    Well, I'm mainly talking about the performance regression from previous versions to a default Jaunty set-up.

    With the Tormod and radeon-rewrite PPAs, Compiz seems a bit faster, and glxgears shows a higher FPS (~800), but anything else that uses 3D is messed up, textures, or something like that, mainly unplayable.

    So I'm wondering if I use the Ubuntu X-Swat or the tormod PPAs without radeon-rewrite, will I have usable 3D without performance problems?
    My 3D seems to be ok at the moment, with the X-Swat repo builds of DRM and radeon, and the 2.6.29.4 kernel installed manually on Jaunty. I'm not using radeon-rewrite. I'm on an X1400 Mobility, so take it with a grain of salt if you are using other hardware.

    Tormod is a contributor to the X-Swat team as well, so you should see the good bits from his builds reflected there.

      Well, I tried it out, and it's like I expected, I disabled xorg-crackers and radeon-rewrite PPAs, added X-Swat updates, downgraded to latest, 3D is working properly, but very slowly (performance regression), but that's kinda expected seeing Ubuntu X-Swat does not provide an updated Mesa package :/

      Oh well, any one has an idea about how to fix this?

        If you see something not working with radeon-rewrite which works fine with the "classic" mesa, other components being the same, please report a bug as explained on the radeon-rewrite PPA page.

        BTW, we will update mesa in x-updates as soon as a stable update exists.

          Hmm, Well, I will be giving it another go.
          I already have the latest .30 kernel from Karmic, should I add the 3 repos mentioned, do an apt-get upgrade?

            No, you don't have to add any other repo.
