    Can you confirm that I switched to newest Gallium drivers correcty? How can I verify that?
    Are you sure you actually want to use Gallium drivers on Intel HD? Official intel driver is i965 and it's not use Gallium.
    If you manually set XServer to use Gallium3D ILO driver then you should see "Gallium 0.4" in "OpenGL renderer string", e.g:
    Code:
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on Intel(R) Ivybridge
    If you just want to use latest Intel DRI (not gallium one) from this PPA then you should see suffix in version strings, e.g:
    Code:
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.0-devel (git-3618ac4 saucy-oibaf-ppa+curaga)

    Latest supported version of OpenGL is exposed in "OpenGL core profile version string".

      Heres a recording of when it happens: 20MB mkv. You'll notice that is happens when placing a rock on the ground. It also happens sometimes when rolling over a rock and when a tower gets destroyed.

      I have a Radeon HD5770 and this has never happened before. Has anybody experienced similar problems recently?
      Try installing this S3TC, it solved some of my problems. World of Warcraft no longer causes rainbow vomit on textures in DX9 mode, which also drastically slows down the frame rate. OpenGL mode also doesn't just randomly crash anymore either, but I still have a strange stutter in OpenGL mode. BTW, D3D is better now then OpenGL due to this issue in WOW.

      Code:
      sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0
      [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ] && sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386

      • So I'm using the latest graphics here with xubuntu 13.10, and I just noticed that after about 2-3 days of uptime. X server uses a ridiculous amount of memory.



        I'm not sure about the behaviour in stock is right now because it is unusable due to the freeze bug addressed in 9.2.3[1].

        Is anyone experiencing something like this?

        • Had to downgrade today latest version kills launching Valve games (tested Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat)

          Ubuntu 13.10, kernel 3.13 (today)

          Running an old laptop with Radeon Mobility HD2600.

          They just launch, Steam icon changes to "in-game", then 5 seconds later you're no longer listed as in game. A window doesn't even open.

          Ran the instructions for purging the PPA and all works again.

              Thanks for the suggestion but it seems that these packages are already installed in my system.

                  Damn, I was hoping it would be fixed today.

                  Odd that the latest poster has marked it as a duplicate of a bug from last year..? It only started happening yesterday, so something changed yesterday that broke it.

                    Has anyone noticed an issue with Google Chrome, and last mesa/drivers updates? This started happening today. Disabling hardware accelration works around the problem.

                    • Remove oibaf ppa from 12.04

                      Hello

                      I installed oibaf ppa on 12.04 some time ago. I spotted now it's not updated anymore.
                      How to remove packages? ppa-purge does nothing.

                      Code:
                      $ sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
                      Updating packages lists
                      PPA to be removed: oibaf graphics-drivers
                      Warning:  Could not find package list for PPA: oibaf graphics-drivers
                      If i add oibaf ppa (add-apt-repository ppaibaf/graphics-drivers) nothing chages

                      Problem is that system takes this packages as locally installed.
                      Synaptic would remove half of my system if i wanted to force other version.
                      currently istalled version: 2.4.47+git1311070904.ebff7a~gd~p
                      packages: xserver-xorg-[intel,ati,radeon,nouveau], libgl1-mesa[dev,dri,glx],libglm,libglapi-mesa,libgles2-mesa, libopenvg1-mesa,libxatracker1, mesa-common-dev

                      What else can I do?
