    would be possible to integrate the new cs code into libdrm so that also the ddx (and eventually also r600g, and classic radeon, r200, r300 and r600) can benefit from it?
    I don't think so. My changes are rather radical and I don't want to destabilize libdrm. Also, r600g doesn't use libdrm.

      How many of these "patented but implemented" feature branches are floating around anyway? Has anyone taken the time to get up a git repo that tracks and merges them as well as possible?

        No, I think this is the only one.

          What about S3TC? I seem to recall it had similar problems (which is annoying as all crap).

          • What's the problem with S3TC? There is a separate library for it that works very well with Mesa.

            • I thought there was recently a posting on the mailing list that said it would be fine as long as it was hidden behind a config switch. Was that shot down privately by others?

              • It was rather completely ignored by others...

                • Would it be possible to implement this in the form of external library like libtxc_dxtn?

                    Sounds like silent approval to me? If you committed it, maybe they'd still ignore. Or else you'd at least get a response.

                    • Yeah, maybe worths a shot?
