  • Thanks for info! (and thanks for doing really good work!)
    So your PPA does not have effect on 64bit Ubuntu? Any idea where could I get updated drivers for 64bit?

    Comment


    • The PPA include 64 and 32 bit versions of all the packages (indeed glxinfo works fine). The problem is that when you want to use a 32 bit game (i.e. games you download from 3rd party sites. Games from Ubuntu archives should always be 64 bit) on a 64 bit system you have to also install 32 bit mesa, but that's not easy to do on natty. It will be easier on oneiric (I'd suggest to try it...).

      • Thanks for explanation! There is no Tropics 64bit executable.

        Any idea why there are textures missing in Heaven? glxinfo output is the same. Heaven output is here http://pastebin.com/GKWmbhV9

          • I'm not sure why, but I don't seem to be able to upgrade:
            Die folgenden Pakete sind zur?ckgehalten worden:
            libegl1-mesa libegl1-mesa-drivers libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx libgles2-mesa
            Die folgenden Pakete werden aktualisiert (Upgrade):
            libdrm-dev libdrm-intel1 libdrm-nouveau1a libdrm-radeon1 libdrm2 libglu1-mesa libkms1 libopenvg1-mesa libvpx0 mesa-common-dev xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-intel
            xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-video-radeon


            The reason why the above packages are not being installed:
            libegl1-mesa : H?ngt ab von: libglapi-mesa (= 7.12~git1110030847.1165b6~gd~n) aber 7.12.0~git20110726.b189d163-0ubuntu0sarvatt2~natty soll installiert werden
            libgl1-mesa-glx : H?ngt ab von: libglapi-mesa (= 7.12~git1110030847.1165b6~gd~n) aber 7.12.0~git20110726.b189d163-0ubuntu0sarvatt2~natty soll installiert werden
            libgles2-mesa : H?ngt ab von: libglapi-mesa (= 7.12~git1110030847.1165b6~gd~n) aber 7.12.0~git20110726.b189d163-0ubuntu0sarvatt2~natty soll installiert werden


            Any help is appreciated :/
            (Honestly, I think I fiddled with some X packages after installing Ubuntu a few months ago and simply forgot it... but I'm not sure and don't know how to find out).

            Thanks

              It looks like you had PPA of sarvatt2 (or something similar). You need to re-add that PPA (if you deleted) and then run in terminal "sudo ppa-purge (name of PPA)". (you also need to have installed ppa-purge. After that "sarvatt2" is purged you can use oibaf PPA (someone should correct me if I am wrong)

                Correct, "that" PPA is probably xorg-edgers.

                The list of r600g bug is at: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...0&product=Mesa

                It looks like your problem is not listed there. Try reporting a new bug so that developers can have a chance to fix it.

                • Oibaf, I was wondering if you planned to start compiling drivers for Oneiric any time soon?

                    It's on my TODO list but I am a bit busy now... but since I received the first donation a couple of days ago I'll see to find the time and motivation to do it before oneiric final release

                    • Great, thanks. Your packages are exactly what a lot of people want.
