View Full Version : [ubuntu] Natty Narwhal Unity won't work

I just upgraded to Natty Narwhal. When I first logged in a pop-up dialogue appeared saying that my computer did not fulfil the hardware requirements to run Unity.

That cannot be possible this is the output of the lscpu command:

Architecture: i686
CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit
CPU(s): 2
Thread(s) per core: 2
Core(s) per socket: 1
CPU socket(s): 1
Vendor ID: GenuineIntel
CPU family: 15
Model: 3
Stepping: 4
CPU MHz: 2999.900
L1d cache: 16K
L2 cache: 1024K

This is is the output of the free command:

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1251612 916332 335280 0 74220 383576
-/+ buffers/cache: 458536 793076
Swap: 860156 0 860156

Summarized that is:

Pentium 4 3GHz core running two threads
1.2GB of ram

You need to tell us what your graphic card is, since it is that that determines whether unity will run.

Thanks for such a quick response.

That makes sense. I don't have one. Isn't there a way to use your processor as a graphics card?
