      Nope, not just you. Present support has not been started for the Radeon DDX, so vsync isn't supported at the moment. I totally understand if you revert.

        • sarnex, should we remove the official Wine PPA before adding yours?

            It doesn't really matter since my version string is higher than theirs, so mine would install. The only problem is if they come out with a new version before I get a chance to update to the new version, and I usually do this within six hours.

            So, no you don't have to do but if you run update and upgrade in the window where the offical wine PPA updates before I update to override it, you will lose the nine version until I update my PPA.

            • Hello,

              I've got some questions:

              I thought using the xorg-edgers/ppa PPA would result in always running the latest open source GPU drivers.

              But the xorg-edgers/ppa PPA currently does not seem to have the latest xserver-xorg-video-ati (xf86-video-ati) driver.

              The latest version of the xserver-xorg-video-ati (xf86-video-ati) driver is 7.5.0 according to:

              http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati/

              But the xorg-edgers/ppa PPA only comes with version 7.4.99.

              So, after doing some search, I came across the oibaf/graphics-drivers PPA. And this one does have version 7.5.99.

              So, I am wondering:

              Is there any specific reason why the xorg-edgers/ppa PPA only comes with version 7.4.99 whereas the oibaf/graphics-drivers PPA comes with version 7.5.99?

              And why do both PPAs have a .99 at the end of the version numbering, even though the xf86-video-ati page mentions a .0 at the end?

              And some more questions:

              Should the oibaf/graphics-drivers PPA be used together with the xorg-edgers/ppa PPA?

              And:

              In a recent Phoronix article the following PPA was mentioned:

              https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-...ve/ubuntu/mesa

              Is the paulo-miguel-dias/mesa PPA better than the oibaf/graphics-drivers PPA? Or what is it all about?

              It would be much appreciated if someone could answer those questions.

              Regards

              • i guess you must ask paulo what exactly he changed as he is basing his stuff on oibafs ppa.

                  my ppa is based on oibaf work but differs in a few ways.
                  mine has llvm 3.6 git, oibaf is 3.5.x. i separated nine in proper libs instead of bundling it in mesa libs package, so you can have both or just plain mesa. also, since i use this ppa myself and i have an hybrid laptop, intel/ati i usually give it a good test and try to keep stuff usable yet cutting edge.
                  finally the drivers have .99+timestamp at the end because they are compiled from daily git.

                  • I have installed the latest version from the paa and installed the video decoding driver but he still use for vaapi the vdpau backend (where mpv segfault). if i compile mesa by myself he use the correct vaapi state tracker.

                    • Interesting update today. Somehow I get OpenGL 3.3 on my old Dell laptop with intel intel ironlake graphic card. It was OpenGL 2.1 before. But the PC is also a lot more slugguish as a result. Firefox scrolling is now very slow and choppy. Oh well, too bad. I am restoring to yesterday's image.

                      Code:
                      glxinfo | grep OpenGL

                      • VDPAU working for even me!

                        Just to note that I have VDPAU working well as of testing today. I've seen updates to mesa-vdpau stuff pretty much daily, so I'm not sure how long its been working, but this is why I bought my Bonaire in mid 2013 - the promise of VDPAU from an open-source driver. Developers of these drivers rock. Oibaf, you rock too. Thanks!

                        • Hi oibaf, you can update libvdpau to 0.9. Good new year
                          Ciao Fabio il mio inglese pessimo, puoi aggiornare per favore libvdpau alla versione 0.9. Grazie

                            It does not seem to use the Intel ddx, mesa is software rendering.

                            • @Kano,

                              It was fixed in the following update, probably some glitches with that build.

                              • Any idea why right clicking in firefox or Chromium doesn't allow the menu to appear until you move the mouse over the area where it should appear? Started to happen with latest graphics update. Can get worse where only bits and pieces appear when you move over it.
