  • OpenCL is far from usable in the current stage.

    • oibaf, think you can add glxinfo (in mesa demos) to create core contexts to this PPA?
      That would be pretty handy.

        I backported it already in raring (and there is by default in saucy), the package doesn't build on older Ubuntu IIRC, which I'll drop soon anyway.

          Ah, okay. Hope you won't drop 12.10 from this PPA, because that's what I'm using :b

            Why are you still using it? It's not even a LTS release, you should upgrade .

              Yeah I should upgrade sometime, but not ready just yet. I'm not really in a hurry to upgrade because 12.10 still has support 'til April 2014 iirc.

                12.04 is LTS, so you can downgrade.

                • vdpau issues

                  Hello!

                  I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 with Radeon HD 4650 AGP video card, and i'm having issues with VDPAU. I installed every neccessary package from oibaf's PPA, and the VDPAU playback is working in mplayer, but occasionally i get artifacts and flickering, if i set it to fullscreen, the artifacts are more frequent. I'm experiencing the same with youtube videos with accelerated decoding. I tried multiple kernels, 3.11.0, 3.11.6 3.12-rc6, now 3.12-rc7 but no difference.

                  Any ideas?
                  Thanks!

                    ah alright. I take your word. Will have to install fglrx now .. will sideload another partition for opencl with ubuntu 12.04 and 13.11...

                    Btw, why is it that chrome doesnt use hw acceleration with radeon driver?? I thought it would be perfectly stable by now with radeon hw accel.

                    • Is mesa going to be built for 13.10 (saucy) soon or is there still work to be done before it can be built?

                      • Does sound work through HDMI with these drivers? I have these on Mint 15 with a Radeon 5550 and don't hear anything.

                          Works just fine for me; you might need to add:
                          Code:
                          radeon.audio=1
                          to GRUB.
                          Edit the /etc/default/grub file and add the parameter to the line:

                          Code:
                          GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash "
                          so it would look like this
                          Code:
                          GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash radeon.audio=1"
                          Run sudo update-grub then reboot.

                            I have the package in this test PPA. If you can confirm it's OK I'll push it in the main PPA.

                              did you build it with the default llvm from saucy? I did a test build with llvm-3.4 here, only needs a little configure.ac patch.

                                Please don't drop support for 12.04. A lot of us are still holding out the upgrade until 14.04 gets released and your PPA is pretty much the only easy and considerably safe access we have to the current graphics stack. So if it's technically feasible, please do wait until the next LTS release to drop 12.04 support.
