GLSL using mesa

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I want to write some shaders on my laptop, but I only have a 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device. Does anybody know if mesa is capable of handling glsl or is there another possibility to test glsl shaders? Thanks in advance. David

I'd say it's very unlikely--that intel graphics device does not have opengl support beyond v1.1, I think. So that would mean no vertex shaders, let alone fragment shaders.

I don't know if mesa can do shaders in software (it's possible--NV have a tool called NVemulate for emulating shaders in software), but it would probably be really really slow. If you don't want real-time shading you could try it out by checking their website or documentation.
