I have a new laptop with an Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics card, everywhere I look it says that this card supports OpenGL 4.0.
The reason why I want 4.0 (or 3.3+ to be more specific) is that I'm doing an assignment for uni where I've received an OpenGL 3.3 compliant GLSL shader to improve, but I can not compile/run it as I only have OpenGL 3.0.
printf("%s\n", glGetString(GL_VERSION)); after an OpenGL context has been created prints:
"3.0 Mesa 9.1.4".
For the people with Nvidia graphics cards I see that the solution is to install proprietary graphics drivers, but as far as I know Intel only has open source graphics drivers. Is this correct?
I'm a novice at best when it comes to linux and especially graphics programming, so please, bear with me.
