rworkman: Do you have the sources for the Mesa package you're shipping somewhere? They don't seem to be in the stuff you've put up, only the final package is.

Eeek, yes. Sorry for the oversight -- they're in a directory above the x11 sources. I've added an "EXTERNAL" directory in ./x11/src/ with links to mesa, libdrm, and xterm sources. Thanks for the heads-up.

For anyone who is vaguely interested in Evergreen - rworkman's packages above will give you working modesetting, but that's it.

If you want acceleration, you need to build the evergreen_accel branch of xf86-video-ati - the 6.13 series will only allow you to do modesetting.

Some caveats:

1) Not sure how stable it is - I managed to get an X crash in EXA within a few minutes of using it (though I'm still running on it now)

2) I've not been brave enough to re-enable compositing yet.

3) I'm running with 2.6.36-rc7 - you might be able to get away with 2.6.35, but the whole DRM area for these cards still seems to be going through a lot of churn, so probably better to stick with something quite recent.

Update:

Points 1 & 3 - I've been hitting this bug - https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30188

As per the bug, you'll either need the drm-radeon-next branch of the drm-2.6 git tree, wait for 2.6.37 to start, or wait for patches to be backported to older releases to stop the segfaulting.

Thanks for working on this Robby.

My setup:
Fuijutsu Amilo with intel GM965/GL960.
KDE 4.4.5
Kernel 2.6.35.6 32-bit

Your packages work great on all WM's with improved performance except KDE which is unstable with some crashes and lockups.

Please see attached logs.

Another log from a hang which lasted a couple of minutes, it repeats the same message a few tusen times (I had to truncate it for the attachment):

hi,

My CPU/GPU is intel i3. After using the new xorg, glxgears returned only about 60FPS, please refer to the following:

bash-4.1# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
303 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.443 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.978 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.978 FPS

I remember it was over thousand FPS before.

Your refresh rate is 60 so your glxgears framerate is 60.

multi-touch / gesture extension

I've got a Fujitsu T900 with a combo touchscreen and wacom-enabled screen.

I see that your 1.9.0 does not (seem to) have the GESTURE extension built in. Any chance of adding that?

Thanks.

Jim

Repeating myself from the post above, I have a Fujitsu T900. It has a synaptics touchpad. Under Slack 13.1 (using various kernels, including the huge one) I get reports of unhappyness from Xorg.0.log. (Here is the output of grep Synapt /var/log/Xorg.0.log .)

Possibly this is some kernel issue, I have tried it with custom
2.6.35.5 and 2.6.35.7 kernels, as well as vmlinuz-huge-2.6.33.4.


Anyone have any words of wisdom?


Thanks.

ps: I'm using one external mouse, so it came as mouse2. My old config was suppressed inside xorg.conf.

Actually, there is - check out /usr/share/ instead, however.
The packages provide them in this directory, but the user can override them in /etc/ .

Robby,

It seems mesa 7.9 depends on talloc as a new requirement. Slackware provides it bundled with samba, but that's a rather large dep. to get opengl working out of the box (I'd also guess there are a few people who don't install, or wouldn't think to, for desktop use).

Any thoughts on splitting this out for l/ , and building samba against it? It seems most distros use this approach already. Installing it here makes opengl work again on my intel card ( where prior, "glxinfo | grep -i direct" showed a nasty error).
