    Default ATI Gallium3D + Wine Is Bettered A Bit

    Phoronix: ATI Gallium3D + Wine Is Bettered A Bit

    If the impressive rate of Gallium3D improvements was not enough, there's more good news for those of you running ATI Radeon R300-R500 graphics cards (up through the Radeon X1000 series) with the open-source Gallium3D driver: the Wine graphics support just got a tiny bit better. Committed to the Mesa repository this afternoon is support for the GL_ARB_depth_clamp OpenGL extension within the Mesa state tracker and as of right now it's hooked-up for use by the R300g driver...

    You should be having 2.1 if you're using the Gallium driver. Unless it has different levels of support depending on the GPU?

    But you're not using the Gallium driver then, it only supports r300-r500.

    He has an R700, there isn't a working Gallium driver for those yet.
    The classic Mesa driver only supports OpenGL 2.0 for all R600 and R700 cards.

    marek also fixed an FBO related problem, which caused problems with Wine:

    Right now, the biggest issue with running games in Wine with r300g is bug 29137. If it can be fixed, r300g seems to be at about the same level of support in Wine as i965.

    The progress of r300g is pretty astonishing!

    And this is an WINE bug not an Driver bug.

    Well, sort of. A good driver would be able to better handle the hardware limitations that are being hit by WINE. Even if it is doing things in a way that isn't very reasonable.
