  • How to revert back to stock RADEON drivers???

    Ok read all 72 pages of this thread, i tried the purge ppa command bit it did not revert my graphics back. I am running Mint 15 with KDE 4.11
    I was getting 60fps before in open gl apps now i get less than 30, what gives? how do i get back hardware open gl support?

      Does Oibaf even support Mint?

      Comment


      • @Oibaf
        i recall my post above. i checked out the links on your ppa and accorindg to the one showing the current development status of mesa and driver supprots on freedesktop.org the i965 driver should already support the geometry shaders and actually opengl 3.2.

        so why is it that it isn't? i mean the geometry shaders are not reported as available extension using glxinfo neither unigine demos recognise it. were your builds configured for a minimal setup, maybe?

          IIRC, Intel only implemented support for geometry shaders on newer chip families.

              It looks like they implemented support for Gen7 and newer hardware which I guess is Ivybridge and haswell. Not sure about older asics like sandybridge.

                well, then my question still holds as i am having a haswell.

                am damn curous about what's reason.

                  I think it should work, cause Mint is really just Ubuntu. Mostly Ubuntu. My only problem is getting sound working through HDMI.

                    Hi all - first, thanks to oibaf for this ppa saucy. This should be very convenient. I am having no success though. I added the repo and used the update program. No complaints from ubuntu during the update.

                    vdpauinfo:

                    This page on the RadeonDriver does not mention Bonaire -> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver. Is it possible that it is not being picked up?

                    cat vdpau_wrapper.cfg:
                    enable_flash_uv_swap=1
                    disable_flash_pq_bg_color=1

                    Any tips? I haven't fault-found this very helpfully, I suspect. What else should I provide?

                      I was looking forward to using the GLSL 1.5 support that comes with Mesa 10's OpenGL 3.2 and 3.3 support.

                      It looks like this commit to the Mesa git repo should have enabled GLSL 1.50:
                      http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...13e160b731d986

                      GLSL 3.30 was also enabled:
                      http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...9dfd5ed59d21fc

                      The documentation was also updated to indicate support:
                      http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...d98810aed37193
