      Hi oibaf,
      no the last version, at least the one available yesterday, crash my box (Xubuntu 12.04); the panel of Xfce was missing, the cursor was missing and the desktop was strangely "opaque"; I've purged your PPA and reverted intel driver with Ubuntu repos; at the moment I've installed these drivers https://launchpad.net/~glasen/+archive/intel-driver in order to be able to use SNA features (anyway even those works only with "export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" entry in .bashrc on my box)

      thx

      • when you use Ubuntu to select the gallium/non-gallium drivers as default? I prefer to compile a snapshot on my own, but basically a nice idea. How do you build the 32 bit mesa libs for a 64 bit system? Since llvm is forced i could not build em...

            It may be a regression, hopefully already fixed upstream. However currently mesa can't properly build, so you'll have to wait to see if it's fixed.

              Seems like you're running a 32-bit Windows program in Wine. You would need the 32-bit version of the package as well, which you can see in the repository as :i386.

              • Intel drivers

                I just installed your ppa on my Ubuntu 12.10 which is installed on ASUS K53E laptop that comes with 2nd gen i5 and Intel HD3000 video. Earlier on I had the stock drivers and had SNA enabled via xorg. I updated to your driver via PPA and before that I removed the xorg so as not to cause any conflict. However after upgrading and rebooting, I noticed that SNA was not activated and I had to resort to creating the xorg to get SNA enabled. While this is fine, the xorg ppa intel drivers don't seem to need the xorg hack as they come with SNA enabled by default.

                  Yes, I am just providing the -intel default here, no SNA forcing.

                    Thank you, so I presume its safe to enable it via xorg, if so how can we disable vsync to get glxgears to do more than 60fps?

                    • I think you can just disable GLXVBlank in xorg.conf (Option "GLXVBlank" "False"), which is probably in the Device section.

                          You can disable it with .drirc file in your home
                          <driconf>
                          <device screen="0" driver="dri2">
                          <application name="Default">
                          <option name="vblank_mode" value="0" />
                          </application>
                          </device>
                          </driconf>

                          Consider vblank_mode option 0 or 1 disable vblank, 2 or 3 enable it; you need to reboot after the configuration of .drirc file.

                            Thanks.

                            Will give this a try, so far xorg edit seems to be holding.

                            • Any chance for this ppa to host the latest released intel-vaapi driver 1.19, it has many improvements over the one thats included in Ubuntu 12.10, that one is version 1.17

                              Thanks.

                                I can easily backport 1.19 as soon as it's in Debian, currently still at 1.17: http://packages.debian.org/source/si...l-vaapi-driver

                                If you care you may ask the Debian maintainer to update to 1.19.
