How Do I Update OpenGL 1.4.0 to 2.0.0?

Postby morbid_bean on Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:59 pm


I am trying to load Team Fortress through steam and it is suggesting that I update OpenGL

Code: Select all
PROBLEM: You appear to have OpenGL 1.4.0, but we need at least 2.0.0

Currently running XFCE Mint 14 on a Lenovo S10-3

CPU: Intel Atom N455
GPU: Intel GMA 3150

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Your troubles are not with OpenGL but with the (very) poor native performance of this integrated GPU on a netbook: this GPU is not capable of more than OpenGL 1.x operations... BTW, LM13+ already delivers at least support for OpenGL 3.0 with Mesa 8.x.
No, Linux is not a Windows clone for free - Before asking any question here...
