    I'm assuming that's the reason my display is garbled after the last update?

The libgl1-mesa-dri-gallium is an extra, optional package with gallium drivers. The libGL search path is set up so that the gallium drivers are loaded if the -gallium package is installed (Robert's clever idea).

    Note that the -gallium package in xorg-edgers also ship nouveau and intel gallium drivers.
    It would be nice to compile swrastg with llvm support. It needs the --enable-gallium-llvm configure flag and added Build-Depends on libffi-dev and llvm.
    I tested it on my Core Duo and found no regression wrt to classic swrastg, and it is indeed a *lot* faster, as noticed by phoronix articles:

    It might be even the reason llvmpipe renders garbage as is in this article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=ODIxMw

    That's the usual price for testing non-stable branches.

    Is there a bug report, where we can track it and see when a fix is available?

    Thanks.

    Thanks,

    I assume next mesa build will have the fix. I will try the -gallium pack later tonight.

    I tried latest -gallium pack, it is not a full screen corruption, however, the screen is still showing corruption artifacts.

    May I ask, gallium is still at v0.4, is there a time frame for official v1.0 release?

    I don't think the version really matters, it's just a number, it doesn't mean anything.
