[SOLVED] Intel Sandy Bridge and OpenGL extensions with TF2

SOLUTION: First I headed over to the Arch Linux Wiki for the Intel cpu: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_Graphics
I followed the instructions on enabling SNA
I reinstalled every package pertaining to Intel and graphics
I restarted my computer, and much to my surprise, tf2 launched!
Also, I may have gotten rid of video tear...?

Edit: oh yeah, I also added myself to the "video" group, but I think I was in it...

I have been searching the interwebs for some sort of answer to this problem, but maybe I just haven't had the right parameters.

I am using an Intel i5-2557M processor of some description inside the ever-so-powerful MacBook Air (mid 2011 model). When I try to run TF2 on this beast of a machine (which surprisingly can run TF2 on Mac OSX if I would dare boot into that OS ever again) I get this lovely output:

[me@thiscomputer]$ ./hl2.sh
libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
libGL error: Try again with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose for more details.

Check your -game parameter or VCONFIG setting.

Does anybody know how to resolve these errors?

I have all of the dependenc(y/ies) installed (lib32-libtxc_dri)...

You're not the only one that can't play games on Steam becouse of Intel graphics.I'm in the same situation.Luckily I'm not a gamer.

Re: [SOLVED] Intel Sandy Bridge and OpenGL extensions with TF2

This might be a bit beyond my current C knowledge...

It should be possible to implement the missing functionality on Ironlake.  The code is open source, and the hardware documentation is freely available on the web(*), so in theory, anyone could make progress toward this.

"In theory..." only goes so far

Re: [SOLVED] Intel Sandy Bridge and OpenGL extensions with TF2

(sorry for double post)

Wait just one second... I have Intel HD Graphics 3000 in a i5-2557M processor...

That bug page says "before Sandy Bridge." My card is Sandy Bridge.

I should have support. What have I done wrong?

Ah, now I see it, the driver doesn't get loaded at all. You said you installed all dependencies, but it seems you're missing lib32-intel-dri.

I have that one too...

[a user@a computer]# pacman -Qs ".*intel.*"
local/intel-dri 9.1-2
    Mesa drivers for Intel
local/intel-tbb 4.1_20121003-1
    High level abstract threading library
local/lib32-intel-dri 9.1-2
    Mesa DRI drivers for Intel (32-bit)
local/libva-intel-driver 1.0.19-1
    VA-API implementation for Intel G45 chipsets and Intel HD Graphics for Intel Core processor family.
local/xf86-video-intel 2.21.3-1 (xorg-drivers xorg)
    X.org Intel i810/i830/i915/945G/G965+ video drivers

It is, of course, entirely possible that I didn't set any of these up correctly. I only ever installed the packages, which is usually enough. Was there anything else I missed?

Is this a problem?

[this guy@da compy ]$ glxinfo

Yes it is. You are not in the video group.

You don't need to be if the session is properly tracked by logind.
