intel hd3000 giving me greif :(


I have a bit of an issue with my Acer S3 intel video card.

I've had Ubuntu installed on this for some time and 3d acceleration worked wonderfully.
I now have glxgears churning out around 325-350 frames per second which is great until I load up a game or two.
Even some old titles like Darwinia and Tribal Trouble lag to the point of being unplayable.

So, I have the intel driver installed and not sure why I'm experiencing this.

Suggestions anyone?

Here's my xorg and lspci output

Try setting 'Driver "intel" ' in the Device sections in your xorg.conf. You currently have a mix of "modesetting", "intel", and "vesa" as the drivers of your different screens.

I have Intel HD 3000 for my Lenovo G470 laptop. Although I don't play much games, I think Battle for Wesnoth animations are just good enough. Using stock Slackware 14.0, no custom xorg config, it just work out of the box.

With Intel, I would try that first. xorg, in my experience, is able to handle Intel without any custom config perfectly, the only reason IMO to have a xorg configuration is if you want it to default to a resolution other than the default, or are running dual monitors in a way other than #1 on the left side of #2...

Thanks for all your help guys.
not resolved yet, but will keep trying.

I rarely play games anyways, so it's not a deal breaker.
I'd much rather be using slackware without blazing 3d than other ubloated distros that are starting to use vendor lock in techniques....looking at you ubuntu. lol.

You could try the
Code:
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "sna"
in your Device section. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_Graphics
