    Lot of errors with " __" symbols until fallback to software non acelerated.
    err, NO!

    here are two different kind of issue:
    1. one have problems that their moduls are not being loaded.
    2. others have their moduls laoded correctly but the opengl feautres are not what we expected to be in mesa 10

    the latter one is what me and others observed and as far as i saw this is the most often case here, snice oibaf updated to mesa 10.

    ps. hardware accel works fine so far btw.

      • Not sure, but this seems to suggest that the xserver needs some backported patches to cope with the latest mesa 10 changes?

          • I disabled Ubuntu MIR on Intel maybe it broke. Try the current packages.

            If that still doesn't fix your problem please try the xorg-server package from here: https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/test/ I backported the megadriver patch some days ago but it only build on x86-64, failing on i386.

              if that was ment to fix the wrong opengl version then it didn't worked. though, i didn't tried the new xorg-server packages you mentioned.

              i wonder if there is anybody having opengl 3.2 with intel hd grahics?

              • due to the suggestion of matst88 (http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...089#post369089) i wanted to try out your xserver test version and added your repository from above.

                it can't be installed on ubuntu saucy due to broken/missing dependencies:

                  This is because xserver-common is a common package built on i386 but also used on amd64, and the i386 version failed to build so the package is not available anywhere. Please file a request to Ubuntu asking to patch xorg to backport that patch that is useful to anyone trying mesa 10 https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...erver/+filebug.

                  Or wait me for fixing some way the package building on i386, but don't expect it anytime soon .

                    • Just updated mesa (atm it was updated to commit 110009302bddb4c42a5b3ed5ca451d6bb50a06a0 in your ppa)

                      I'm curious, how come you removed the oibaf tag in glxinfo OpenGL version string? Not complaining, just surprised that you decided to remove it and want to know the reason for doing so.

                      Code:
                      a-young@Akaigo-Arc:~$  glxinfo | grep Open
                      OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
                      OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD CEDAR
                      OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.0.0-devel
                      OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40
                      OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
                      OpenGL core profile extensions:
                      OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.0.0-devel
                      OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
                      OpenGL context flags: (none)
                      OpenGL extensions:

                      • Hi guys! I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and have some issue: i have to run all applications (well, ok, games) with DRI_PRIME=1 option. And i have no mouse cursor in this case. No any single game with cursor. And w\o this option everything is fine (except performance, of course). So, the question is: any solution to make a cursor appear?

                        • Updates

                          I uploaded a xorg version which should fix the Intel issues and hopefully enable OpenGL 3.3, please test.

                          Also I disabled updating packages for 12.04 and 12.10, and I'll also remove all the packages on the PPA soon.

                          • Thanks Oibaf, I'll give it a go this evening.
                            I'll let you know how it goes.
                            Thanks for the support !

                                Wait, why would you disable updates for 12.04 LTS and 12.10 when they're not EOL until for another good 5-8 months?

                                Can you please not drop support for these two ubuntu releases just yet?
