154 <para>
155 The SandyBridge New Acceleration (SNA) code is intended to replace the
156 old UXA (UMA Acceleration Architecture), but it is a large body of code
157 and may cause problems. However, the version of the code in the
158 version control system listed above has been tested successfully with
159 both SNA and UXA capabilities.
160 </para>
161
162 <para>
163 To work around this problem, as well as enabling support for UXA, it is
164 necessary to force UXA to be used by creating a configuration file. If
165 this problem applies to you, create the following file as the
166 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user and modify it as
167 needed:
