  • Is possible to use this repo in saucy? Will I have problems? When will we have packages for saucy?
    Thanks.

    • Have these drivers with Wine 1.7.2 running on MINT 15 and I get this white blur blob that runs from top to bottom in World of Warcraft. I'm not sure if that's because of Wine or these drivers. I had to fix some dependencies that borked.

      • Nevermind, it works now with no problems. No idea how it just fixed itself.

        • NV_vdpau_interop

          Mesa packages now includes NV_vdpau_interop v4:

            Anyway lately I am a lot busier than before (13.04 packages were ready some weeks after official release) so I won't promise I'll be able to provide 13.10 packages...
            Anyway, I added this ppa to my list, and it's working just fine in saucy (lubuntu, kernel 3.12-rc2)
            Thanks!

                A couple of fixes fixed it with non glamor (12.10 and 12.04):

                http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/dri...a70fa825693570

                13.04 probably need updated glamor, which I'll do as soon as I have some time.

                  • I have a serious problem and I don't now if it's related to kernel or opensource drivers. I'm using Xubuntu 13.04, I have a Mobility Radeon HD 3650 card and I use the latest version of the kernel (3.12) with DPM activated and this PPA. Often, the screen freezes, goes black and then turns on again but there are graphical glitches (distortions and other things) and the system is unresponsive, then I have to do a forced shutdown. Does anyone else have the same problem?

                    Thanks in advance.

                      I think "spstarr" on the #radeon IRC channel is seeing similar issues (at least at first glance). IIRC his current thinking is that it may not actually be a DPM issue but I haven't been following closely.
