    The actual version of xserver-xorg-core in experimental is
    2: and work without problem with mesa 7.1 final.
    Indeed, I just checked on this site and it says 2: as the newest version.

    But, I can not get this package! Only 2:

    Would you mind to share your experimental repositories with us?

    Thanks for reading.

      Nevermind, I just noticed that there is no 2: package to amd64 SID.

      Architecture Version Package Size Installed Size Files

      amd64 2: 2,541.9 kB 5624 kB no current information

      i386 2: 2,374.2 kB 5036 kB no current information

        On R500 use the radeon (git master), NOT the radeonhd driver.
