Intel chipset on Fedora - Horrorofmike - 06-08-2012

Does anyone know if there is any Linux driver which will allow Amnesia to work on a G41 chipset? Thanks in advance.

Amnesia require an OpenGL 2.1 capable device (specifically frame buffer support). And it also requires S3TC/compressed texture support. Any open source driver in linux by default will not support S3TC (due to software patents). In order to "gain" support you have to install the libdxt_txcn library and possibly modify the driconf to enable s3tc. How to do this varies depending on what distro and version of MesaGL you are using..
