    @pali: It took a little longer for me to reinstall 12.04 and test your ppa.
    It worked quite good, but ubuntu only has the old X-Server running (X.Org X Server 1.11.3 according to /var/log/Xorg.0.log).
    Therefore my problems remain the same:

    Code:
    [     3.770] (EE) AIGLX error: i965 exports no extensions (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so: undefined symbol: __driDriverExtensions)
    [     3.771] (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
    Could you add the X-Server itself in your ppa?
    This would help me, and most likely others with a Haswell processor, alot.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Is there such an updated repository for Debian Wheezy? I entered Pali's repository manually and many packages install, but some require llvm3.2, and Wheezy only has 3.1.

      • Hi. I have a Radeon HD3200 mobile (r600 family, RS780). At the open the default graphics drivers to heat up. Performance is average. It makes sense to add the repo iobaf? temperatures drop? performance how it is?

        • Llvm 3.4

          I am now providing llvm 3.4-rc2 packages in the PPA, with mesa built against it. Radeonsi users should now get OpenGL 3+ rather than 2.1. Please test.

          • Oibaf, what's your policy with non-upstream patches?

              What do you mean exactly? In the past I added some patches (e.g. NV_VDPAU_interop) or merged whole branches before they were merged. I can add something if it can be useful, it has low regression risk and and it isn't too intrusive.

                  Currently, I have kubuntu 13.10 and is pleasantly surprised by the improvement of performance.

                  ps: I have the default kernel. Do not hurt me change for example 3.13rc? I mean lower temperatures graphics. DPM is still medium terms.

                      it would be great to add that for intel drivers if possible. i really miss the vdpau deinterlacing methods in xmc since i switched to intel.
