    Video tearing, Intel Mobile GM965/GL960

    Hi guys...Got some CRAZY tearing on ubutnu 14.04 with Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 graphics card. I did follow the libsdl2 patch, but it does the same thing. The weird thing is, ANY time flash runs, it's goes nuts. Here's a video and two screenshots:

    The video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGGc_FrgsLQ
    Screenshots are:

    No additional drivers available that I know of in the repositories, all sources enabled.

    Definitely going to try that! Back in a few minutes to let you know. ) On a side note, everything else works fine unless it involves flash. I've tried three different flash packages, including adobe's, but same result on all of them. Anyhoo, be back in a little bit to let you know the results! Thanks for taking the time to reply also!

    Thanks, d-cosner!!

    You're awesome for being willing to help! Here's what it looks like now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3zCwQ8oPqQ

    I know the video looks a bit choppy, but that's because I was playing the youtube video and recording at 720p at the same time. *LOL* But it's nice and smooth now, I really appreciate it!

    On the other hand...I do kind of like parts of the first video...very Max Headroom-ish. *LOL* But thanks again!

    You can fine tune things a little more by turning off hardware acceleration in Firefox, it isn't supported in Linux anyway. Also, you can right click on a full screen flash video and turn off hardware acceleration in flash by removing the check mark. I do these tweaks on my system and flash works pretty decent.

    Glad I could help!

    I will do both of those next time I'm at my computer, which unfortunately won't be until tomorrow evening... But I really appreciate all the info. For some reason, I never thought to check for Linux drivers from the manufacturer. I guess Linux has me a little spoiled.
