Is evergreen support in xorg-edgers repository?
wanna try it. and I will grab latest 2.6.36.

I haven't seen a repo for the evergreen-accel branch of xf86-video-ati (which you need for Evergreen accel right now). Once the evergreen-accel branch gets merged into xf86-video-ati master you should be OK.

I hope it gets merged soon. FGLRX doesnt work on my system period.. xf86-video-ati is my only hope..

You can download and build the source yourself - it's not that hard.
Anyways, I think the merge should happen soon. It was waiting on a couple of things (a -ati release and some evergreen fixes) but I believe the last of those pre-requisites happened yesterday afternoon.

could someone please point out the steps or a link to that needed on a gentoo-system with a 2.6.35-kernel (or even 2.6.36-rc* kernel if that's needed)
to get it working - I mean the libs and programs, including the modifications to the ebuilds for the evergreen-accel
fglrx is getting better but still messed up in several areas
many thanks in advance

you should use .36, .35 contains a few bugs that you'd otherwise have to manually patch.
gentoo: use the x11 overlay for mesa-9999 ebuild
xf86-video-ati, manual install:

Anyone still getting random crashes with 2d accel?
I've got 2.6.36-rc6, along with git versions mesa and xf86-video-ati.
Are there some patches for Evergreen that didn't make it into 2.6.36-rc6 that help with stability?
10-06-2010, 05:24 AM
I am, yeah. The stabillity is *much* better now (rc5, latest git everything else) than it was a few RCs ago. But I do still get some X crashes. Now at least, it's hours before it crashes rather than minutes. Oddly, they nearly aleays occur for me while dragging a scrollbar (or, 'holding on' to a scrollbar). Anyone else get that?
