    It actually looks vastly better for my Radeon 7000 than F19 Alpha !

      In fact, the independent Gears on Gallium continues to make great use of the Phoronix Test Suite for delivering numerous independent Linux GPU benchmarks.
      It also makes great use of the openSUSE build service and the SUSE Studio.

        Does anyone know if this supports UVD for ATI video cards?
        I am keen to try out UVD and see if it works for my machine, however I don't want to do this on my live running media PC.
        This seems like a nice easy way to give it a shot.

        Things that it needs are provided here:

          Gears on Gallium 2013.04.22 doesn't support UVD.
          But i made Gears on Gallium 2013.04.25-UVD with kernel 3.9-rc5-linux-next201230424, now I upload it to the server.

            Thankyou

              It worked perfectly! 1080p video, High def, with 30% CPU.
              Normally the show starts to jitter after about 10 minutes of playback, but this worked beautifully!

              Now to upgrade my MediaPC without breaking it. Thankyou for do these builds.
              The video card is an onboard
              01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4250]

                How can I use it on my desktop? Jast add you repoes and when install kernel, mesa, libdrm, video-ati (my card based on r710), or anything else?

                          ohhh.... good work Pontostroy;-) but... after booting, kernel can't load firmware - radeon_uvd: Can't load firmware "radeon/RV710_uvd.bin" .
                          However i'm downloaded firmware then puted it in /lib/firmate/radeon and /lib/firmware/3.9.0-rc5-0-vanilla/radeon/. what am I doing wrong?
