    Phoronix: Several DDX Drivers Aren't Yet Ready For X.Org Server 1.20

    If you were hoping to build the newly-released X.Org Server 1.20 on your system(s) this weekend, be forewarned that a number of the DDX drivers haven't yet been updated for supporting the API/ABI changes of this big server update...

    I'm using Xorg 1.20 with xf86-video-amdgpu without issues on Arch with testing repository activated.
    Maybe the not yet updated DDX driver limits some of Xorg's new functionality, but at least I can use the system the same as before.

      I got rid of all the non modesetting drivers long time ago. Don't know if there is still a reason to use them for AMD. So far xorg 1.20 works well on Arch, only on Plasma-Wayland when starting Rise of the Tomb Raider the Feral menu doesn't show any content anymore, only crippled colours.

        xf86-video-amdgpu allows RedShift apply also to the hardware cursor (without amdgpu.dc) and it hides rubbish resolutions which would only lead to display malfunction (again, without amdgpu.dc).

          It's been three years since their last xf86-video-intel 3.0 release candidate and now five years since their last stable release of the Intel DDX driver.
          Someone make a joke about developers and procrastination please, I can't think of one.

            xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-amdgpu support TearFree (VSync) whereas xf86-video-modesetting does not, see: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98876

              I can't think of any, but I'm sure that a good ol' musical about procrastination will do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi3aEGo8y-E

                I don't have anything good at the moment. Does a sarcastic "Release early, release often" crack a smile?

                  Reading the bug quite fast it seem to not affect Kwin or Mutter. I will read it more detailed once I have time, thanks for the information.

                    Why do we need these DDX drivers when we have modesetting?
