    The non-init of the driver was coming from the non presence of glamor in current Debian Jessie...

    I added Kanotix repository and now everything works ! well, at least opengl 3.1.

    Thx a lot

    BTW, you should rebuild Mesa after installing LLVM. Otherwise, bad things may happen.

    That's true ! I did not even notice it was written renderer = llvmpipe... I need to check my logs to find why

But for now, the display is so laggy I can't event try.



    Here is the output of glxinfo | grep OpenGL :
    OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits)
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 10.1.0-rc2
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
    OpenGL extensions:
    That's definitely very wrong. You are getting software rendering, because the radeon driver isn't even loading.

    Even with llvm 3.4 it should still advertise OpenGL 3.1, if you're stuck at 2.1 it's most likely because of missing floating point textures. Are you passing --enable-texture-float to configure when building mesa?

    I'm running Debian Jessie/Sid on a 7850 with the latest available packages, but OpenGL support is still being reported at 2.1 (kernel 3.13, mesa 10.1-rc2, llvm 3.4).
    Do I need to switch on something ?

    Switching to another distro is not an option

    Thanks
    It seems I've found the answer myself ! I need to upgrade for llvm 3.5 !

    As the article stated: AMD Radeon HD7000 and newer.
    Some of them only: to be exact, only GCN cards use RadeonSI. Older rebranded cards won't use RadeonSI.

    not true for opensuse tumbleweed or even opensuse 13.1 at least for HD 7950
