    Problem with open GL


    So I fixed the original broken pipe by installing xservice=xorg that brought everything back and made Ubuntu 12.04 pretty again but know it takes up so much of my graphics card I can't play doomsday or open arena which were a little jerky before I have a Toshiba Satellite c855=s5123 so it's entry level basic but like I said it worked before can I do anything to the open GL system to speed things up or should I move to a lightweight distribution like crunch bang
    Thanks for the help

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

    There have been some updates to xorg lately that have caused some problems. Have you tried reverting to an older xorg version to see if the problem persists?
