidia cards.

Never did figure out how to force vsync on my Asus/Intel 82g33 system, till now!

Had no luck with xorg.conf but I finally found the ticket:


My package manager "Spritz" did all the hard work and found a DriConf package.

No more screen tearing!!!!

Whooo Hoooooo!

1) All you all already know about DRICONF?

2) Screen Tearing does not bother you?

3) You know a better way to enable V-sync than DRICONF?

4) Other?

Sorry for digging up this old thread.
As the driconf package hasn't been maintained since '07, it doesn't run anymore.
laur@laur-HP-Compaq-8510w:~$ driconf
libGL is too old.
Is there still any way to run this software or are there alternatives (besides CCSM)?
