Tried it - no change.
I've encountered a strange clue, though. I looked at the differences in
glxinfo output between the Fedora and mainline 38-rc8 kernels; of most
interest, perhaps, is this. The Fedora kernel tells me:
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Q35 GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.10-devel
Mainline kernel tells me this:
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10-devel

xdriinfo just tells me "i915" either way. No user space changes between
I'm trying to learn quickly about how all this stuff works, but, if
anybody has any ideas that might help me learn even quicker, I'd be most
