    Default Support for G45

    Hi,

    Is anyone able to comment on the quality of support for the G45?

    I'm intending to buy a motherboard (DG45FC) with the G45 for use in a PVR so most important is video playback of MPEG2. I'm not too worried about h.264 yet. Functional HDMI and 3D support would be very nice.

    From a Phoronix review I understand that I will need xorg >=7.4 and mesa >=7.1. Ignoring the possible stability issues of this software, are the drivers themselves relatively stable?

    Thanks!

    Tom

    As I wrote in this post:

    Everything works great except video syncing with Xv. You are correct in that you need Mesa 7.1 and a pretty new intel driver. Ubuntu 8.10 works.

    I believe XvMC works for all Intel GPUs. Currently there isn't a standard API for anything but mpeg2 mo-comp accel, so that will have to wait until extensions to XvMC are designed, VAAPI is finished, or another API (like ATI's XvBA) becomes standard.

    I have meant the h.264 video decoding

    Again, there's no API ready for that yet. XvMC will have to be extended or VAAPI stabilized.
