145 <title>Working around problems with the Intel driver</title>

147 <para>
148 The SandyBridge New Acceleration (SNA) code is intended to replace the
149 old UXA (UMA Acceleration Architecture), but it is a large body of code
150 and sometimes causes problems. In particular, when a system is built
151 with gcc-5 and kernel headers from linux-4.0, trying to run this driver
152 using SNA has been known to segfault on some of the supported chips.
153 However, the version of the code in the version control system listed
154 above has been tested successfully with both SNA and UXA capabilities.
155 </para>
156
157 <para>
158 To work around this problem, as well as enabling support for UXA, it is
159 necessary to force UXA to be used by creating a configuration file. If
160 this problem applies to you, create the following file as the
