I'd say yum is a little slower at search (and a hell of a lot slower if you use it with bash-completion), but it also has finer-grained dependency tracking than your typical DEB repositories. AFAIK, this isn't a property of the programs, but of how the repositories are set up.

A Mesa 7.9 pre-release git snapshot was pulled into Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" yesterday. The package version is mesa 7.9~git20100909-0ubuntu1

Thanks for info.

Yes, it is working fine on my old ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128Mb (R350), running the desktop edition of Maverick. I haven't tried any games yet, but glxgears runs fine, and continues to run fine if I drag it's window around the screen.
Evergreen (Radeon HD5xxx) 3D acceleration is still in at an early stage though. If you want anything more than just mode-setting on an Evergreen you might need to use ATI's proprietary Catalyst driver instead.
