Intel x3100 and opengl solved

Postby halp » Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:24 am

I have some problems using opengl with my x3100 graphics card. If I use glxinfo the only thing I get is:

Code: Select all

name of display: :0.0
Segmentation fault


Ive been told I need to update drivers and/or xorg server.

Is there a problem with opengl and this card?

Thanks.

I think you should not use the default intel driver but rather the mesa one

Code: Select all

gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

In Section Device add
Driver "mesa"
or if you already have
Driver "intel"
change to mesa

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

No that didnt work too well...

Ok changed xorg.xonf so it looked like this:

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Configured Video Device"
        driver "mesa"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Default Screen"
   Monitor      "Configured Monitor"
   Device      "Configured Video Device"
EndSection


but "startx" gives something like this:

Code: Select all

failed to load module "mesa" (module does not exist, 0)


So the mesa driver is missing/corrupt? What to do now?

Thank you for your help!

edit: I have no problem logging in. "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" fixed that problem. What I need help with this driver problem.
edit 2: Look at that! Opengl works during live boot. I think i will just reinstall mint and hope for the best. Luckily i have /home/ on its own partition.
last one: After reinstall opengl is working!

Glad it worked
But mesa is there by default as far as I know
