mesa 20

Q:
Does the software work with (e.g.) Ubuntu?
If yes, which driver/mesa is used?

Intel HD Graphics 520 driver with OpenGL support

The new environment variable seems to work but the software is not working anymore. The program wont start? - :( Do you know if I can check something? Nope, that was the only "easy fix" to try that i am aware of. Problem is the program uses the wrong profile (compatibility profile not core profile)...

Intel HD Graphics 520 driver with OpenGL support

export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5

If the problem is solved, store this
for the user in ~/.bashrc or system wide in /etc/profile
If saving changes is not sufficient, use rootcopy.

Porteus very slow after clean install on

Hi vanAuss I prefer an ext2 filesystem on (usb) flash drives. And also to point directly to the device, because sdXN as an identifier is not static. It depends on how many devices are plugged-in. The UUID is uniq. Example My usb-drive/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg contains this: APPEND from=UUID:97040ed...
