Incorrect. Glamor works fine on 32-bit CPUs, and on 64-bit CPUs if you
force them to run 32-bit binaries. What it doesn't work on is some of
the GPUs that happen to be commonly attached to 32-bit CPUs. Which is

are (to put it politely) garbage. Though they claim to support fragment
shaders, the instruction limit of those shaders is far less than what
We knew this, though, which is why our (actually Debian's) patch to the

This way gen2 and gen3 still get native 2D and 3D acceleration.

That's just a bug in the intel driver, then. Can you be more specific?
