  • As of today My AGP x1600pro (512MB) is still having issues

    I booted with no argument at all or radeon.agpmode=4 or radeon.agpmode=8 and the results are the same.

    The thing is Saturday was working..

    $ glxinfo | egrep Gallium
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on softpipe

    My AGP card is being recognized as a PCIe.

    No compiz love for me.

    Any ideas?

        I did a couple of updates from xorg-edgers ppa. And yesterday I installed Wine.. but i never even executed it.

        When I booted today I noticed that compiz was gone.. and here I am

        • I tried to use latest PPA date 04302010 for the gallium, the screen gets corrupted whenever I open a menu. I had to revert to classic mesa driver to get to stable. I tried with latest Kernel .34rc6 and ubuntu official kernel.

          • There is a regression in higher levels of Mesa, all gallium drivers are affected by this, people are working on a fix.

            • I'm assuming that's the reason my display is garbled after the last update?

The way it works here is a bit different than the radeon gallium PPA: The normal libgl1-mesa-dri contains only the classic mesa drivers. The libgl1-mesa-dri-gallium is an extra, optional package with gallium drivers. The libGL search path is set up so that the gallium drivers are loaded if the -gallium package is installed (Robert's clever idea).

                Note that the -gallium package in xorg-edgers also ship nouveau and intel gallium drivers.
                It would be nice to compile swrastg with llvm support. It needs the --enable-gallium-llvm configure flag and added Build-Depends on libffi-dev and llvm.
                I tested it on my Core Duo and found no regression wrt to classic swrastg, and it is indeed a *lot* faster, as noticed by phoronix articles:

                  I had the same, back to classic.

                  • It might be even the reason llvmpipe renders garbage as is in this article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=ODIxMw

                    That's the usual price for testing non-stable branches.

                      Is there a bug report, where we can track it and see when a fix is available?

                      Thanks.

                        • Thanks,

                          I assume next mesa build will have the fix. I will try the -gallium pack later tonight.

                          • I tried latest -gallium pack, it is not a full screen corruption, however, the screen is still showing corruption artifacts.

                            May I ask, gallium is still at v0.4, is there a time frame for official v1.0 release?

                            • I don't think the version really matters, it's just a number, it doesn't mean anything.

                              • oh yay Gaussian Blur finally works on Compiz with r300g. I wanna hump whoever is responsible for that. :P
