    dri is compiled into the kernel and the drivers for Intel i915, i945.... are set as modules
    agp is compiled into the kernel

    tried to follow: Intel Linux Graphics: 2008Q4 and the instructions for the install mesa, xf86-video-intel 2.6.0 release, drm-intel drm-intel-2.6.28, libdrm-2.4.4 release.

    edited the X config accourding to: Intel Linux Graphics: Installation
    startx gave an error about the mode 0666, so i dissable it.
    with driver "intel" i get black screen when i start X. so i use driver "i810" but almost every graphic i slow.

    i have installed and running Compiz, Azureus, GoogleEarth /it had slow graphics before installing them/.
    in the beginning i was with vesa driver, and when i changed it to i810 it had major inprovement to the graphic but still slow...

    So my question is how to propperly install the driver for intel 4500, if there is not something else wrong, that is

    any help is welcome!

    Should your video ram be commented out?
    You also have a samsung video monitor in the xorg,config. Is that right, you mentioned you bought an hp (jealous of your new toy, btw).

    Tried that, even increased the ram to 512MB, but it doesnt work.

    it took me 2 years of savings to buy it and to install slackware on my first laptop

    and yes the display /accourding to Device manager - XP and everest ultimate/ it is Samsung display

    Code:
    Failed to initialize GEM.  Falling back to classic.
    I googled 'glx GEM'. it could be the root of your problem, apparently when GEM falls back to classic you take a big video performance hit. Any ideas why it failed to initialize?

    Nope, but i'll try to find out.
    Maybe something with the mesa driver from intel? i'll see what i can do.

    Thanks for pointing it out

    EDIT: as far as i understand TTM is being replaced by GEM. Maybe GEM is not yet present in
    the i965 driver. i read somewere they want to 'skip' ttm and provide newer gem that is not complete yet. As i understand the GEM is compiled into the 2.6.28 kernel and i dont understand why i get the message. also i'm pritty sure that "i810" is not for my video card, but whe i try to load "intel" ot "i915" the X freezes with black screen.

    Check your mesa version, when I was googeling around, I noticed a message thread from another board where the guy traced his GEM issue down to an out of date mesa lib.

    Installed MesaLib 7.2 - no change, except that now i'm with "intel" driver instead of "i810".

    No increase in performance...did you run glxinfo again and see if you avoided the default to classic.
    The other diag for glx is glxcontext which is going to test your frames per second rate. That will give us some baseline performance statistics for glx

    Now it is TTM instead of GEM

    this is as far as i can remember, because after that it crashes my X and i have to restart my computer the hard way Also i dont see the picture in the window it is messed up lines and cubes...

    I dont know if it matters but when i start Slackware i get " Undefined video mode number: 305
    Press space to continue or ENTER to see the modes"
    I changed the lilo.conf to vga=normal, but my screan is like 640x480 or less, with other modes like 1024x768 i get black screen but i am able to boot and start x /good think that dont need to see what i type to startx /

    Your old fastest sampling was 20.813 FPS and then you upgrade Mesa and it falls off 3.340 ---and complains about it?
    First thing I'd do is step back to the older mesa lib in -current.
    What we know so far is it runs better under gem than ttm and your still direct rendering. My best on the same distro is 333.512 but I don't have direct rendering running (because I'm an incuriou troglodyte...but that's a different thread).
    What do you think? I'm guessing the problem in xorg conf, there's a bug in the gem module, let me do some more reading tonight about it.
