    So until someone implements DRI3 for radeon it's useless... There is a patch from iXit, but I've tried it and it's very buggy. Basically unusable.
    I've used Ixit's radeon dri3 without issues in the past, what's your problem?

      Then we need fresh Phoronix benchmarks with the in-server acceleration. But I doubt the tearing issue is solved still (on X without a compositor with glamor).

        Like someone wrote before, dual booting is not that cool for a lot of us for various reasons.
        I actually look forward to near-95% perf VM, that would be pretty good, and it seems we are there, just my hardware is too old for it...
        The other issue with dual booting/VM, is the cost of the Windows license vs the cost of wine and mesa-nine...

        I'm sure I will try it later, though compiling wine takes a long time, so I hate it.

        Are there other sources of this stuff you can recommend?
        You can use ccache, it makes building wine and mesa A LOT faster.

          Oh, one point relating the recent "shader compiler has become slower than my grandpa" news - does that mean there's a 10ms stutter when glamor encounters a new type of 2d operation for the first time in this reboot?

            Few small differences between xserver 1.16 vs 1.17 glamor to me are: firefox missing font(s) with default xrender fixed, gtk grab animation faster, gtkperf faster...

            But yeah tearing is still there without composite, AFAIK EXA only have a hack to prevent that... might be hacks are not alowed in xserver
            Without composite only proper fullscreen apps should no tear thanks to pageflipping.

              BTW, Gallium Nine works very well on radeon. I use patched xf86-video-ati, so I can use the DRI3-only version that is in Mesa master.

              Just a note for people who want to compile Mesa/Nine from source: Don't even bother with the 64-bit build. Most Windows games are 32-bit apps, so all you need is a 32-bit Mesa + its dependencies. You can get patched Wine from some PPA. Also, apply the patch for xf86-video-ati from David Heidelberger to get enough DRI3 support that Nine requires.

                Might depend on what game you like to play

                Any news that DS2 works now?

                  Oh it did bridgman, trust me. I hated glamor so much that you can't even imagine. Fortunately since xorg-server 1.16/1.17 it improved a lot and it's very usable nowadays.

                    Since Fedora wanted to ship Gallium Nine support, we made patches to have a DRI2 fallback. So it'll work with DRI2 (but there is a small perf hit)
                    Cool! Just checked it - Nine works again! Thank you!

                    As I understand it still misses some features (?), because for example Flatout 2 doesn't start when Nine is enabled with message "Failed to create effect: data/shaders/pro_static2x.sha", and if I copy native windows d3dx9_30.dll to flatout folder it starts but cars are black. Should I file a bug for this issue?

                    NFS Underground and Underground 2 also don't start with Nine with the following message:

                    ../../../../../../src/gallium/drivers/r600/r600_state.c:1076:r600_init_depth_surface: Assertion `format != ~0' failed.

                      Good call. I used 64-bit everything, including wine. The next test setup I'll try will be full 32-bit, even the OS.
