  • due to the suggestion of matst88 (http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...089#post369089) i wanted to try out your xserver test version and added your repository from above.

    it can't be installed on ubuntu saucy due to broken/missing dependencies:
    Code:
    Die folgenden Pakete sind zur?ckgehalten worden:
      xserver-xephyr xserver-xorg-core
    0 aktualisiert, 0 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 2 nicht aktualisiert.
    [email protected]:~/Downloads/Unigine_Heaven-4.0$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
    xserver-xorg-core      xserver-xorg-core-dbg  
    [email protected]:~/Downloads/Unigine_Heaven-4.0$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
    Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
    Abh?ngigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.       
    Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
    Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
    Sie eine unm?gliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
    Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
    nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
    Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu l?sen:
    
    Die folgenden Pakete haben unerf?llte Abh?ngigkeiten:
     xserver-xorg-core : H?ngt ab von: xserver-common (>= 2:1.14.3-3ubuntu2+gd~s) aber 2:1.14.3-3ubuntu2 soll installiert werden
    E: Probleme k?nnen nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zur?ckgehaltene defekte Pakete.

      This is because xserver-common is a common package built on i386 but also used on amd64, and the i386 version failed to build so the package is not available anywhere. Please file a request to Ubuntu asking to patch xorg to backport that patch that is useful to anyone trying mesa 10 https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...erver/+filebug.

      Or wait me for fixing some way the package building on i386, but don't expect it anytime soon .

        • Just updated mesa (atm it was updated to commit 110009302bddb4c42a5b3ed5ca451d6bb50a06a0 in your ppa)

          I'm curious, how come you removed the oibaf tag in glxinfo OpenGL version string? Not complaining, just surprised that you decided to remove it and want to know the reason for doing so.

          Code:
          [email protected]:~$  glxinfo | grep Open
          OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
          OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD CEDAR
          OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.0.0-devel
          OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40
          OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
          OpenGL core profile extensions:
          OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.0.0-devel
          OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
          OpenGL context flags: (none)
          OpenGL extensions:

          • Hi guys! I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and have some issue: i have to run all applications (well, ok, games) with DRI_PRIME=1 option. And i have no mouse cursor in this case. No any single game with cursor. And w\o this option everything is fine (except performance, of course). So, the question is: any solution to make a cursor appear?

              I uploaded a xorg version which should fix the Intel issues and hopefully enable OpenGL 3.3, please test.

              Also I disabled updating packages for 12.04 and 12.10, and I'll also remove all the packages on the PPA soon.

                    Wait, why would you disable updates for 12.04 LTS and 12.10 when they're not EOL until for another good 5-8 months?

                    Can you please not drop support for these two ubuntu releases just yet?

                      Because I am providing this for free in my free time, I am now only personally interested in 13.10, nobody is willing to sponsor the work needed to support old releases and anyway if someone really want to use experimental drivers could upgrade to latest version which offer a better base.
