Updated and Optimized Ubuntu Free Graphics Drivers
I installed oibaf ppa on 12.04 some time ago. I spotted now it's not updated anymore.
How to remove packages? ppa-purge does nothing.
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
Updating packages lists
PPA to be removed: oibaf graphics-drivers
Warning: Could not find package list for PPA: oibaf graphics-drivers
If i add oibaf ppa (add-apt-repository ppaibaf/graphics-drivers) nothing chages
Problem is that system takes this packages as locally installed.
Synaptic would remove half of my system if i wanted to force other version.
currently istalled version: 2.4.47+git1311070904.ebff7a~gd~p
packages: xserver-xorg-[intel,ati,radeon,nouveau], libgl1-mesa[dev,dri,glx],libglm,libglapi-mesa,libgles2-mesa, libopenvg1-mesa,libxatracker1, mesa-common-dev
The AA bug in Mesa has been patched and is in the latest packages in Oibaf's PPA. However, the issue with games using libudev.so like GoldSrc and Source games, the patch for that is still not mainlined into mesa yet.
In my case it seems that it happens only on sites which have some google fancy stuff, like youtube or hangouts. After I disabled chat in my mailbox, it doesn't happen any more in my gmail. First I found it strange it happens only with my private account, and not with my gapps for business. The difference is, I don't have hangouts there, but the old google chat.
On phoronix it happens only on pages with youtube (or whatever) links.
