      it seems that it has no effect.

        Why do you want to do that?

          security control.

          as i am not a hardcore X-org developer, i do not know whether it is possible for background daemon to access DRI

          So to be safe, i want to ensure no access.

          Section "DRI"
          Group "video"
          Mode 0660
          EndSection

            • Thank you!

              Thank you for these packages I was looking for packages with patent-covered features (in Europe, or at least in Italy, there aren't legal problems with them) since months. On my AMD Radeon 6570 there aren't problems currently, in my free time I will try to do some tests (even on other GPUs, I have got also a couple of Intel GPUs and one or two nVidia GPUs).

                • 12.04 mesa packages

                  Mesa packages for Ubuntu 12.04 are ready, I'll push them once the i965 driver is fixed to properly build due to recent build changes.

                    Building a driver twice with different patches it's not easy, hopefully tiling patches will be merged soon, while hiz is too experimantal and probably doesn't apply since the patches are quite old.
