Enabling Sandybridge New Acceleration
- date: September 14, 2012
I read here that enabling "Sandybridge New Acceleration" can speed up KDE, but the link it provided is marked as private and I can't go to it. I read here that the current Intel video driver supports SNA, but it is off by default. And this page that I have to compile the xf86-intel-video package with --enable-sna, but when I tried that I got this:
:~$ sudo apt-get source xserver-xorg-video-intel

Problem Enabling 3D Hardware acceleration.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 14, 2004
I have discussed it here few days ago and found some suggestions in this thread . I tried them whole but got no sucess. The package which I downloaded from Sir Winischhofer's website are not archiving and they are also much much confusing me.
Now is any one know how to enable My 3D Hardware acceleration of SiS M650/740 Vga card with an AMD DURON built-in processor. I am worried about it.
Please kindly help me if any one can

Hey there. I am using a laptop with VIA Chrome9 HC IGP chipset. (VN896)
Slackware 13 (32 bit). Using openchrome driver
When I run "glxinfo", I can't find anything saying DIRECT RENDERING yes.
When I tried glxgears, FPS is 170 ~ 190.
I thought there is no direct rendering happening since when I load DRI and DRI2,
glxgears shows a bit slower FPS, 150 ~ 160.
When i disabled dri and dir2, I get 170 ~ 190.
Reading the docs from openchrome:
It says that DRI is not implemented. So does it mean that I have to accept
the fact that there will be no real 3D (hardware) acceleration on my laptop?

Website is back down. Some off-site links WON'T work.
NEED HELP W/ATi. Make posts, please! ATi section is far out of date!
UPDATED: Now includes ATI, NVidia, VIA\S3 Savage, and Intel!!
You can also vote on this thread. Let me know how it is.
I have seen ALOT of questions concerning this issue.
After starting this thread, I have also noticed alot of people reading this. If you have ANY experience, good or bad, trying to enable DRI on your card/chip, please post them. All experiences can be learned from.
This is also a constantly changing post. Come back and read it again. I'm adding/removing/changing the post constantly, to try to reflect new information as it becomes revealed.
But first, a disclaimer:
READ YOUR DOCUMENTATION
I use Slackware 13 64bit, Multi-lib working. I do not know if any of the following will definitely work in any other distribution!
Also, be aware that this may not work on your hardware.
My experience with this issue is mostly with

Good questions. At least you're thinking beforehand, and getting stuff straight in your mind.
It doesn't matter what wm/de you use. The acceleration is in X, so all wm/de's will be accelerated
I don't recall what will mess up nvidia's drivers when you pare down the kernel. I haven't rolled my own in quite awhile. I do remember to watch out for agpgart, and the framebuffer options, but what to watch out for, I don't recall. Try it, and let us know. I might add that info to post #1
Yes, it definately will. While the open-source drivers are far above what they used to be, they are just 2d, and Nvidia knows all the ins and outs of their own chipset(s). You will be suprised, I believe, by the difference.
The best thing, though, is that you can try it out yourself. See how it does.
It's your system. (I would do it, though...lol)
EDIT: Additional info: 2d "windows" actually use some 3d video accel calls to move windows, etc. So, doing the proprietary drivers will help.

how does one enable hardware acceleration for the video card after the driver is installed? is it done automatically after the driver is installed?
Enabling Hardware Acceleration Support for Intel 82865 Integrated VGA
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 16, 2004
I came to know from Intel's site that support for Built-in VGA of 865GBF board is included in Red Hat Linux 9. When I boot Linux, it does include support for the chipset but it is a partial kind of support i.e. it does not enable the hardware acceleration.
Can somone please tell me how to enable this support.
I know that this chipset supports hardware acceleration because i use it in the Windows environment.
[SOLVED] Enabling 3D and hardware acceleration in GUEST VMs on LINUX HOST
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2014
If you are running Windows Virtual Machines on OPENSUSE or LINUX Mint (I haven't tried other distros) and are using INTEL (not the Nvidia graphics) you might be struggling to enable 3D and hardware acceleration on Windows Guests. This post applies to those running VMWARE workstation or VMPLAYER --it might work with Virtual Box - haven't tried.
What you need to do are the following
Install these packages
1) Driconf (OPENSUSE 13.1 ignore - not necessary)
2) install libtxc-dxtn (might be dxtn0 etc if its been upgraded). This package enables S3TC which is required to get the hardware acceleration and 3D available for the VM's
3) add these lines to the Virtual Machines configuration file (the .vmx file)
re-start VMware workstation / vmplayer
enjoy proper DVD / games etc .
(Note in the VMware editor also check the enable 3D box in the virtual machine settings !!!).
BTW this will also correct p
