    I suspect that something else fixed the issue for you, as your output indicates that you filtered only for warnings (WW), whereas the override is mentioned as information (II).

    Our graphics device is the same:

    Code:

    Adding Videoram is the only action I did as far as I can say.
    The output of (II) is the same here, but if I try to put in the xorg option
    Videoram 131072
    instead of
    Videoram 65526
    my machine cannot even starts xorg.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    dude, your solution worked wonders for me!!! i am actually able to use google earth on my intel 945gm card my acer aspire 5610z has. the solution didnt work at first, but what i did was disable the atmosphere in the google earth app by going to view and unchecking atmosphere. after that, GOOGLE EARTH FLIES, EVEN WITH COMPIZ ENABLED (before, i had problems with GE becoming all glitchy). not only does it work for GE, but my system is way faster, like when the system accesses files for example or multitasks. the pointer moves smoother across the screen, and scrolling is more fluid.

    i also noticed that the system overall has better memory management. google earth no longer hogs my ram.

    the only problem i have is the fact that i no longer have a splash screen when the system boots up or shuts down.

    why is that?

    For the splashscreen you can use startupmanager utility
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install startupmanager
    then
    Code:
    sudo startupmanager
    put the resolution to 800x600 or 1024x768 and color depth at 16 bits. Ensure that splash theme is selected too.

    Testing now to see how well it works...
    These packages worked for me on my amd64 install of jaunty beta+upgrades. Along with the mtrr fix they make google-earth work (do turn off the atmospheric effects) and compiz is much snappier. Ppracer is a mess, I tried to run benchmark mode and it crashed leaving me in lowrez.

    Thanks, much helpful.

    Moved out of Jaunty to Multimedia & Video.

    The thread will be linked into one of the Jaunty stickies we will release soon

    i tried that, no glory. just a black screen at boot/shutdown where the splash is supposed to be.

    If you are using 2.6.30rcX yes, there is no way to have splash screens

    gotcha. however i have noticed that if i run kernel 2.6.28-11 i386 generic the uxa option still runs and i still have the performance gains of this solution, plus the splash screen. what is the difference between the 2.6.30rcX kernel and 2.6.28-11 i386 generic?

    The 2.6.30-rc2 kernel gives approximately 4-5fps extra in ppracer for my 855GM chipset (the MTRR fix is necessary for maximum performance). I assume this is because there have been some bugfixes/optimizations in the DRM/i915 kernel modules.

    Other chipsets may not see the same performance gains, though it's worthwhile at least to check the newer kernel.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    uh oh, i found a bug in this solution. when i run it in itself, it works, but if i open google earth, open vlc, and then drag and drop songs into vlc media player to make a playlist, the system freezes. i am able to use the mouse but nothing responds to clicking. the strange thing is that i can open google earth alone with no problems as well as any other program (including firefox) with it. the freeze happens after some system lag and then the freeze.

    i find that commenting out the uxa option in the xorg.conf is a workaround. the performance is slightly slower but more stable and the freeze doesnt happen. however, even with uxa commented out, the system is still faster than with what i had before this solution.
