    Phoronix: Mesa 20.0 Now Includes Intel's Gallium3D Driver To Build By Default

    As part of the ongoing effort for Intel's plans to use their new Gallium3D OpenGL Linux driver by default on next quarter's Mesa 20.0 for Broadwell "Gen8" graphics and newer, another step in that direction was achieved on Friday...

    This is what happened on clearlinux the other day. It would seem that broke Wayland in some mysterious way. For now they are back to the classic driver.

      I'm surprised R300 is still on by default. How many people are using hardware that old with a modern kernel?

          Raises hand. I've still got a laptop with an x300 mobile that is up to date.

          I've also got an x600 pcie and a ?x1950? That I pop in occasionally to test stuff with.

          But the oldest card in regular use for me are a pair of r600g cards, one PCI card in my late 90s Alpha, and a 6850 in a machine for clover testing/development.

            Why is this driver limited to newer hardware only? Is "old" hardware like Haswell unable to benefit from a gallium driver?

                I suspect they would need to make so many workarounds for shortcomings in older hardware. It's the same with Vulkan. Ivy Bridge and Haswell are still WIP AFAIK.

                  Lol, good luck. AMDs support is much worse.
