Indeed. Sadly, the *buntus won't see r600/r700 OpenGL until NEXT APRIL when "Karmic Koala" comes out.
So it should come on 29th of October.
about my last question, I asked because I see since a few weeks something that looks like the new drm code.
black@saturn:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep r600
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/dri/r600_dri.so
black@saturn:~$ glxinfo | grep Mesa
IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 16
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RV740 94B3) 20090101 TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.6-devel
I dont know whats missing to get this work but I think itīs not the dri version?
Itīs not software-rendering anymore but the hardware 3d (glxgears) does not work yet at least here (hd4770).
I hope they fix it soon, but I think they will till karmic release.
