I'm having trouble in getting newer version opengl.
First, I get my graphics cards information using:
lspci -nnk | grep VGA and it returns:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0046] (rev 18)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [GeForce GT 520M] [10de:1050] (rev a1)
When I use:
glxinfo | grep Op command, it returns
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.0 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20 OpenGL extensions:
My questions are:
- How do I get new driver to use a newer version mesa? I installed mesa 9.1.5, but it's not shown in glxinfo.
- how do I use my nvidia graphics card ?
I installed nvidia-current and bumblebee. I tried optirun to run a program, it worked at first, but then it crashed when I ran it again. Since I want a newer version of opengl and mesa only only supports opengl 3.1.
btw:the crash information is:
[ 157.097081] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) Failed to load module "mouse" (module does not exist, 0) [ 157.097158] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
How do I get opengl 4.1 or newer development package?
