    Micheal should really do another article based on those blog posts.

    Agreed, to claim that the radeon drivers are at 30% the performance of Catayst is laughable in this day and age.

    Well, I switched to Xfce when 4.10 was released as GNOME 3 was never going to support my chosen monitor configuration, which later resulted in two of my brothers switching soon after as they usually...

    I understand the sentiment but in the case of RWS you are being completely unfair - Postal 3 was essentially stolen from them by their publisher at the time, meaning that they could not even get the...

    Which completely ignores the fact that one of the main purposes of these benchmarks is also to show how the drivers themselves have been progressing rather than just testing what games work at the...

    Seconded.

    All of these people complained back when it was all Quake engine games being used, so Micheal eventually managed to get the Valve games working in decent enough shape for benchmarking in...

    Preacher sermonizing the converted of course, but I for one am more than happy to accept slightly smaller frame-rates for all of the convenience that a properly mainlined Linux kernel graphics driver...

    Well, I was of course aware of the Arch Wiki given the fact that I just wrote an article for it; my main problem was the assumption that architectures had to be more hard set than they actually are.

    So I did manage it by using the steps outlined here:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Migrating_Between_Architectures_Without_Reinstalling#Install_kernel_.2864-bit.29

    If nothing else, I am...

    At any rate, I decided to spread the knowledge around a little bit by making a page for this on the Arch Wiki:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bisecting_Mesa

    Interestingly enough my system was also immune from the HyperZ problems with Brütal Legend about a year ago because mine was still 32 bit while my brother's was 64 bit, something which allowed me to...

    [hamish@Griffindor mesa]$ git bisect bad
    64c2bdc334ba472603b1e7cd2c3046cfbce285b6 is the first bad commit

    Alright, thanks to the excellent help I received on here, I got git bisect to name what it believes to be the troublesome commit:

    I have tested both DPM and HyperZ with no obvious effect - given that I am on Mesa 10.3 HyperZ would also be disabled by default anyway.



    I am aware that it could be a problem with the Arch...

    Lacking any further information, I endeavoured to create a bug report anyway:
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85526

    Strangely enough I can not find any reference to 10.3.2 on the Mesa website:
    http://mesa3d.sourceforge.net/index.html
  17. I downgraded to the previous Mesa version and the...

    I downgraded to the previous Mesa version and the problems went away, so I have at least confirmed that Mesa is indeed the problem:


    cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
    sudo pacman -U...
  18. Help diagnosing problems with a Readon HD 4670 on Mesa 10.3.2-1

    Yesterday on Arch I upgraded from Mesa 10.3.1-1 to 10.3.2-1 and since then I have been having corruptions in OpenGL reliant games as well as Chromium. I am using a Radeon HD 4670 with R600g as...

    And I could just as counter-productively point to the myriad of bugs and problems they allowed due to their rigid release schedules, but what would be the point?

    It was certainly the first time I encountered any issues - strangely enough though it only seemed to apply to 64 bit systems.
