  • Mesa still can't properly build with current configuration. But we are working on it, see e.g. my last bug I filed just today: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53962 . Hopefully a package should be ready soon (but I am busy next week, so not at least for 10 days).

    What do you mean with SNC? If you mean SNA I think you should force it in the xorg.conf file, see the intel man page (can't post more detail now, posting from a mobile). Edit: see the SNA note in NEWS of 2.20.0.

      Yes I mean SNA (sorry for the mistake)... I'll wait for every news you have to issue. It would be gratefull if mesa could be make possible GPU acceleration on flashplayer videos (youtube); my HD3850 on XP could be used on flv only by 9.11 catalyst drivers.

      • I think it's the other way round... flash doesn't enable GPU acceleration when it detects that it's running on mesa.

          Flash has been constant pain on Linux, but video acceleration under Flash, for example, is disabled even with Nvidia binary blob. Talk about "high quality" from Adobe!

          On youtube and anywhere else, use HTML5. If its broken there, help fixing it by reporting to the website and at browser bugtracker.

          From other side, there was some talk about finding the most-working flash version here on phoronix - which was eventually found; pity, that can't find it now...

          And as of flash games legacy, use free flash implementation, like Gnash or Lightspark.

          Flash was and is a zombie (now even more). Don't cure zombies!

            It's not much better on Windows. I've read (at least with AMD Radeons) if you view hardware accelerated Flash, your GPU clocks are throttled by 50% (someone mentioned this on a Newegg review of a card; I've never bothered to test it since I don't watch YouTube and play games simultaneously, but it wouldn't surprise me.)

            • Updated MESA packages

              Finally all the mesa build issues are fixed now. Updated mesa packages are building now.

                As reported by someone there is a link problem with the classic drivers (r200 radeon i915 i965) so you may want to revert to mesa ubuntu packages if you use any of them. Hopefully it will be fixed in some way.

                  Fixed in the updated packages.

                  • Mesa config

                    Hi,

                    Can you share what arguments you use for ./configure ? Thanks.

                        All the source are available in the PPA, see the PPA page for how to download them. The easiest way to see the configure arguments see the various build log, e.g. https://launchpadlibrarian.net/11465...UILDING.txt.gz

                        • I have enabled again the LLVM compiler on r600. See here for more info:

                          • I thought I posted before, but maybe it didn't go through?

                            After yesterday's updated, OpenGL stopped working, so Gnome-shell gave me a garbled screen of corruption(as did Gnome Classic with effects).

                            I seem to be affected by this bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55217

                            Downgrading libgl1-mesa-dri to the official repository's version solved the problem, which is lucky because the other packages I tried to downgrade wanted to remove half my system.

                            Hopefully they get this figured out soon.

                            • Last driver version is broken.

                              On last version of driver I'm getting nasty GPU lockups:

                              [ 4092.978304] radeon 0000:01:00.0: GPU lockup (waiting for 0x00000000000dfadf)
                              It locks up with the very same error all the time in certain situation (3d scene in game). Earlier version had no such issues. Message about GPU lockup repeats itself all the time - GPU recovery fails and no picture appears on display as the result. The only way to fix it is a reboot.

                              Any hints what "failed to get a new IB (-35)" means?
