After a fresh install I got this message that the software-rendering-mode is active.
What I already tried was updating sgfxi and installing the intel drivers from within the script creating the x11/xorg.conf, drivers installed smoothly but after reinitializing the desktop there is still no hw-acceleration.
Code: Select all
mint ~ $ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics (rev 09)
glxinfo | grep rende
direct rendering: Yes
GLX_MESA_query_renderer, GLX_OML_swap_method, GLX_SGIS_multisample,
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.5, 256 bits)
GL_MESA_ycbcr_texture, GL_NV_blend_square, GL_NV_conditional_render,
I got no idea what else to try. Oh, tried Ubuntu 15.04 just for testing, no problems there... But I really like to stick to a stable and actual debian release with the elegance of Mint cinnamon.
