What about XRender? Is this going to offer a respectable framerate on HD3300 and a HD5770?
This is ofcourse not the way to go, but if it works as an interim solution I'd be happy.
Oh nevermind... it runs like crap! -_-
I'm going to have to disagree with ya just a bit. GL 1.4 DX 7, GL 1.5 DX8 is dead. Disable or pop up you don't have necessary hardware to run this menu items that want to use that on the desktop. GL 2.0 and 2.1 should be the bottom lines. But once that's done a lot of infrastructre is built to use shaders. So getting opengl 3.0 3.2 and 4.0 is somewhat easier.

There is no failure other then failure of the opensource drivers being able to fully support 4 year old hardware with a 2 year old API spec. I'm sorry you failed to understand that.

Saying that the open source drivers are inadequate for todays expectations is probably a better way to discribe the problem
KDE developers designing and testing their software on the Nvidia blob, now that is a surprise, NOT! It's fine with me but then they should advertise their software as such.
- KDE, minimum system requirements: Nvidia blob
- KDE recommends Nvidia blob
- KDE, best played with Nvidia blob
Because what they are doing now is very disingenuous. They willingly released their software knowing very well that it would cause severe problems for users not running the Nvidia blob, then after they got some flak from their user base they failed to take responsibility for their own actions and starting pointing fingers.
Come on. This is an end-user issue, not a developer issue. End-users using KDE and not using nVidia blob should obviously be filing more bugs.
