    Phoronix: Direct3D 9 Support Released For Linux Via Gallium3D, Running Games

    Linux desktop systems can now have working support for Microsoft's Direct3D 9 API via a new Gallium3D state tracker. Unlike the earlier Direct3D 10/11 state tracker for Gallium3D on Linux, this new code actually can run D3D9 games and at better performance than what's offered by Wine...

    Distros who engage in politics at the cost of end user experience should die. Like yesterday.

    and I would like to see benchmarks of this patch enabled against the default wine (if its possible).

    Whatever happened to the DX9 state tracker? Anyway for us to get the modified Wine and test it out?

    My Radeon 4850 box is only used for Civilization V since it went on sale on steam.. it's the reason I upgraded to Linux 3.11rc3 and the latest mesa to try to get improved performance. If someone makes a ppa for this, I'll totally use it.

    Im afraid that your work wont be accepted to Wine
    If they reject it you could try to convince distro maintainers who do not engage in politics to include your D3D support as package

    Your work is fantastic. This code is OSS. It's so good in fact that I'm certain someone will maintain a patchset. I'm convinced that it will still be available regardless of if it gets accepted upstream or not.
