I'm trying to run doom3 in my laptop with a GMA965/X3100, but it seems that
the xorg-video-intel driver does not implement the features below. Since I
cannot find any reference to this problem anywhere else, I would like to ask
if anybody here could confirm this problem, and if there are plans in the
queue to support them in the near future.
One of the current problems I'm facing (I'm not sure if there's any relation
with the features below, I'd appreciate any comments) is that all textures
are seamlessly black. (well, almost all, I can see the in-game terminal
screens, see http://mrc.gran.googlepages.com/shot00001.png and
I'm using xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.1.1-0ubuntu5 (

You can active s3tc installing driconf (aptitude/apt-get install
driconf). I can help more, sorry. :-)

Hi, Rafael, cheers.
I had already tried to use driconf. But, somehow, the i965 driver just seems
to ignore the flag in ~/.drirc.
Even when this file contains
<device screen="0" driver="i965">
<option name="force_s3tc_enable" value="true" />
glxinfo does not display the GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc extension.
The relevant glxinfo version info is below:
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 965GM 4.1.3002 x86/MMX/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.0.1
This problem looks similar to an i915 bug last year at
There's a related comment at the end of this bug: "At a quick glance, it
looks to me like the vblank_mode and allow_large_textures option (in both
i830 and i915 contexts) would be broken just as well? The i965 driver also
looks suspicious, though this one doesn't seem to initialize the context
option cache in the first place. "
It seems that the xorg i965 driver's s3tc support is broken. Can anyone with
a GMA965/X3100 confirm this driconf/glxinfo misbehavior?
