    No 3D with Intel HD P3000 (Xeon Variant of i7)

    Hi Forums,

    I just upgraded my system to a Xeon E3-1235.
    Ubuntu boots as nice as ever, but I don't get 3D acceleration (and thus no gnome3).

    System is uptodate and rebooted to current kernel:

    archi@thor:~$ uname -a
    Linux thor 3.0.0-15-generic #25-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jan 2 17:44:42 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    archi@thor:~$ glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
    Serial number of failed request: 12
    Current serial number in output stream: 12
    Packages libdrm-intel1 and xserver-org-video-intel are installed and there is no xorg.conf

    Complete Xorg.0.log is at

    It throws one error:
    [ 38.529] (EE) GLX error: Can not get required symbols.
    I still have fglrx drivers installed, but the ATI card (HD3870X2) is not plugged in all the time, as I don't want to waste power.

    I also updated to xorg-edgers. I still have X (*phew*), but still the same symptoms like before

    Any ideas?

    //edit: Maybe updating to kernel 3.x with better support for sandy bridge would help?

    Ok, I did not require a Kernel Update

    Linux was still running on fglrx libgl, so I had to change that.

    Usually choosing mesa instead of fglrx in update-alternatives should be enough:
    $ sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf
    $ sudo ldconfig
    And than restart X (service lightdm restart).

    I did a bit more, but that shouldn't have changed anything...

    I purged the old links (optional) and reinstalled the mesa stuff.
    Reinstalling mesa things installed other libs as well, maybe I was missing those (can't recall which).
    $ sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf
    $ sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx
    $ sudo ldconfig
    Good luck

    Wow! I'm starting to feel kind of dumb now. I can't tell you how long I fought with this issue.

    Thanks for the post!
