    Thanks. Doesn't look like that's the problem, though. Currently installed mesa-utils is 8.1.0-0ubuntu1~precise1.

    Following the comments in the bug report I see GL_ARB_texture_buffer_object isn't advertised but I'm using xserver 1.12, so it could be that.

      Cheers to the Intel (and others who helped!) folks for this work

        Yeah, I'm pretty sure you need 1.13 in order to create core profile contexts in glx.

          Huge thanks to Bryan Cain (plombo) for his great work on this as well! Bryan did a lot of the initial frontend work.

            OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD SUMO
            OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-bd19e25 precise-oibaf-ppa+glvdpau)
            OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

            Anyone know why it doesn't advertise 3.1 support?
            you should look at the core profile

            OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
            OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD BARTS
            OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-e6fb744)
            OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40

            OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-e6fb744)
            OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

              To my knowledge they bump the major version when a new OpenGL version is reached. Does this mean that when they hit OpenGL 3.3 it'll go to 11 or will the keep it at 10 because of the timeframe in which the two landed??

                3.3 can still land this cycle, if the work can get done quick enough.

                  Thanks for the help, folks. Seems I can't upgrade xserver on Kubuntu 12.04 LTS using backports without losing a whole bunch of important KDE packages. I'll wait for Saucy to come out next week and upgrade everything then.

                  Anyway, thanks and well done to all the devs that have got Mesa to this stage.

                    r600g OpenGL 3.2

                    The last bit that it took Mesa and the Intel driver to support OpenGL 3.2...
                    Waiting to see 3.2 support on r600g!!! Not advertised yet...

                    Code:
                    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
                    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD JUNIPER
                    OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.0.0-devel (git-975c6ce)
                    OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40
                    OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
                    OpenGL core profile extensions:
                    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.0.0-devel (git-975c6ce)
                    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

                      what to compile?

                      I want to compile Mesa from git to see radeonsi improvements. Is it enough to compile only MESA or do i also need DRM and radeon-DDX and there is also somethin caled DRI???

                      Iīm now on

                      Code:
                      glxinfo | grep OpenGL
                      OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
                      OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.3, 128 bits)
                      OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 9.2.1)
                      OpenGL extensions:
                      kernel 3.11.3
                      opensuse 13.1 RC1 x64



                      ... so my problem is I donīt know which howto I should follow at best:

                      http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building/

                      http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonBuildHowTo/

                      or even http://www.reddit.com/r/linuxquestio...n_ubuntu_1210/ and adapting it to my opensuse 13.1 RC1

                      any hint much appreciated!
