    All I can suggest is that you revert the packages (it's in the guide). You can do it via the failsafe terminal, or you can switch to the VESA driver temporarily.
    Thanks for that. But I was trying Bleeding edge since I was hoping to get direct rendering on my 865G. I'll try karmic alpha 2 (when that comes out), and hope that it works good on my PC.

    Thumbs down Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Hello Psyke83,

    I have gotten as far as the safe options and it is working quite a bit better but the one thing I was trying to address still has issues. Thats using software in wine that has video and flash in the program.

    I was attempting to get the kernel for your Optimal config when I encountered this problem. I can download it just fine. It saves all 3 files. When running your next command it gives this.

    1. Download & install the 2.6.29.4 kernel, based on your architecture:

    i386 users:
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.30-020630rc8-generic_2.6.30-020630rc8_i386.deb linux-headers-2.6.30-020630rc8_2.6.30-020630rc8_all.deb linux-image-2.6.30-020630rc8-generic_2.6.30-020630rc8_i386.deb
    [sudo] password for sully:
    dpkg: error processing linux-headers-2.6.30-020630rc8-generic_2.6.30-020630rc8_i386.deb (--install):

    linux-image-2.6.30-020630rc8-generic_2.6.30-020630rc8_i386.deb


    I am wondering why? And how do I get it to see the downloaded files? I am kind of new to Ubuntu but, I like to learn the nit and gritty way. I read your warnings and understand the risks. This is an old lapi that I plan on using just for this kind of learning.

    I am on an Dell Inspiron 500M with the 855G chip set.
    Thanks,
    Sully

    Thanks again.
    That's interesting as I have recently installed Eeebuntu on my 701. Its just great compared to the stock Xandros but video in iView is a bit rough. Media Player video is great though. I may not try this fix though, not sure how it would go on my little beast.

    You appear to have followed the wrong instructions (you pasted the first part of the Optimal instructions, and the second part from Bleeding-Edge).

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    For those using bleeding-edge:
    An update within the past ~72h seems to have a regression causing freezes - avoid it if you can.

    I imagine there's a log of system updates somewhere, right? Anyone know if there's a simple way to un-update something?

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Just upgraded to 2.6.30 Kernel (from 2.6.29-4) using -Optimal- configuration (still keeping ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates drivers) and using EXA.
    Results: I didn't see any difference. Same good performance on Planet Penguin Racer ~25 to ~32 no matter wich kernel.
    Switching to UXA, same good performance with 2.6.30 but worst with 2.6.29-4
    So, looks like 2.6.30 is a keeper. Now just wondering if I should use UXA or EXA (keeping my ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates drivers, I don't want to try xorg-edgers PPA drivers)

    I have a Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 and I have set my xorg.conf this way:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
    Option "EXAOptimizeMigration" "true"
    Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
    Option "Tiling" "true" # i8xx users: set to false
    EndSection

    Yes: read the changelogs (via the xorg-edgers packages and upstream git). As I said in the guide, I won't provide support for the Bleeding Edge stuff.

    You can sometimes grab the previous build of a package by browsing the pool directory where the deb files are saved. Launchpad doesn't appear to store older builds from PPAs.

    I've decided I don't much like launchpad, but I did manage to find one relevant commit in xorg-edgers PPA. Still trying to figure out where I'm supposed to report bugs for that repo...

    As far as I know, you're not supposed to file bugs against packages in PPAs unless the developers explicitly ask you to do so.

    The purpose of the xorg-edgers PPA is to experiment with the latest xorg code which is updated frequently, and filing bugs against a constantly moving target doesn't make a lot of sense. It almost makes more sense to report bugs upstream (but they may be rejected if the xorg-edgers packages have Ubuntu patches applied).

    Well, you will gain no benefits from EXA as it is no longer maintained in the Intel driver, and still uses DRI1 - the focus on development is on UXA/DRI2. The 2.8 driver will no longer support EXA (the current xorg-edgers driver version has already removed support as well).
