    Install the right mesa? Did you build from source? Install packages? If you installed from pacakges, you'll need the mesa/dri/gl package (name varies depending on distro).

      I did install mesa from sources, git master...
      But not manually, with a gentoo ebuild: maybe there's something wrong with it. I will try to get more info.
      thanks

        When you build mesa, you want the dri build target. I'm not sure how gentoo does it.

          ok, so I manually installed mesa from sources.
          It installed stuff in /usr/local/lib, so I had to manually copy it to /usr/lib/.

          Now glxinfo gives:

          $ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
          name of display: :0.0
          libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 4.3.0 r300 (screen 0)

            slacker, you should use

            ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
            or
            ./configure --prefix=/usr

            in the future, so that it installs in the correct directory.

              I tried that.. Same error as above:
              Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual
              Is there a way to "make uninstall" ?

                Did this code make it into Mesa 7.1 RC1?

                    I think the merge happened about 8 hours after RC1 was created, but if there is a subsequent RC for 7.1 the R5xx support should be picked up.

                    The changes are confined to the drivers/dri/r300 folder so no risk to the rest of Mesa.

                      me too

                      I am currently using Fedora 7 with the proprietary ATI driver. I want to switch in the next month or so to F9. It would be very nice to have a step by step guide to get a decent free driver up and running.
