    I did the fix and glxgears went up to 900 fps

    This is my output:

    Can you please paste the output of the commands from part C into your reply? We're happy to help but without more information there isn't much we can do!

    Haha, I skipped right to the last page and found exactly what I needed to fix UNR. Now it's speedier than ever before!
    eh

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    My observation with an Acer 5730-6918 (with Intel 4500M HD), performance seems fine with 64-bit jaunty with no modification (glxgears at 1100+fps). But graphics is not stable with a lot of tearing; virtual desktop doesn't seem to work with dual monitor setup (with a 24" Samsung at 1920x1200.)

    Since 64-bit Jaunty is not stable enough for me, I tried 32-bit Jaunty, the performance is still fine (glxgears at 1000+fps) with no mods. However the graphics performance plummeted to unusable state (glxgears at 120+ fps) when I switched to a PAE kernel (from jaunty server) when I want to take advantage of 4GB of RAM (normal 32-bit kernel only sees 3GB.)

    The fix is to apply the fixmtrr.sh and graphics is usable again (glxgears at 700 fps) any other tweaks to the xorg.conf doesn't make any difference to me, so I just leave it in its default state.

    Now rotating two deskcubes (one on the 1680x945 internal LCD and one on the 1920x1200 external LCD) in compiz is not smooth as butter but it works (unlike 64-bit jaunty, which rotates really responsively and smooth but with tearing/garbled display all over the place.)

    Yhanks for the howto. It improved the compiz performance on my Lifebook S7010 (82852/855GM) a lot. Unfortunately, I suffer from errors in the displaying of windows, especially when desktop effects are rendered. It looks as if the content of different windows get confused, so that in some areas of one window, the content of another window (or the background) is displayed for a short time. I have the impression, that it has something to do with the mtrr script, because it starts after executing this script.

    cat /proc/mtrr
    reg00: base=0x000000000 ( 0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x03f700000 ( 1015MB), size= 1MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size= 8MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg03: base=0x0d8000000 ( 3456MB), size= 128MB, count=1: write-combining

    The last line was added by the script.

    Is this a bug, that I have to sit out, or is there a possibility to cirecumvent this.

    Cheers

    PS: I followed your instructions up to stable/optimal

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Sorry for the noise. I yust noticed, that I stll had an additional device section in my xorg. Now it works!

    Sorry! There is still one hair in the soup: The video output via the xv driver (xine -V xv) does not work. I see a blue rectangle where the video should be. I think it is the color, that should be replaced by the video, when xv is in overlay mode.

    Cheers

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Thanks for this guide.

    I have a T61 with X3100 / 965 graphics and, like others, I needed to comment the 'Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"' in xorg.conf to get usable graphics. With that option enabled, graphics were unbearably slow with compiz enabled. Without compiz, graphics were reasonably fast. Commenting out that line when otherwise using the "safe" method yields very usable graphics for me, including with compiz.

    I have installed Bleeding Edge 2.8.0 driver. And everything is fine - DRI2, xv, DVD acceleration, blender, games, except WarZone2100 (now it does not start).
    I have:
    ivan@awesome2000:~$ uname -a
    Linux awesome2000 2.6.30-020630-generic #020630 SMP Wed Jun 10 09:45:40 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

    Thank you, Intel Driver Developers! I hope in Karmic will be xorg-xserver-video-intel-2.8.0.
