    Opengl support for Intel GMA4500 integrated, Linux Mandriva

    Nicolas

      Hello all,

       

      One of our users needs to install one of our software on various Hp desktops machines, equipped with Intel integrated graphics media accelerator 4500.

      The OS is Linux Mandriva 2010.

      Our software uses OpenGL (1 or 2) with 3D graphics.

       

      They experience problems running the software that does not find the OpenGL lib.

      We are currently looking into the issue, but, to start, I have a few simple general questions.

       

      -> is OpenGL supported by Intel's GMA4500 on Linux ?

      -> how can we check if the driver is OK and supports OpenGL (cannot find glxinfo, for example) ?

      -> in case the driver is not properly installed, how should we proceed to start (eg : a link to an appropriate web page, README, or whatever) ?

       

       

      Thanks very much in advance,

      Best-

      Nicolas

          it's supports up to 2.1 but a least one shader is broken ( tcmask ) unless that has been fix in a newer driver than what i'm using.

          it's part of mesa-utils on ubuntu should be under the same name for Mandriva, also install mesa-demo(s) to test out your gfx

          on ubuntu it's

          xserver-xorg-video-intel

           

          it should something like

           

          x11-driver-video-intel

           

          also look for anything installed related to mesa
