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