  • could someone please point out the steps or a link to that needed on a gentoo-system with a 2.6.35-kernel (or even 2.6.36-rc* kernel if that's needed)

    to get it working - I mean the libs and programs, including the modifications to the ebuilds for the evergreen-accel

    fglrx is getting better but still messed up in several areas

    many thanks in advance

    • you should use .36, .35 contains a few bugs that you'd otherwise have to manually patch.

      gentoo: use the x11 overlay for mesa-9999 ebuild

        • Anyone still getting random crashes with 2d accel?
          I've got 2.6.36-rc6, along with git versions mesa and xf86-video-ati.
          Are there some patches for Evergreen that didn't make it into 2.6.36-rc6 that help with stability?

          • I am, yeah. The stabillity is *much* better now (rc5, latest git everything else) than it was a few RCs ago. But I do still get some X crashes. Now at least, it's hours before it crashes rather than minutes. Oddly, they nearly aleays occur for me while dragging a scrollbar (or, 'holding on' to a scrollbar). Anyone else get that?

              Agreed, though I also get crashes every once in a while when resizing windows.

              • There's an open bug about that.

                https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30188

                Not sure if you are seeing the same thing, might want to file a separate bug otherwise.

                • Thanks monraaf. That sounds exactly like what I'm seeing.
