Good day folks,

I have a nice little setup 12.04 on a 2001 g3 imac 600mhz 684 mb ram. 128 mb ati integrated graphics.

I have read very little about it, but i have a feeling that if i downgrade MESA, i will be able to utilize the 3d hardware acceleration?

This would be beneficial to me to free up my cpu since i believe without the MESA downgrade all my window drawing and rendering is being done via cpu instead of gpu.

Am i correct? I have a great little setup so I would hate to encounter a problem.

My screensaver (snowflakes) uses 100% cpu. So I switched to blank screen which uses 0%.

Anyone have any exp with this?? Thanks again all!
