Updated and Optimized Ubuntu Free Graphics Drivers
I could enable r600 llvm support but it will be enabled by default and since it's possibly buggy someone will complain. Best would be if mesa developers could make it disabled by default when compiled in and only enabled with an env variable. This way I could enable it and who want to try it could set the env var.
just updated my Ubuntu to 14.04 and refreshened my drivers from Oibaf PPA, now I only have sofware render at Unity.
I have a Dell XPS 13 Ultranotebook (intel 3rd gen CPU - HD 4000 graphics).
