> Theoretically... however I don't think that is the case. To change the
driver you will have to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf, Look for section
“Device” it should look more or less like this:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Generic Video Card"
  Driver "nvidia"

Now where you have “nvidia” (in yours xorg.conf this will say something
different... intel maybe?) change it to “vesa” so it looks like this:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Generic Video Card"
  Driver "vesa"

Save and restart xserver (sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart (kdm if you are using
kubuntu)). I think Intel drivers use DRI+mesa for direct rendering so
setting driver to vesa should switch you to indirect mesa rendering. Note:
this will be slow as hell, this is for testing only. When you are done
testing simply change back “driver” to what was there earlier and restart
