Settings for improving poor 3D performance of intel 945GM

Failed to ack TLB invalidate...", here is one of the screenshots I took when the errors occurred: But I was not surprised at all, because I knew there were problems with the HP 520, at least with this model of HP 520.

Gnome-do doesn't show application items

Gnome-do doesn't show application items on my Gentoo/Gnome 2.26, but 0.8.0 does, the following screenshot shows 0.8.0 is listing "Terminal" related items when I type "ter" in gnome-do, and the first one is the one I want: Gnome Terminal: The problem with my gnome-do is: it doesn't list anything of my application items(The ones sits in Gnome's Applications menu), I think this functionality is of gnome-do itself.
