Don't forget Mesa 7.6.1:

http://www.mesa3d.org/relnotes-7.6.1.html

Mainly a bug fix release, but it does add a new driver for Radeon r600/r700 cards, so good news for ATI fans!

BTW: that means new support for the Radeon HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series. Still wating for AMD to release code for the Evergreen (Radeon HD 5000) cards...

After building X with the new wget files. I seen that xf86-video-intel-2.10.0 needs updated libdrm.

: DRM... configure: error: Package requirements (libdrm >= 2.4.16) were not met:

Checked libdrm latest is 2.4.18.

I didn't check to see if Mesa was updated in lastest blfs-svn. I included 7.6.1 on my lfs6.6rc1 build last week. I'll see if that runs into any issues with this new X build.

Mesa-7.6.1 (lib,glut,demos) compiled fine with libdrm-2.4.18.

glxinfo and gears work.

Still have: IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 0 using my Radeon 4850. :(.

Finally got Radeon working with newest kernel 2.6.33, libdrm-2.4.18, Xorg-server-1.7.4, and Mesa-7.6.1.

Important kernel config parts: CONFIG_DRM_RADEON=m CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS=y CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y # CONFIG_FB_RADEON is not set

My first reboot into this kernel, lost FB bootup had to select mode=0 ie 80x24. It looks like the kernel hangs at loading the various 770*.bin files but just wait and it will finally finish booting. It also changes the mode from 80x24 to normal FB bootup after it finally loads all the *.bin files.

ringlis [ ~ ]$ glxinfo name of display: :0.0 display: :0 screen: 0 direct rendering: Yes server glx vendor string: SGI server glx version string: 1.2 server glx extensions:

GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method, GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe, GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_pbuffer, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer

client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI client glx version string: 1.4

Notice no IRQs not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2.0 :), and direct rendering = yes.

glxgears drops from 3300 fps to 240's but its a start. Still have slight border tearing when dragging windows around the desktop.

Have fun
