    Intel is real 3D acceleration. The tests should have included Windows XP as a control group. This would add a measure to compare to.

    Consider adding UT2004 as a litmus test.

    I second the call to see the performance of Ubuntu 9.10 included here... is there a benefit (video wise) to running a distribution using newer packages?

    How to use your repo with rawhide?
    just add it like any other repo, with a file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ . follow the format of the other files in there, change the name and use the appropriate path for my repo. something like:

    [video-experimental]
    name=Experimental video for Fedora Rawhide
    baseurl=http://www.happyassassin.net/video-experimental/rawhide/x86_64
    enabled=1
    metadata_expire=7d
    gpgcheck=0

    ought to do it. remember to change the arch if appropriate for your system.

    dodoent: ah, I see. That does suck, then :/. Sorry about that. All I can say is to watch the bug report, Dave and Jerome will get to it.

    To first recap some important pieces of information for Fedora 10, Fedora 11, and Fedora 12 are the package versions found in each release. Fedora 10 shipped with the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, GNOME 2.24.1, X Server 1.5.3, xf86-video-intel 2.5.0, and Mesa 7.3-devel. Fedora 11 provided the Linux 2.6.29 kernel, GNOME 2.26.1, X Server 1.6.2 RC1, xf86-video-intel 2.7.0, and Mesa 7.5-devel. The brand new Fedora 12 release is using the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, GNOME 2.28.1, X Server 1.7.1, xf86-video-intel 2.9.1, and Mesa 7.7-devel. All three Fedora releases were left in their stock configurations after installation. The x86_64 version of all three Fedora releases was used.
    When doing such benchmarks you should issue an update first.

    F11 ships 2.6.30 now.

    The problem is that disabling KMS breaks suspend on my graphics card on 2.6.31. It does suspend, but it doesn't resume. I even tried --quirk-vbestate-restore and that works once, but after initiating second suspend, the screen is corrupted and hard reboot is required.

    So for now, I'm using KMS for my everyday work and non-KMS when I need to perform an OOo Impress presentation.

    Did you enable the 965 driver in the libva package?
    In the package in my personal repository, yeah. I have a review request in for Fedora proper; if that's ever accepted, it'll have to be without the 965 driver, as it implements patented stuff.
