The fan in my MacBook Pro turns up very often, if play high res videos or flash videos on websites, so I would love to test the newest GPU drivers for my Intel HD 4000. MacOS X keeps the fan silent.
I've only found a PPA with Mesa 9.0.3. Is there also a PPA with Mesa 9.1.1 for Ubuntu 13.04 available? Have no clue how to compile the driver.
Could someone post the terminal command for the output above?Code:~ VinDSL Unity Debug Script 13.04.10 (vindsl.com) ~ Current Date/Time: Wed Apr 10 10:27:32 MST 2013 Distro Release: Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (development branch) Kernel Release: Linux 3.9.0-030900rc6-generic Gnome Release: GNOME Shell 220.127.116.11 Unity Release: unity 7.0.0
and the output looks like user VinDSL has hacked together a script to query some system libs/information but to check unity/mesa you can enter following command:
sudo /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p -f

Thank you very much Gyokuro!
Do I need any further driver updates i.e. Xserver, Xf86 or Vaapi drivers here from the Intel website?

Tested it for a few days now without any errors.
Code:OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.1.1 Not software rendered: yes Not blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes GL vertex program: yes GL fragment program: yes GL vertex buffer object: yes GL framebuffer object: yes GL version is 1.4+: yes Unity 3D supported: yes
After few more tests, I have to say that high res videos still bring my notebook fan to max speed.
Any ideas how to reduce heat/fan speed or does my CPU and not the GPU all the work?
