    I was very sad to see that you dropped support for Precise but I can understand how the backports were a huge additional overhead. I am wondering, though: Is there any way to get the latest Precise packages you still backported or are they gone forever? (I had updated my system with your PPA in mid-october but disabled the PPA after that. I'd love to be able to get the latest Mesa build that still supported Precise).

    Thanks again for all your effort!

    Well, I found the reason of no cursor in 3D-things I wrote before. It was a MATE. In Unity is everything is ok. But what the hack just happened after two last updates? Performance reduced (5000fps vs 1800fps on glxgears). And permanently blinking mouse cursor. And no cursor in 3D again. May be asking in the wrong thread, but how can I downgrade drivers?

    I too have this issue. Running HD 3000 sandy bridge on 13.10 saucy, but no OpenGL 3.3:

    OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.1.0-devel (git-2d5f21b saucy-oibaf-ppa)
    OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.0-devel (git-2d5f21b saucy-oibaf-ppa)
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

    $ dpkg -l | grep xserver-xorg-core
    ii xserver-xorg-core 2:1.14.3-3ubuntu2+gd~s amd64 Xorg X server - core server

    I'm very unhappy that all precise deb packages were totally removed. Ubuntu precise is LTS release supported by 2017. Because of that now I'm preparing new PPA repository for daily precise builds. But instead of creating dsc packages locally, I will use launchpad recipes and launchpad mirror vcs support, so everything will be created and compiled automatically on launchpad server. When PPA is ready I will write. Later (in december) I maybe look at radeonsi support...

    What does this actually mean to a layman? I have a i5 2405s and the main use is mythtv.

    Nice. You may want to consider offering updated libvdpau and linux-firmware packages.
