      • Anyone having problems with DRI_PRIME? I had a dual AMD graphics laptop (Evergreen + NI, SUMO + TURKS). I hadn't updated my system until today, and updated both mesa and the kernel updated... well, now DRI_PRIME doesn't work, but this doesn't seem to be a kernel problem. Could this be the cause?

        Are you using Unity? AFAIK, this is really common. Try resetting it (I don't know how to do it, I guess you would have to rename some dot folder or something).

          Yes, unity.
          I tried:
          1) reinstall\reset\replace Unity
          2) reisntall\reset unity-icons
          3) dpkg-reconfigure -f /org/compiz/
          4) remove compiz folders from Home directory

            • DRI3

              Hi,
              can anybody tell me how to get DRI3 on intel haswell, ubuntu 14.10 running? i found during some search that it is possible but nothing about how to.

              in xorg.log it only says that there is no dri3 module found.
              Code:
              EE) intel: Failed to load module "dri3" (module does not exist, 0)

              • What just happened with it? No graphics acceleration at all, getting:

                Code:
                adam@Adam-Desktop:~$ glxinfo | grep renderer
                libGL error: unable to load driver: r600_dri.so
                libGL error: driver pointer missing
                libGL error: failed to load driver: r600
                libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
                libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

                OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD CYPRESS
                and mesa package says build failure on the Launchpad page...

                  I disabled -mtune=generic, since it seems there is no progress on upstream bug. Please test and let me know if it is faster now.

                        Yeah use that as temporary workaround because it is better (not the best) for most users/apps, but it is not fixed - 32bit glretrace still shows the issue so i guess some other (lets hope minority ) 32bit apps out there will show the issue too .

                        I promised i will open a separete bug for that, but didn't have a time and actually just forgot about it

                                You might try doing the same for 64bit too , because i found that this also prevent unpredictable lockups
