Unpack it, cd to mesa-radeon-rewrite and go through the stages 2-4 mentioned in the post 4. This will work for Ubuntu. If you have another distro check --prefix (it might be different).
Be prepared to reinstall mesa packages in Synaptic if you crash your system.
Thanks! Do i need any special things to do this?
I get this error message after the first step:
Never mind... I've solved that... But i have a new error, and i can't resolve:Code:bobber@bobber-laptop:~/Asztal/mesa-radeon-rewrite$ sudo ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr ./autogen.sh: 16: autoreconf: not found
checking for DRIGL... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xext xxf86vm xdamage xfixes) were not met:

I can' find the packages above. Maybe i have to add a new repository? Or these are part of another package?
Sorry, I forgot about this. You have to install autoconf and satisfy all dependencies for mesa compilation:
1) sudo apt-get install autoconf;
2) sudo apt-get build-dep mesa;
Then try: ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr. Autoconf will show you any other libraries you need - install them in Synaptic. For example, if you need xt, search for 'xt' and install libxt-dev and so on.
did it manually, but works Now I'm compiling new mesa... I hope, it will work. Thanks for your help!
Compiled with some errors, installed with some errors. Works, but nothing has changed. Still got 300-330fps in glxgears (got 1200-1300 with fglrx under 8.10)... Maybe I did it wrong?
You can not compile with errors. If you have errors your new mesa libraries are not installed. Check your ./mesa-radeon-rewrite/lib directory. You must see a lot of libraries there. During the installation they will replace the old Mesa stuff (for example, in /usr/lib/dri).
I feel myself so stupid... Where I have to find ./mesa-radeon-rewrite directory? If where i unpack the tar, then i can only find these in the /mesa-radeon-rewrite/lib:
