can anybody give me an update on the latest drivers with heroes of newerth?
if needed i can provide you with a beta account.
I've been trying on Arch 64 the last few days with all the mesa/libgl/drm/video-ati/etc git trees and stock 2.6.32 Arch kernel without any success. In fact the last few days I have zero 3D, whereas at least when I first tried last week some time, games like alienarena and worldofpadman worked amazingly well.
HoN was giving me ARB_shader_something errors.
I'm currently compiling (via ssh from work) a 2.6.33-rc4 kernel without the power management patches located in this PKGBUILD (which I initially tried):
Now that xorg-edgers has moved to Mesa 7.8, I now have OpenGL2.0 with radeon. Pretty much all my games are playable in some manner. GLSL in Nexuiz and Alien Arena no longer cause crashes and/or massive slowdows, but it causes the game to render garbage. Blur is usable in Nexuis as well, just as AA is (doesn't do anything, but neither does it slow the game to a crawl anymore). Warsow still crashes at start-up, Tremulous is slow and unplayable, Neverwinter Nights is too slow to play. Wine I haven't tested much, but performance with it didn't seem to change much (games run, but too slow).
Too bad enabling KMS causes Firefox scrolling to be choppy. I just can't do without DRI2 anymore, so it's back to fglrx for now.
