    Phoronix: Radeon "R600g" Gallium3D Driver Merged To Master

    Those owners of ATI Radeon HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series (R600/700) graphics cards not only have a reason to celebrate today over the voltage adjustment support to improve their GPU power management, but there's another reason too. The Radeon R600 Gallium3D driver known as "R600g" has been merged to Mesa's mainline "master" code-base...

      Hopefully the xorg-edgers gallium PPA will enable r600g soon, even though it's in an early state.

          Did you Ubuntu folks not read the article? It's not ready for folk to use yet! The only reason I'm guessing it's been merged is to help it keep up with the churn that happens to Gallium everyday

            No need for namecalling. It doesn't make your point more valid and we don't appreciate it.

            And yes they should read it better.

              Calling people who use Ubuntu, Ubuntu folk isn't name calling.

              I'm pretty sure that only Ubuntu uses the term PPA for non-official repositories so I feel my comments were accurate. No one asked for something to be added to RPM fusion, Debian unstable, Mandivia cooker or a gentoo overlay.

              Whether or not you appreciate having your fellow Ubuntu users called out on bazaar (get it?) requests doesn't mean I wasn't right in doing so

                Are you suggesting that Ubuntu folk is an offense?

                  So what if it's not ready? Has that ever stopped someone from using something? I don't see why the xorg-edgers ppa wouldn't consider offering a build of the driver in it's current state just for testing purposes.

                    I suspect that for now the driver isn't going to render anything. Check this commit. Shader compiler is too unstable, I guess.
