I have SLED 11 SP2 installed on my VAIO (VPCS131FM) and am using it for both work and personal. I'm trying to make it my daily driver (had RHEL on it previously) and the only thing holding me back is flash performance; given how well all other aspects work with the intel graphics, i was surprised to find that full-screen flash video performance is unusable. Works fine otherwise, anyone know of a fix? i apologize in advance if it's something already documented somewhere, i couldn't find a solution

SLED 11 SP2

Hi
Is hardware acceleration enabled?

Do you have a link to an example?

I'm not sure if hardware acceleration is enabled (posting from phone) I'll have to ge to get back to you on that. I haven't changed the settings, so whatever the default is should be how it's currently set. As for an example, anything on youtube; regardless of the selected quality, it plays smooth until you switch to full-screen, and performance severely degrades.

Hi
If you right-click on the flash and un-select the checkbox and try
that, else look at using html5 for youtube http://www.youtube.com/html5

What intel graphics, as root user run;


hwinfo --gfxcard

I have no issues here on this system with an i5 and Intel Arrandale GPU.

I tried disabling hardware acceleration like you suggested, but noticed no improvement. It's a little discouraging; flash ran smooth as could be on this same machine under RHEL :/

Here's the output from the command "hwinfo --gfxcard"... if there are any more suggestions to get this working right let me know, i'll try anything.

Hi
So the gfx card I have is the same, aside from being DELL.

So your internet connection is ok? Nothing else running in the
background?

Internet connection is good on this laptop, haven't had any issues with it (just issues with the desktop machine :/ )

And no, nothing running in the background

I saw on google that there is a common problem. For some users, uncheck hardware acceleration (as described above) solves the issue. For others, it seems that an update is necessary. Have you got the latest build (video driver and flash) ?
