    Hi, great stuff oibaf!

    I cannot get llvmpipe/swrast going on an amazon virtual machine - that in itself might be out of scope for this thread.
    However out of curiosity, I can get package libgl1-mesa-swx11 working that replaces libgl1-mesa-glx. Is there a similar method for llvmpipe?
    The error is simply
    Code:
    $ LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 glxinfo | grep renderer
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
    However this used to say Mesa X11 with libgl1-mesa-swx11
    Using ubuntu 11.04
    thx
    PS: donation if possible
    Dunno what may be the problem. I'd suggest asking on mesa-dev.

    • Unigine on Radeon HD4250

      Hi!
      I am trying to run Heaven and Tropics demos on HD4250 with open-source drivers. I am using iobaf drivers but none is working correctly.
      Hevaen starts, but textures are missing. Tropics does not start and it says:
      http://pastebin.com/SjpWXP6D

      My glxinfo:

      Also FrozenByte games are missing textures.

      • Unigine on Radeon HD4250

        Hi!

        I am using Radeon HS4250, iobaf drivers and I am trying to run Unigine tests.
        Tropics fails to run and recieve this output

        Heaven starts, but missing textures.

          Apparently you are not using my PPA with the game:
          Code:
          Engine::init(): clear video settings for "Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS880 2.1 Mesa 7.10.2"
          glxinfo correctly detect it:
          Code:
          OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.12-devel (git-4c84fbe natty-oibaf-ppa)
          Are you on a 64 bit architecture? If yes you should also update the 32 bit mesa (I am on 32 bit so I can't help, I know it should be easier on oneiric, but my packages are still natty-only).

          • Thanks for info! (and thanks for doing really good work!)
            So your PPA does not have effect on 64bit Ubuntu? Any idea where could I get updated drivers for 64bit?

            Comment


            • The PPA include 64 and 32 bit versions of all the packages (indeed glxinfo works fine). The problem is that when you want to use a 32 bit game (i.e. games you download from 3rd party sites. Games from Ubuntu archives should always be 64 bit) on a 64 bit system you have to also install 32 bit mesa, but that's not easy to do on natty. It will be easier on oneiric (I'd suggest to try it...).

              • Thanks for explanation! There is no Tropics 64bit executable.

                Any idea why there are textures missing in Heaven? glxinfo output is the same. Heaven output is here http://pastebin.com/GKWmbhV9

                  • I'm not sure why, but I don't seem to be able to upgrade:

                    The reason why the above packages are not being installed:

                    Any help is appreciated :/
                    (Honestly, I think I fiddled with some X packages after installing Ubuntu a few months ago and simply forgot it... but I'm not sure and don't know how to find out).

                    Thanks

                      It looks like you had PPA of sarvatt2 (or something similar). You need to re-add that PPA (if you deleted) and then run in terminal "sudo ppa-purge (name of PPA)". (you also need to have installed ppa-purge. After that "sarvatt2" is purged you can use oibaf PPA (someone should correct me if I am wrong)

                        Correct, "that" PPA is probably xorg-edgers.

                        • Oibaf, I was wondering if you planned to start compiling drivers for Oneiric any time soon?

                            It's on my TODO list but I am a bit busy now... but since I received the first donation a couple of days ago I'll see to find the time and motivation to do it before oneiric final release

                            • Great, thanks. Your packages are exactly what a lot of people want.

                              • I pushed mesa, libtxc-dxtn and libvpx packages for oneiric. They should also support multiarch. Please test and give feedback.
