MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE can be used for adding or removing advertised extensions e.g. MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE=-GL_ARB_get_program_binary glxinfo
By that definition, gma500_gfx (Poulsbo) is unacceptable... which I suppose is a fair point. Although it's quite usable if you choose not to use composited desktops

In fact, my personal rule with netbooks is that Linux does not belong there unless there is a very good reason to do so, mainly because of battery life and heat. I know many people claim that they experience better battery uptime with Linux as opposed to Windows, but that is not what I am seeing in my personal machines.
For notebooks Im a-ok with Linux because they are not meant to last the entire day on a single charge of juice and I generally lug my charger around when I have to bring it out with me for the day.
this is so fucking stupid....
why does this guy keep running the exact same tests on some gay old quake3 games that no one plays?
you do realize that just running gtkperf would be a million times better for this set and give us much more info right?
