Both of these games were fine on Ubuntu 9.04 using the Xorg-edgers packages from September or so).
      Yo Frankie is a known problem with Mesa, file bugs for the rest of them. git-bisect is both easy and simple to use

        I'm a little disappointed that Poulsbo chipset have hardware acceleration fo video decoding available right now although the driver is closed source, whereas GM45 chipset is fully open source with all the documentation necessary and it is still not available (just MPEG2 which I really don't need).
        No idea, I would also very much want to know what the plans are.

        At least from looking at the Windows side, this chip really seems to be targeted at video decoding, so it's a bit surprising that it's taken so long.

          The only info I found is on the Intel-gfx mailing list:

          Hi,

          Do you plan to support H264 and VC1 decoding anytime soon on GM45?

          Thanks.

          Yes, we do have plan for that.

          Thanks

            Are something easier methods than git-bitsec to eliminate this bugs?

              Having a bisect ready for a regression is usually the best way to make sure bugs are fixed quickly (second only to submitting a patch of course), but all bug reports are valuable.

              Mesa in general seem to suffer a lot from having too few users willing to try the latest stuff and report problems.

                Don't worry, there's already a bug open for Sauerbraten (and it's apparently fixed with bleeding-edge kernel and Intel drivers), I just wanted to share my experiences.
