Ok, it may be harder for the stable versions they'd be looking to ship, but now I'm curious.
Could phoronix pull from today's code, compile both drivers and give OpenGL benchmarks?
*sigh* I wish Ubuntu had bi-monthly driver updates or something. I'm on Hardy now pretty much just for the latest drivers for our three intel GPU's.
And will then disable DRI and do real work. Also, this user will not be the only person hitting that case. Everyone else who uses the exact same driver stack and close enough hardware will experience exactly the same with a wide range of 3d using applications.Quote:
The user will try and spin the compiz cube with 10 eye candy plugins enabled or try playing stage 2 of some 3D game and wonder why the whole computer hangs.
Maybe disabling DRI is an option for Novell in the future, but we have users who want to run compiz and I'm sure you have some Xgl lovers internally as well.
Just switching off accel is going to be less and less a solution and we are going to have to put more and more time into fixing those sort of problems. We are in a better position to do this now than we have ever been before.
