    I believe the actual mesa/mesa R5xx 3D support is still off in a branch, so it would not be in 7.03.
    Right, for git mesa master or 7.0.3, R5xx 3D is not supported, but we can use Xv just fine.

      Yep. Xv only uses code from the X driver and drm, not from mesa.

        Is 3D supposed to work with Radeon on R500? I have an x1400. I only get software libGL support. I have the latest radeon from git as of today, and mesa + drm from two days ago. Here's some diagnostics:

        elenius@elenius-laptop:~$ dmesg | grep drm
        [ 45.782753] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
        [ 45.857535] [drm] Initialized radeon 1.28.0 20060524 on minor 0
        [ 47.478703] [drm] Setting GART location based on new memory map

        [ 47.480143] [drm] writeback test succeeded in 2 usecs
        elenius@elenius-laptop:~$ grep -i "Direct rendering" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

          Git masters for radeon and drm are good for R5xx 3D, but you still need to get mesa/mesa from airlied's R500 branch :

          http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~airlied...og/?h=r500test

          You might still have to add your chip ID in order to be recognized -- Dave only put a couple of R5xx IDs in the code himself.

            How does one go about checking out that mesa version? I ran 'git clone git://cgit.freedesktop.org/~airlied/mesa', but git-log in the newly created mesa directory doesn't show any updates since April of 2007, so I'm assuming I have to checkout a particular branch, correct?

              Yes, I believe you need the "r500test" branch.

                Maybe I just don't know git well enough... I thought 'git-checkout r500test' would be enough, but that gives me:

                error: pathspec 'r500test' did not match any file(s) known to git.
                Did you forget to 'git add'?

                  I certainly don't know git well enough either... yet.

                  Does the following (Michael's IRC advice to someone else trying to do the same) help ?

                  "michaellarabel: git-clone the airlied branch and then change directories to drm or mesa and then do: git-checkout -b r500test origin/r500test"

                    That did it :-) Thanks! I owe you a beer next time you're in southern NJ.

                      Heh, I may have to wait a bit to try again. The mesa driver builds, but GL apps fail with:

                      libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs.
                      libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs.
                      libGL error: InitDriver failed
                      libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
                      glxgears: Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual.

                      So I figured that I might need to build an x server from around the same time as the last commit to the r500 branch (March 21st), so I reset to a commit from the 20th, but that fails to build :-)
