    Wow i feel stupid i totally forgot that i was playing around with catalyst control center in windows and changed the amount of built-in memory to 32...
    Anyway now with tormod,xorg-edgers,radeon-rewrite ppa things are working more smoothly, etracer and most texture issues are gone
    but still one issue that i have is that blender still has artifacts,mainly with the menu and also yo frankie doesnt work , but i still need to check rest of my games
    (sorry for the way my post looks as i am posting on my phone)

    I already have the latest .30 kernel from Karmic, should I add the 3 repos mentioned, do an apt-get upgrade?
    No, you don't have to add any other repo.

    Oh well, any one has an idea about how to fix this?
    If you see something not working with radeon-rewrite which works fine with the "classic" mesa, other components being the same, please report a bug as explained on the radeon-rewrite PPA page.

    BTW, we will update mesa in x-updates as soon as a stable update exists.

    Tormod is a contributor to the X-Swat team as well, so you should see the good bits from his builds reflected there.

    Well, I'm mainly talking about the performance regression from previous versions to a default Jaunty set-up.

    With the Tormod and radeon-rewrite PPAs, Compiz seems a bit faster, and glxgears shows a higher FPS (~800), but anything else that uses 3D is messed up, textures, or something like that, mainly unplayable.

    So I'm wondering if I use the Ubuntu X-Swat or the tormod PPAs without radeon-rewrite, will I have usable 3D without performance problems?

    I think this was the Mesa regression for chips without HW TCL. I'm pretty sure it was fixed in the radeon-rewrite branch of mesa, not sure about mesa master.
