    Ahh, that makes sense. I did see a series of patches from Christopher James Halse Rogers of Canonical come across my email this last Sunday that supposedly fixxes most everything but the llvmpipe stuff. Hopefully those patches will hit master soon. My Makefile foo is weak, but I might go ahead and dive in this weekend if I get the time.

    • Mesa doesn't properly compile now indeed. In the meantime... enjoy the Radeon 7000 support (2D with ShadowFB only).

      • You mean the radeon_blit.c error that appears when attempting to run certain software on those old Radeons?

          • I'm sorry, I confused Radeon HD 7000 (SI) with Radeon 7000 (R100).

            • right parameters

              I use a hd3850 agp on my motherboard and consulting datas the results is different in confront of hardware features:

              256MB gddr instead of real 512MB
              32bit width instead of 256bit width.

              How to correct this values?

                Where do you read that values?

                  • VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV670 AGP [Radeon HD 3850] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
                    Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Device 0028
                    Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
                    Memory at d0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
                    I/O ports at d800 [size=256]
                    Memory at fbff0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]

                    Kernel driver in use: radeon
                    Kernel modules: radeon


                    I've consulted again the vga parameters and I noted the 256 value is present although the memory is limited to 256MB value.

                    • That's most probably the size of your AGP GART and not of the graphics cards. Run "dmesg | grep VRAM" to get the size of your graphics cards RAM.
