My laptop is a Core 2 Duo Dell from 2008. I am trying to run some OpenGL programs. The program with following code doesn't work:
glutInitContextVersion(4, 0); glutInitContextFlags(GLUT_FORWARD_COMPATIBLE); glutInitContextProfile(GLUT_CORE_PROFILE);
The code requires OpenGL version of 4.0.
glxinfo suggests OpenGL version 2.1.
The details of my Intel graphics driver from System Settings are:
I don't see anything useful in the additional drivers section, except one Broadcom driver already activated. From Ubuntu Software Centre, I tried searching some other drivers and found Nvidia '173' and 'current' drivers. But I am not sure, if I should install them. Will it break whatever OpenGL programs are running fine?
What should I do to upgrade my graphics driver, so that it starts supporting latest OpenGL version like 4.0 to 4.3?
