    Same problem here. I re-installed from the cd which wipes all the config files but leaves all your home directories intact. Works perfect now.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    I have read about 1/3 posts.

    Ok, guys, but how to compare our performance?
    Since glxgears is useless beacose, for example, we do use other cpu's on our platforms.

    I've been wondering if my performance is good enougth and i do not know how to check this.

    I get ~60FPS on compiz benchmark,
    I use spare drivers and my xorg.conf differs only for Tiling option (thanks!).
    I use ubuntu 9.10 at the moment. On 9.04 I got ~120FPS with compiz benchmark.

    My GPU: Intel GMA i915.

    Regards.

    BTW. I'll ask some questions.
    Code:
    san@eeepc:~$ cat /proc/mtrr
    reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size=    8MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x0d0000000 ( 3328MB), size=  256MB, count=2: write-combining
    As far as i know, my i915 can use at last 128MB, why there is 256MB?
    I own only 2GB of RAM memory. Does not he say that those 256MB's are registered on FOURTH GB?

    with this new update:

    - webpages are loading faster, nearly instantly again
    - webpages are scrolling as fast as i want them to using the hyperscroll on my logitech mouse, and stopping on a dime (before there was so much lag, sometimes several seconds before the page view would catch up with me)
    - scrolling in man pages (in gnome-terminal), openoffice, and evince is also working correctly again
    - penguin racer now runs without turning my whole screen white! i turned up all the settings and ran it at 1280x768, and i was getting 7-15 FPS. i had to turn it down to 640x480 to get a significant improvement to 12-18 FPS

    Yes, that's Linux way - spent a lot of time to solve issues that Windows users do not have at all

    I removed mtrr script from first post.

    Sorry for very long post, hope you do not mind. To complete information for you i have to add something more. Hope it help. Since now even 480p YT works good on full screen. Before this modyfications 360 was snappy.

    Code:
    san@eeepc:~$ cat /proc/mtrr
    reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size=  512MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x020000000 (  512MB), size=  256MB, count=1: write-back
    reg02: base=0x030000000 (  768MB), size=  128MB, count=1: write-back
    reg03: base=0x0d0000000 ( 3328MB), size=  256MB, count=2: write-combining
    
    san@eeepc:~$ cat /proc/meminfo
    MemTotal:         904628 kB
    (...)
    Seems that memory for OS is reg00:02, rest (128MB) is reserved for GPU (I set 128MB for mtrr in grub, since my gpu can not use more than this).

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    I have the Intel GM965/GM960 integrated graphics card in my laptop.
    My existing /proc/mtrr shows five registers.
    When I look at /proc/mtrr, it is owned by root and is owner writable.
    The contents report as five registers:
    Code:
    reg00: base=0x0c0000000 ( 3072MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg01: base=0x13c000000 ( 5056MB), size=   64MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 4096MB, count=1: write-back
    reg03: base=0x100000000 ( 4096MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg04: base=0x0bf700000 ( 3063MB), size=    1MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg05: base=0x0bf800000 ( 3064MB), size=    8MB, count=1: uncachable
    The script does not designate a register. Does it need to?

    When the script tries to write /proc/mtrr I get "permission denied".
    When I try to write from the command line, I get the same thing.
    YES, I do all of this using sudo for testing before I alter my boot.

    Do I need specific driver editions or kernel editions before the script
    will work properly? [NOTE -- If so, does it make sense for the script to check for these pre-requisits?]

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    [strike] "sudo echo 'text' > file" wont work, beacose 'sudo' works only for 'echo' command. you do '>' as regular user. find workaround for this. [/strike] forget it, i am bit tired

    reigames sugested (quoted in my post) to add "enable_mtrr_cleanup mtrr_chunk_size=256M mtrr_gran_size=256M" to your grub, kernel command line. it worked for me. find if 256M is for you (for i915 128M is enought).

    Are you asking because you want to follow the guide, or because you already followed the guide? You can't upgrade from Jaunty -> Lucid, as it's not possible to skip distributions (well, you can upgrade between LTS releases, such as Hardy -> Lucid, but that doesn't apply to you).

    If you've already followed this guide, and you're upgrading from Jaunty -> Karmic -> Lucid, you should be safe (though I wouldn't recommend to do that anyway, as there is quite some potential for breakage). As far as I understand, all PPA repositories will be disabled during the upgrade process.

    If you haven't yet followed the guide, then it will give you absolutely no benefit to follow it (as the upgrade will overwrite the packages).

    Folks,
    I'm really missing something because things are not making sense.
    When I look at my /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I find the following
    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    #++
    # Enable CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to restart X-server
    #--
    Section "ServerFlags"
            Option  "DontZap" "false"
    EndSection
    
    #++
    # All of the "generic" display and input sections
    #--
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier      "Default Screen"
            Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
            Device          "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    # EOF -- /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    I'm running a Thinkpad laptop with an Intel PM965/GM965 video.
    I appreciate any help.
