I’m trying to identify the version of opengl ES that my computer currently supports (?) but I’m confused by the output of glxinfo:
[...] Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center (0x8086) Device: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GM (0x27a2) Version: 17.0.7 Accelerated: yes Video memory: 192MB Unified memory: yes Preferred profile: compat (0x2) Max core profile version: 0.0 Max compat profile version: 1.4 Max GLES1 profile version: 1.1 Max GLES profile version: 2.0 OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GM OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 17.0.7 [...] OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 2.0 Mesa 17.0.7 OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 1.0.16 [...]
Does my graphic chip really supports OpenGL ES 2.0 while only supporting OpenGL 1.4?
Is there a place where every line of glxinfo output is explained?
From my understanding my graphic chip only has partial support of features, therefore… I’m confused :doh:
Any advice on making things clear will be apreciated!
