It's looking like Fedora is ironing out the basics and 2d stuff on this and ubuntu will come in and iron out some of the 3d stuff. This is all going to be up and running probably in 5 months. 3d textures will probably be terrible for a while though. I keep searching all over the gallium and DRI pages and everything is getting knocked out pretty fast. I don't think I'll even mess with binary blobs on Fedora 12.
No announcement yet.
