    3D Acceleration on Intel X3100

    starche Lurker

      6.5.1 build-126130, ubuntu 8.10

       

      When I'm starting vmware it says "3D Acceleration will be disabled".

       

      What should I do? iintel driver for xorg - the latest available, works fine in ubuntu.

          Ich have then same Problem here:

           

          • Lenovo Thinkpad X61s with a Intel 965GM chipset

          • running fully patched Fedora 10 with xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.5.0-4.fc10.i386

          • VMware Workstation 6.5.1

           

           

          Logfile look fine up to the error message:

            OK, the ability to read has its advantages!

            It seems to me that these two required extensions are missing. Any ideas how to fix or circumvent this problem?

              Found the answer for this one here: http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/DriConf

               

               

              Install driconf, start driconf, on "Image Quality" set "Enable S3TC texture compression..." to "yes".

               

               

              One down, one to go...

                it's not working for me SSDD

                  Hot Shot

                  Compressed textures is only half the problem, the other half of the problem is that the X3100 presently doesn't support GL_EXT_framebuffer_object, which we use to perform offscreen rendering.  This isn't however, something that can just be turned on since there is no support for this at all in the current X3100 drivers.  I believe that framebuffer object support is being worked on, but you'll need a very current Xorg, Mesa and Kernel to make use of it when it does hit.  It's certainly not for the faint of heart.

                   

                  Compressed texture support can be enabled by flipping a switch because Mesa has partial support for the compressed texture extension: it supports usage of compressed textures but doesn't support taking a normal texture and compressing it on the fly.  There are patent encumberances around S3TC support so you're not likely to see full fledged compressed texture support from an open source driver in the near future.

                    I have the Mesa 7.3 driver (not 7.3-devel) on an Intel X3100 and it has GL_EXT_framebuffer_object.
