Thread: Radeon Gallium on ubuntu

  1. #1

    Default Radeon Gallium on ubuntu

    Hi.

    I would like to experiment with gallium for radeon. So, does anybody knows if there are available packages with gallium drivers for lucid?

    Else (sorry for the newbie questions) I guess I have to build everything from GIT. What parameters should I pass to configure scripts so that everything is Ok? Also, in order to use gallium I have to edit my xorg.conf to load radeong?

    Thank you.

    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa
    ./autogen.sh
    ./configure --enable-gallium-radeon --with-state-trackers=dri,glx
    cd mesa/lib/gallium/
    ln -s radeong_dri.so r300_dri.so
    export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=<PATH TO>/mesa/lib/gallium/

    the applications you start from this console will use gallium now. check with glxinfo for GL2.1

    AFAIK there are no packages yet.

    So for r600 does this line change to:?
    Code:
    ln -s radeong_dri.so r600_dri.so

    AFAIK, no work has started on the r600 gallium driver. It's only the r300g driver that's usable, and I believe it covers archs up to r500.

    The git pull ***** command doesn't seem to work on Ubuntu Karmic. Any tips for a git non-expert?

    Nevermind, I just used the git gui to pull it. Imagine having to drop into a gui to get something done

    That's because it's supposed to be git clone, not git pull.

    So is radeong just common code between r300g and the forthcoming r600g?

    It's probably winsys. AFAIK it works with r600, but only running softpipe.

    glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    do_ioctls: Failed to get GB pipe count, error number -22
    R500, Mesa 7.7

    Somebody mentioned 7.7 r300 gallium should be usable. I guess not
