    I'm almost positive you don't have hardware-acceleration going on (VMware and using llvmpipe). I had the same results whenever glamor broke due to some update on my 7850.

    As for how to fix it, I don't know (not too familiar with that hardware). Perhaps try removing your xorg.conf? Maybe purge the PPA and check glxinfo results afterwards?

    to get you going, put this into the terminal:

    Sry, but I gived up, there are a lot of issues (doesn't even render well my kde desktop).

    @PMLinux_Chemist @PMEspionage724 @PMphill1978 Tryed all, doesn't work for me.

    I have been told that as it is a new graphic card still do not have adequate support, so I will wait. Ty

    Default radeonsi (cape verde, HD 8xxx), does it have opengl 3.3 or not????

    HI/2 all...

    Sorry if this was asked before but i cant find a straight answer anywhere.

    I have a CAPE VERDE Radeon HD 8850m and a intel hd4400.

    im using (k)ubuntu 14.04 nightly updated, with open source drivers for intel/amd and the oibaf ppa.

    Unfortunatelly radeonsi still shows opengl at version 3.1. Depending to whom i ask or search, some sources say radeonsi has 3.3 support and others say it has 3.3 support but not for the HD8xxxx line yet.

    Could airlied or any of the other devs shed some light on this? Does or does not radeonsi support the 7/8xxxx series with opengl 3.3?

    If it DOES support, what is needed to activate it?

    right now i have:

    i cant figure out what else i need or if i did everything correctly but there isnt any 3.3 for radeonsi + S.Islands yet.

    thanks

    is there any reason 9.2.5 is smooth on source games yet 10.2 is juddery and almost half the FPS?

    Yes, 3.3 is supported on GCN hardware (SI and CI). You need mesa 10.1 and llvm 3.5.

    I have mesa 10.1 and llvm 3.5 installed. I believe what you mean is that i need to recompile mesa with llvm 3.5, correct? or is enolugh to have just the system library installed?

    because i do have mesa 10.2 git (from oibaf) and llvm 3.5 installed.

    mesa:
    libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64 10.2~git1404100730.55f9bb~gd~t

    llvm:
    ii libllvm3.4:amd64 1:3.4-1ubuntu3 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, runtime library
    ii libllvm3.4:i386 1:3.4-1ubuntu3 i386 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, runtime library
    ii libllvm3.5:amd64 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, runtime library
    ii libllvm3.5:i386 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 i386 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, runtime library
    ii llvm-3.5 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies
    ii llvm-3.5-dev 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, libraries and headers
    ii llvm-3.5-runtime 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, IR interpreter
    ii llvm-3.5-tools 1:3.5~svn201651-1ubuntu1 amd64 Modular compiler and toolchain technologies, tools

    so my question is, do i need to start begging oibaf to recompile mesa for trusty with llvm 3.5 baked in?

    thamnks for the answer michael

    Yes, you need to compile mesa against llvm 3.5. Additionally, you need a version of glxinfo that will properly report core profiles.

    Is AMD starting to regret requiring llvm for new driver versions yet, given how slowly everyone upgrades? Or do you still think it was the right decision?
