Thread: Graphics drivers should be listed in overview

    Default Graphics drivers should be listed in overview

    Graphics benchmarks under Linux depend strongly on the used graphics drivers. Therefore the currently used graphics driver should be listed in the information overview of the system.

    One way to get the graphics driver could be:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log|grep drivers
    That's probably not the most beautiful way but it could be a start. Ideally, later on the driver version is displayed as well.

    I'll be adding in support for graphics driver and version (along with CPU frequency) and lots of other sw/hw detection, I just got so much time each day

    Or, since the code is available at phorogit.com, give michael a patch. Don't make the day longer, just make it more productive in a global sense .

    Just committed support to git for getting the driver/OpenGL information. It will now display the OpenGL version within the software section. This is obtained through glxinfo.

    With the NVIDIA blob, they report both their OpenGL version as well as the driver version. With the OSS drivers, of course, they just report Mesa... For the ATI driver they just report the version number but not ATI or fglrx in there. To then provide more information on the driver, if /proc/dri/0/name exists, it will extract the driver name from that and append that to the OpenGL information.

    Much better then messing around with Xorg.0.log. So check out git

    On the matter of hardware recognition, the latest git improves the CPU frequency detection / appends the real maximum frequency (including if the CPU is overclocked).

    Wow, you are quick. Looks to me that you have more time each day than average developers

    Well, both features were on my TODO list and I knew only would take a few minutes to complete... so it fit into my usual 14~15 hour work day.
