    Phoronix: Mesa 7.6 Gets Pulled Into Ubuntu 9.10

    Ubuntu 9.10 had its beta release last week and the final release is coming in just three weeks, but this late in the release cycle, it has been decided to pull in the final Mesa 7.6 version. Pulling in this newer code that provides OpenGL acceleration on Linux provides numerous bug-fixes along with support for a greater number of OpenGL extensions on different hardware and other improvements.

    ah, thanks for the info. Only makes Phoronix's story even more random, of course.

    Looks like the current Fedora package is based on a git snap from September 21, so just shortly before the final release.

    Great, mesa 7.6 was released only 11 days ago
    Actually, Ubuntu Karmic has had a snapshot of mesa master from before 7.6 was branched all this time, the news is just that this snapshot has been updated to the real release.

    Fedora note

    Fedora 12 has had Mesa 7.6 in its repositories since June 12. There is a mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package in the repositories which adds the r600 DRI driver. On my Radeon HD 4770 test system, the latest Rawhide build can manage at least glxgears, compiz and neverball, and partially gnome-shell. haven't tested anything more complex yet.

    Nope, apport-collect is not about catching any crash, it's about collecting and submitting all the relevant information developers might want to look at (configuration files, hardware info, etc) and tend to simplify the job of the developer (less back and forth asking one thing after another. Thus it can be run afterwards, without needing to reproduce the crash. It does the job ubuntu-bug does when reporting a bug.

    It was hard to find that option ... all this automation confuses me I'm used to good old visit bugzilla and submit your report there, talk with devs etc.

    I was sure it was an ubuntu issue though, really didn't expect it to be upstream.

    Reported to the best of my ability.
    Wouldn't running now
    Code:
    apport-collect 446578
    be useful for the developers though, since you didn't seem to have used ubuntu-bug when reporting the bug?
