    Eh, GLAMOR isn't that bad. But, that would still be an impressive improvement regardless.

    I look forward to the results.

    If I remember right, on the GLAMOR benchmark done without any of these patches, GLAMOR was running between 40-80% of Intels SNA/UNA.

    Yup, I got it working fine. Maybe check your xorg.conf? It should be enabled by default but something is probably conflicting with it. I'm currently running Arch 64 bit.

    If you're getting issues where compositing effects randomly don't work, I've noticed that problem seems to have gone away in the 4.13 update.

    So are there any easy ways to test these out once they get committed ? It seemed when Glamor was a standalone lib it would be easier to update/release versions faster - do we really now either have to wait for a new Xorg release, or build the entire X server from git?

    xorg.conf is fine (according to Xorg.log GLAMOR is enabled and working) but in result after login there is only coloured squares on the screen (disabling desktop effect, as expected, doesn't help). With same xorg.conf, this issue is not reproducible with Compiz and Mutter.

    It is that bad for basic X11 drawings, just XRender drawings are accelerated fine.
