    Hi,

    the last version of your intel PPA really boost the performances but give me this error in glxinfo

    X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
    Serial number of failed request: 22
    Current serial number in output stream: 25
    ...
    Hi again,
    found a workaround; putting this value:
    Code:
    export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
    on .bashrc file, saving and reboot, seems that fix the issue.

    • You are right, there was a package left over after purging xorg-edgers, I had to downgrade it manually and all is fine now.

      • Yu may want to try the packages I just uploaded, if it still doesn't work you should file a bug with mesa as reported in the first post.

          The problem is still there; new packages without "export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" string in .bashrc I get executing glxinfo:

          name of display: :0.0
          X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
          Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)

          Serial number of failed request: 22
          Current serial number in output stream: 25

          I try to fill the bug in Mesa

          thx

            You may also want to try to purge the PPA (see Revert to original drivers at https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers/ this should always be done before upgrading to a newer Ubuntu) and reinstall it.

                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...

                    Can you post the output of
                    Code:
                    dpkg -l | grep txc

                      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.
