I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I'd greatly appreciate some help installing Gallium3D. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 (e1505) laptop with an ATI Mobility x1400 graphics card. My glxinfo info is as follows:
I've read a great many forum posts, both here and on the ubuntu forums and have no idea what to do. Each posts seems to assume a great deal of knowledge I simply don't have. What repo/ppa do I use? Do I have to use a different kernel? Can anyone outline a simple install method?Code:OpenGL vendor string: DRI R300 Project OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R300 (RV515 7145) 20090101 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL DRI2 OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 7.7.1 OpenGL extensions:
Any help or links would be appreciated.
or do I git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa
It's too confusing with conflicting advice and some of it is out of date. To be honest I don't have the time to try different methods, be forced to reinstall Ubuntu and try again. I would just like to know which method to use. I'm freely admitting my ignorance. I just can't trawl through countless forum posts (for example the thread you mention is 16 pages long) which talk about things like loading kernel modules, different versions of X and all that I just don't understand.
It's right in front of you.

You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa:xorg-edgers/radeon to your system's Software Sources. (Read about installing)
Step 1: On the PPA's overview page, look for the heading that reads Adding this PPA to your system. Make a note of the PPA's location, which looks like:
Step 2: Open a terminal and enter:
Run apt-get upgrade.
BTW: The freshgraphics ppa is pretty old by now. It hasn't been updated since April.
Thanks for the link to the correct ppa tormod. As rob2687 points out I completely didn't get that it was the link you were pointing me to. For some stupid reason I thought it just a link in your signature. I added the ppa and updated. glxinfo is now
