162 <para>
163 The SandyBridge New Acceleration (SNA) code is intended to replace the
164 old UXA (UMA Acceleration Architecture), but it is a large body of code
165 and may cause problems. However, the version of the code in the
166 version control system listed above has been tested successfully with
167 both SNA and UXA capabilities.
168 </para>
169
170 <para>
171 To work around this problem, as well as enabling support for UXA, it is
172 necessary to force UXA to be used by creating a configuration file. If
173 this problem applies to you, create the following file as the
174 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user and modify it as
175 needed:
