Intel Graphic Media Accel 950
« on: November 21, 2007, 08:40:38 pm »
hi, im thinking of buying a Philips lx3000 and running linux mce on it instead of vista mce, but am not sure if the intergrated graphics is supported. Will Linux MCE support     Intel Graphic Media Accel 950 ?

thx :)

We've tested a number of MB that have i950 graphics chips onboard and they work fine for UI1 & UI2 with Overlay... but they cannot currently handle UI2 with transparency (due to limitation in Intel's current drivers).

I hope to add these i945 MB's to the Wiki by the weekend ;-)

Hope the above helps you

thx for reply, acutally i re-thought that purchase and decided to build a htpc from scratch. I will be using MB Asus M2NVM-DVI AM2 which uses GeForce 7050 Graphics so im hoping LMCE is gonna run oki on this, otherwise ill be stuck with using a windows based system lol.

Hmmm... the 7050 is still a little bit of an issue due to the nVidia drivers still being a bit unstable. I would suggest that you don't buy anything yet with a 7050 inside it if you want a stable usable lmce system in the near term. On the other hand if you relish a challenge and can live with an unstable system then go for it ;-)
