    evergreen-accel was merged to master like 9 days ago, so yes. You might want some beyond-edge kernel stuff which is not yet in the main tree or drm-next kernels offered by the Kernel Mainline PPA though.

      catalyst 10.10 and his worst flash performance in firefox4 makes me remove fglrx install kernel 2.6.36+xorg-edgers and now on Radeon/mesa :-)



      at the first start no bugs show to me... and the startup feels 1-2seconds faster.

      and my flash problem... yes radeon is faster on watching youporn vids in firefox4.

      But... in the first 10 minuts kde crashs and kdm restards..

      firefox4 save my text here...

      kde shows me drkonqi akonadi resource kills

      akonadi_ical_resource PID: 2445 signal: 6 (Aborted)

      ok i try to ignor that.

        Yep radeon (running evergreen 5850) crashed gdm/X for me when I had multiple flash vids open.

          You're probably hitting a known bug that's already fixed. Did you guys read the message above:

                i'm using kubuntu w/ xorg edgers on a hd5670 but i still get the software rasterizer.

                these are the versions of the relavant packages:

                kernel 2.6.36-rc8
                xserver 1.9.0.901+git20101005+server
                xserver-xorg-video-radeon 6.13.99+git20101017
                mesa 7.10.0+git20101015
                libdrm 2.4.22+git20101012

                any idea?

                  Try xvinfo first, if it doesn't list any adaptors then you don't have any acceleration at all and your xorg.log or dmesg may contain some clues. If you do have acceleration look at the output of LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo for clues why you get software rasterizer.

                    thanks. i just had to add my user to the 'video' group.

                    since this was a fresh kubuntu install i wonder if i should file a bug report about it.
