    Phoronix: Intel 3.0 Linux Driver To Enable SNA, Support XMir

    Chris Wilson has tagged the xf86-video-intel 2.99.901 open-source Intel Linux hardware graphics driver today after making two significant changes: SNA will become the default 2D acceleration method and Canonical's XMir is now supported by the mainline driver...

        I gave up using SNA not that long ago because there were just too many things rendered badly / glitchy / corrupt (on GM45).

          I'm allergic to cats, so kill away. Eagerly awaiting full Wayland support in Arch.

            On a more serious note. Good to see Intel supporting XMir, even if it is a stopgap technology.

              It's just your GPU is broken. Sorry.

                    I guess this refers to this bug?

                    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55500

                    And there is no realistic hope that you'll eventually find a
                    cure by means of an undocumented GPU setup?

                    What is the usual way for the OTC developers in such a case:
                    Do you directly talk to the intel CPU/GPU design team about those peculiarities?
