Ubuntu GPU Accellerated Graphics

Post by Nanook » Mon Aug 20, 2018 5:32 pm

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 on a Mac Pro 1,1. I've been running Ubuntu on this machine since I bought it used in 2012. The machine is a 2005 vintage machine. Nvidia stopped supporting the drivers for Linux for this old 7300GT video card in 2017. I thought I was going to suffer worse performance going to Linux nouveau drivers but they got GPU accelerated graphics working in them so this machine now is able to use a GPU accelerated Window manager and I an have all the cool effects. Pretty cool to see this ancient hardware do the cool stuff.
