    Default DRI3 Support Merged Into Mesa 10.0

    Phoronix: DRI3 Support Merged Into Mesa 10.0

    Thursday was a heck of a day for Mesa development activity with several new OpenGL extensions having been merged, the Xorg state tracker being nuked, and the new game developer-focused GLX extension landing. However, that was not all and in the last commits prior to branching Mesa 10.0 from Git master was the adding of DRI3 support...

    Cool to see __DRIimageLoaderExtension and __DRIimageDriverExtension are merged for the intel drivers.

    When they will be written for gallium drivers, dri3 will be supported on all cards, and the Wayland egl backend will use these extensions instead of the dri2 ones.

    I'm surprised there is no article yet about the new power management that was merged in nouveau git: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/nouveau/linux-2.6 .

    One thing that I would love the developers to clarify is... Drivers need support for DRI(X) but do Toolkits? Like do Qt or GTK need specific support for DRI3 or are things just going to automatically get better when Xorg 1.15 and Mesa 10 come out?

    I'm still waiting for proper Optimus support.......... does DRI3 help with this? It keeps being hinted that DRI3 'may' help in this regard, but no clear answers have been posted.

    Isn't this kind of stuff hidden behind the X API?

    Angry Mesa trunk now comprehensively broken in Fedora

    So I've just tried to Build Mesa on Fedora 19. First it complained about the missing dri3proto extension, and so I downloaded it from here:

    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/proto/dri3proto

    Then it complained about a missing presentproto extension, which I dutifully downloaded from here:

    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/proto/presentproto

    And now it is complaining about:
    Code:
    configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xext xdamage xfixes x11-xcb xcb-glx >= 1.8.1 xcb-dri2 >= 1.8 xcb-dri3 xcb-present xcb-sync xshmfence xxf86vm) were not met:
    
    No package 'xcb-dri3' found
    No package 'xcb-present' found
    No package 'xshmfence' found
    And so I've given up. So much for "backwards compatibility". How is anyone expected to perform a "git bisect" now, with the tree in this state?
