    that would be sweet if .32 kernel could get out before OS 11.2 dont think it will hit for Ubuntu, they can be stodgy about kernels released while in beta mode!


    if only 3d gets good enough for AMD to throw there wait behind the open source and develop that hand in hand and dropping fglrx, or the open source driver gets good enough from bits to replace propriety code and then Fglrx can be relased under GNU.


    then I can get into my hovercar and fly to the moon to the weekend home in a biosphere.........

    I'm kind of confused with the time line. Would some one point when will r300-r500 KMS going to be set to default for a kernel?

    Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support
    hmm I thought 3d support is possible with 2.6.31 kernel right now? Or are this then backports/distro patches that makes this work for this kernel version?

    One thing for sure is it's not backports. Newest kernel is 2.6.31.rc9 (not .32), so u can narrow it down.

    Right now for 6xx/7xx 3D you need drm code from agd5f's drm repository, r6xx-r7xx-3d branch. The mesa code has already been merged to master.

    As of 2.6.32, you won't need any special trees for 6xx/7xx 3D.

    Or alternatively airlied's kernel repo, drm-next branch?

    Default rv730 happiness in F12?

    So does this mean that F12 will support DRI2 and OpenGL for rv730 chips without having to resort to fglrx? I have a curious laptop/docking station combo that contains both a V5250 IGP and an HD4650 PCIe card, which is currently stuck using F10. However, since F10 will probably stop being supported once F12 is released, I strongly suspect that I will finally have to upgrade the laptop to F12. And that will mean "Bye bye, fglrx; hello, Mesa!" again for the purposes of playing WoW.

    Should I expect storms on the horizon...?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Yep, as of the last day or two that's probably the way to go.
