Nightwulf|work: hi all
udovdh: installed libdrm_intel >= 2.4.21 from rawhide
udovdh: but autogen.sh still detects 2.4.20...
udovdh: for mesa that is.
udovdh: why oh why?
udovdh: is it normal for libdrm-devel *.pc files to have 2.4.20 versions mentioned in them when the rawhdie rpm says 2.4.21?
udovdh: or is this a bug?
udovdh: See http://fr2.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/devel/rawhide/i386/libdrm-devel-2.4.21-0.1.fc14.i686.html and scroll down a bit for the changelog
nedko: my system is missing /usr/lib64/dri/r600_dri.so
nedko: should it be installed by the xf86-video-radeonhd-1.3.0 package?
yangman: no. it's part of mesa
nedko: does radeonhd have 3d acceleration?
yangman: mesa handles 3D
nedko: but that will be slow, right?
nedko: i get: (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
nedko: but i want hardware rendering
nedko: is it possible with radeonhd-1.3.0?
yangman: the newest relases of Mesa supports 3D for r6xx/r7xx
yangman: if your distro is reasonably up to date with those packages, it should just work
nedko: i'm on gentoo
yangman: which GPU?
nedko: RS780 hd3300
yangman: yeah, just make sure you're on latest
yangman: I suggest switching to KMS and also to xf86-video-ati instead
yangman: and use mesa from testing
nedko: yangman: thank you
nedko: yangman: why you suggest KMS and xf86-video-ati?
nedko: am i right that xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-radeonhd are DDX and thus play no direct role in the 3D business?
yangman: radeonhd development's been stagnating for a while now, so I'm not sure if it has compatability issues with changes that's been happening to DRM and Mesa
yangman: and there are certain 3D features that require things only available through KMS
nedko: understood, thanks again
nedko: in my kernel, 2.6.30-gentoo-r5, there seems to be KMS only for I915
yangman: you'll want 2.6.33
nedko: men this will be a long quest
