          It is already, just enable it in the config file.

            • Mesa still can't properly build with current configuration. But we are working on it, see e.g. my last bug I filed just today: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53962 . Hopefully a package should be ready soon (but I am busy next week, so not at least for 10 days).

              What do you mean with SNC? If you mean SNA I think you should force it in the xorg.conf file, see the intel man page (can't post more detail now, posting from a mobile). Edit: see the SNA note in NEWS of 2.20.0.

                Yes I mean SNA (sorry for the mistake)... I'll wait for every news you have to issue. It would be gratefull if mesa could be make possible GPU acceleration on flashplayer videos (youtube); my HD3850 on XP could be used on flv only by 9.11 catalyst drivers.

                • I think it's the other way round... flash doesn't enable GPU acceleration when it detects that it's running on mesa.

                    Flash has been constant pain on Linux, but video acceleration under Flash, for example, is disabled even with Nvidia binary blob. Talk about "high quality" from Adobe!

                    On youtube and anywhere else, use HTML5. If its broken there, help fixing it by reporting to the website and at browser bugtracker.

                    From other side, there was some talk about finding the most-working flash version here on phoronix - which was eventually found; pity, that can't find it now...

                    And as of flash games legacy, use free flash implementation, like Gnash or Lightspark.

                    Flash was and is a zombie (now even more). Don't cure zombies!

                      It's not much better on Windows. I've read (at least with AMD Radeons) if you view hardware accelerated Flash, your GPU clocks are throttled by 50% (someone mentioned this on a Newegg review of a card; I've never bothered to test it since I don't watch YouTube and play games simultaneously, but it wouldn't surprise me.)
