    That GPU is running Metro Last Light, Borderlands 2 , HL2, L4D2, ... without any issues so I don't see why it can't run Witcher 2 ... Minimum specs are even lower than MLL ...

    Well ... i enjoyed it with wine. If anything is messy, it's eON. If you turn two blind eyes to eON you can call it experimental/study project at best.

    According to the dev, mesa fails when the game is asking for a core context instead of querying all 3.2 extensions one by one. It's a mesa bug. That's good news, because it can be worked around (by going the querying route) in the game, and also it can be fixed in mesa. We only have to wait a bit, probably both will happen.

    Code:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.steam/bin32/ ~/.steam/bin32/steam-runtime/run.sh ./witcher2 --eon_opengl21
    Even with OGL2, it runs surprisingly well. Rumor has it there is a workaround for OGL3 in the making, so it should be working once the next beta arrives.

    Will this patched version be pushed to GOG version of Witcher 2 or is it just Steam? I got the GOG version for free as part of a promotion they were doing but the Steam one seems nicer with automatic updates and everything.

    I recently switched back to radeon though, and the game still doesn't work on that. Even if it did work though, it probably wouldn't perform that great.
