    Thank you for your work providing this ppa.

    With ATI 4200 HD on a M3A785GMH/128M mainboard and Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, libg3dvl-mesa installed, I notice random pop-outs to the right or underneath (depending on the video) when I watch flash videos with hardware-acceleration enabled in the flash control panel. This happens embedded, windowed on a youtube page and fullscreen as well. When I disable the acceleration the video stays in its aspect-ratio, but is barely watchable in fullscreen (makes sense). When enabled, it takes a few seconds for the acceleration to kick in watching fullscreen videos, the difference is positively huge but again barely watchable with these random pop-outs. Is this something you can work on, or provide a solution for?

    Thanks!

    • I am having some issues with the Champions of Regnum Game....

      I am using Linux Mint 15 and out of the box everything was working fine... but you know as a linux user wanted to have the latest drivers ...

      So I first have installed the latest xorg/edgers/ppa ati graphic drivers , every game is running ok + playonlinux except Champions of Regnum which it doesnt display any characters in game , it displays them as invisble chars ><

      I have removed the xord/edgers ppa and installed oibaf's ppa but the same thing as xorg edgers......

      I have an ATI HIS 5970x2 2GB DDR5

      Any solution to this?

      • Hmm? Binutils update? From this repo? Why?

        Hi! It has come to my attention that this repo attempts to provide newer Binutils - version 2.23.52.20130611-1ubuntu2~r~gd

        Binutils are system-wide thing, it don't have to be touched without reasons as it could be used by other people to build some software. I have no idea why "uptated drivers" should anyhow mess with this part of system. Are there any good reasons to do so? Basically, attempt to update such packages seems to be BAD idea unless there is some uber-reason to do so. And if there is such reason, you should put a BIG RED WARNING about this behavior, IMHO.

        • Raring mesa packages now built with LLVM 3.3

          I uploaded new raring mesa packages now built using LLVM 3.3. Quantal and precise still use LLVM 3.2 and I plan to remove them someday.

          Updated binutils (just a straight backport from saucy) is needed to build llvm 3.3 (also backported from debian), see here.

            • Problem updating drivers

              Hi,
              i'm trying to update the drivers for my Intel HD 4000, as the external monitor on my laptop doesn't work properly (I'm only allowed 1024x768 or 800x600 resolutions).

              I followed this instructions in this post:
              sudo add-apt-repository ppaibaf/graphics-drivers
              sudo apt-get update
              sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
              However, it doesn't seem to have done anything, as "glxinfo | grep OpenGL" gave the same results before and after.
              ~$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
              OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
              OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile
              OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.0.3
              OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
              OpenGL extensions:
              Am I missing something?

                  You are using quantal? You still appears to be using mesa 9.0.3 which is quantal version and not the PPA one. Check you PPA configuration.

                    Thanks for the reply. I'm new to Ubuntu - can you tell me where to look for my PPA config?

                      It "works" since at least a year ago, but with really slow performance.
