    New recipes for intel xorg driver and linux firmware packages were created. Just wait until launchpad start creating, building and compiling packages...
    @pali: Thank you. I will try your ppa today and give you feedback about the progress.

    • I created recipe also for nouveau xorg driver. So after some time launchpad will sync sources from git freedesktop and start creating daily builds...

        hi, I just update my kernel to -lts-saucy. Installed your ppa and smplayer+mplayer. but when I try to play the video, it seems no hardware acc because the video so laggy.

        Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
        - Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
          - Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
          - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
        - Slow video output
          - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
        - Slow CPU
          - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
            e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
        - Broken file
          - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
        - Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
          - Try -cache 8192.
        - Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
          - Try -nocache.
        Read DOCS/HTML/en/video.html for tuning/speedup tips.
        If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

            Can you support ubuntu 12.10 as well? Would be really appreciated~

              12.10 will be unsupported by canonical very early and then they also turn off every PPAs for 12.10... And it does not make sense to support 12.10. 12.04 is LTS. I downgraded from 12.10 to 12.04. So I have no motivation for 12.10.

                Ah, fair enough, I might go to 12.04 myself instead of 13.10 (or 14.04).

                    Can you paste the errors?

                    Make sure you have a video card that supports UVD2.2 (at least) or UVD3. You also need the libg3dvl-mesa package.
                    Install vdpauinfo, run it in terminal and paste the output to that as well.
                    I also suggest mpv player over mplayer. For one thing I'd say it's a very sane fork of mplayer with active devs.

                    • did anybody managed to run the unigine demos on intel (haswell)?
                      i still get the shader compile errors and hence the all white screen when the demos run.

                        sorry, but does really nobody know something about the non compiling shaders on intel haswell (and as i heard also sandy) graphics with the unigen heaven 4.0 demo?

                        • Just wanna point out for people using these custom drivers and kernel 3.12 with hybrid graphics. Turns out it handles both graphic chips own it's own, but it does need a little help. My laptop says it's using discrete but it's really using the integrated graphics. To make sure an application like Steam uses the discrete, just put "DRI_PRIME=1 /usr/bin/Steam" and it'll use the more powerful GPU.

                          I also enabled the Radeon power management and getting good temps. Just go into /etc/default/grub and edit the line to look like this.

                          Code:
                          GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet radeon.dpm=1"
                          Then run "sudo update-grub" and you'll have lower temps for your GPU, which is important for laptops.

                            this means that someone has to write the code for compliance with a better opengl profile.
                            i think the chances are bad that this will be happening

                            • intel member kayden finally lighted up things about the issue with shader compilation errors un unigine heaven 4.0 demo:
                              http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...659#post376659
