    on a side note i did manage to downgrade the drivers to mesa 9.21xxx whatever, but while doing so, aptitude kept warning me about my kde libraries and such and how they were not meeting requirements for downgrading ??? anyway downgrading basically broke my kde desktop... i had to re-install kde-full, kde-plasma-workspaces, etc manually using aptitude, sort of worked, but my system was still using libvmpipe software gl renderer???

    so, know on to my third linux distro (kubuntu) in as many a months, thats one way to learn linux!

    Love this KDE desktop, so many options!

    Default Bonaire problems

    Hi again, following up on my last post. My 7790 with Mesa 10 does not have vdpau active. This is an up to date Saucy system wi.

    I've confirmed that I have all the relevant Oibaf packages up to date. vdpauinfo and glxinfo are firmly uninformative. e.g.
    e.g. $vdpauinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    Failed to open VDPAU backend cannot open shared object file:

    name of display: :0.0
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

    Something is up with glamor:
    e.g. $Xorg.0.log | grep glamor ->
    [ 10.065] (II) LoadModule: "glamoregl"
    [ 10.120] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/
    [ 10.335] (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ undefined symbol: _glapi_tls_Context
    [ 10.335] (II) UnloadModule: "glamoregl"
    [ 10.335] (II) Unloading glamoregl
    [ 10.335] (EE) Failed to load module "glamoregl" (loader failed, 7)
    [ 10.396] (WW) RADEON(0): glamor requires Load "glamoregl" in Section "Module", disabling.

    This might be a better look at it:
    $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

    Thanks a lot for all your work with your ppa. I am wondering what happened to the vdpau support on 12.04. Few weeks ago it worked well, but for some time all I got was a white screen in xbmc. Is it going to be fixed?

    Hi , pretty much same question here about openGL 3.2 support for intel.
    I'm running mint 15 on a dell N5110 with nvidia and hd3000 (i915?) , my test base is fabric engine to see whether intel can be in a short time a good replacement for more expensive nvidia laptops.

    I've installed the ppa, and then done the dist-update.
    The driver seems installed properly as when I type glxinfo, this is what I get :

    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.0.0-devel (git-2f89662 raring-oibaf-ppa)
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
    OpenGL context flags: (none)
    OpenGL extensions:

    The Version though seems fixed to 3.0 and this gets reported by fabric as well when I try to run a demo:
    [FABRIC:MT:Viewport_RenderSequenceDataDGNode:update RenderSequenceData] Disabling OpenGL rendering: Creation Platform requires at least OpenGL 3.2, and the curreng OpenGL version is 3.0 Mesa 10.0.0-devel (git-2f89662 raring-oibaf-ppa)

    I've been trying also to install the experimental one too, hoping for some improvements, but i can't see any /usr/lib/dri-alternates file or folder after installing them.

    If there's any more information I can provide just let me know , thanks.

    I feel some disturbance in the FORCE;;;

    AIGLX error: i965 exports no extensions (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/ undefined symbol: __driDriverExtensions
    From latest oibaf and saucy repos...

    Default problem with glxinfo

    glxinfo not listed core profiles, i think is a error from glxinfo and not from drivers

    If you have an Intel and want OpenGL > 3.0 try updating to saucy and/or upgrading to a recent kernel (just a guess, no idea if it will work).

    Cheers Oibaf,
    here what I've got: Linux hdd-Inspiron-N5110 3.8.0-32-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 22:35:23 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    and mint 15 is based on 13.04 , which should fairly new. I'm just wondering whether I should expect to have GL 3.2 on the HD3000 or not.

    @donquixote: try installing a 3.12 kernel.
