FAQ
Hi People

I have a machine with a Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express Integrated
Graphics Controller

lspci

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)


The xorg.conf is configured to use the "intel' driver and I need to
enable 3D Support with DRI. So my question is, Is this possible with
the latest updates in CentOS 5 ?

At first I believed that this would just involve enabling DRI so I added
two sections to the xorg.conf

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

Upon restarting X glx and dri appear to load but running the command
glxinfo | grep rendering

I still get direct rendering: No.

Some initial research suggests that the "intel' driver may be 2D only?
and that building a newer version of the driver from the Intel site is
not a straight forward thing to do.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get the functionality I
need going? Or should I just look at replacing this card with something
from Nvidia ?

Thank you for any insite you can offer.
