    Exclamation Question about acceleration.


    Hey all!

    I am an unfortunate user with a GMA3600 graphics chip, which has no linux support, dispite being a high priority FSF project, whatever...

    So, Their is a Hardware Decoder by Broadcom that well, decodes video. This is fully supported on Linux, but isn't a graphics card. Will this help X run better?

    If you're unfamilliar with the GMA3600, google it once and click on an Intel forum . As for the Broadcom chip, It is a BCM70015.

    Please help me

    Thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you read this page: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&DwnldID=21938 - it is only 32-bit, however.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Hi. Got the same problem with a D2700DC Intel Mobo, with an Atom CPU and integrated GMA3650. This GMA is not Intel made, but PowerVR, and it's a piece of crap. Even under windows7 with the latest drivers it's unable to decode a 1080p video. Talking about 3d, it's just enough for Aero, and not very reactive. Youtube is unusable. So, I solved the problem by buying an NVidia Geforce 610 PCI (yes, it does exist, search Zotac) and using the proprietary driver under LinuxMint.

    Yes. But I have a netbook. The drivers posted above also are very outdated and dont run on current linux systems.
