According to this thread http://hoegsberg.blogspot.com/ Fedora 9 includes DRI2 with the intel driver, so it seems it's here now. Have you considered using it in fglrx or radeon? Seems a shame to have this working in intel but not ati.
As I understand it, DRI2 is still pretty "green" and not ready for widespread use. The FOSS Intel driver is the most worked on, so it's no surprise that it got support before anything else out there.
I figure since the next generation of cards is coming out soon, i might as well ask, Approximately when will the FGLRX Driver have support for the Radeon R700 cores (as in Radeon HD4000 series) since the release is planned for next month?
it's useless since no dev looks in it! changes proposed in the bugzilla don't go upstream and if someone has an issue, devs don't try to understand it better, and solve it.
it's completely useless an unofficial bugzilla... it should become official so we could work together with devs.
otherwise there's no way to do it, since this forum isn't exactly the right way to do things..
so, what's the better way to contribute?
I can answer that one right here
The bugzilla is "unofficial" in the sense that it is community maintained; we are not trying to keep it up to date ourselves. That said, we do look at it and we do pick off the highest priority issues and try to reproduce them in house so we can troubleshoot and fix them.
We are going to be doing more of this over time, and we'll talk about that more when Matthew and I are actually able to get through the rest of the Q&A list
Interesting, I have 4 GB ram with an AMD64X2 CPU where the whole memory remapping thing works completely different, but my system hang is like bug 1 described here - (X crashes/hangs system at startup).
I fear I will have to physically remove two sticks of RAM (back to 2GB) in order to test, but my curiosity is definitely piqued.
If it turns out the driver can't handle the AMD64 CPU's remapping above 4GB of RAM either, then that's REALLY a lot of negative brownie points for AMD/ATI!!
