Video acceleration with Modesetting on 016.01
GoboLinux 016.01 ships with the xf86-video-modesetting driver overriding the deprecated xf86-video-intel driver. Modesetting is noticeably more stable, but it won't offer acceleration for 2D operations by default.
You will have to recompile the following packages to achieve Gallium-based 2D acceleration on 016.01 systems:
Compile xorg-server 1.18.4
Furthermore, you will need to modify two Xorg settings files:
/System/Index/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.confand add an "AccelMethod" entry to the "Device" section:
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "modesetting" Option "AccelMethod" "glamor" EndSection
/System/Index/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/glamor.confso it reads:
Section "Module" Load "dri2" Load "dri3" Load "glamoregl" EndSection
Now you should be able to get 2D acceleration the next time you launch the X server.
