    Dave just merged the r500-support branch into mesa git master, so it should be much easier to get up and running now.

      it fails to compile:

      Code:
      /src/egl/main -I../../../../../src/egl/drivers/dri -I/usr/include/drm    -O2 -march=i686 -pipe -fno-ivopts -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -std=c99 -ffast-math -fno-strict-aliasing  -fPIC   -D_POSIX_SOURCE -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199309L -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_SVID_SOURCE -D_GNU_SOURCE -DPTHREADS -DHAVE_POSIX_MEMALIGN -DUSE_XCB -DUSE_EXTERNAL_DXTN_LIB=1 -DIN_DRI_DRIVER -DGLX_INDIRECT_RENDERING -DHAVE_ALIAS -DGLX_DIRECT_RENDERING -DRADEON_COMMON=0 radeon_state.c -o radeon_state.o
      radeon_screen.c: In function ‘radeonCreateScreen’:
      radeon_screen.c:848: error: ‘RADEON_PARAM_NUM_GB_PIPES’ undeclared (first use in this function)
      radeon_screen.c:848: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
      radeon_screen.c:848: error: for each function it appears in.)
      gmake[5]: *** [radeon_screen.o] Error 1
      gmake[5]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
      EDIT: sorry!!! :] I reemerged libdrm and x11-drm and it works!!!

        agd5f, is that the change that was just being discussed on IRC re: fixing the way # of pipes was being determined ?

          We will be delivering benchmarks comparing the Radeon X1000 performance using the open-source 3D driver to the fglrx driver in the coming days with different graphics cards and we will compare its performance to the earlier R400 parts. If you have any other requests, let us know in the Phoronix Forums.
          Can you check Blender out, to see if there are any issues/artifacts? I have never personally used ATi myself*, but if these developments continue (it appears so), my next GPU will very likely be from them. It is just that many Blender users complain about poor OpenGL performance with ATi, and hopefully they are gone with these free drivers!

          Love this site, btw

          *I have worked professionally with ATi FireGL cards on Linux, used as GPU rendernodes. It was not a pleasant experience...

            Yes. We now setup and determine number of pipes in the drm and then use that in mesa and the ddx if available.

              Exciting times we live in. I can't wait to buy my R700 or rv770. Open source 3d drivers are a big driver in what manufacturer I plan on choosing next.

                You need to have AIGLX enabled (and loaded all fine) to get 3D running.

                  I need help getting 3d working with my M54 card.
                  I run gentoo amd64.
                  I've installed mesa, libdrm, x11-drm from today's git.

                  Xorg.0.log: http://rafb.net/p/qgLkAr95.html
                  dmesg | grep drm: http://rafb.net/p/klODwr39.html
                  glxinfo: http://rafb.net/p/GLAnp732.html
                  xorg.conf: http://rafb.net/p/1proXt36.html

                  This happens with radeonHD and ati.. glxinfo always shows no 3d.
                  Unfortunately "LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo" shows exactly the same as glxinfo (I asked on the mesa3d-users mailing list, but no answer).

                  Thanks

                    Looks like you installed software mesa or at least that's what's getting picked up by the apps.
