Can't enable Gallium3D on R700 (4650)
I can't enable Gallium3D on my system. System Specs:
Distro: Ubuntu 10.10 (Linux Mint 10)
xorg-edgers PPA added, Mesa 7.11-git, xf86-video-ati 6.13.99
When I add Option "ForceGallium" "True" in xorg.conf, Xorg log says Option "ForceGallium" not used.
Another question: How can I install 2.6.38? Latest kernel build in kernel ppa is 2.6.37-999
Any help will be appreciated.
you should build mesa with --enable-gallium-r600 to activate gallium driver, and you don't need to use that option in xorg.conf.
Thanks. Turns out that the newest mesa/radeon in xorg-edgers lost that option. However, I installed the packages from xorg-edgers/radeon and gallium was enabled by default.

Remove /ppa and leave just /radeon. Or better yet, remove both of them, then add /radeon and you should have gallium on by default. Tried that yesterday evening, it was working fine. Tried it with Penumbra Overture, huge performance gain.

Exciting times ahead for radeon oss drivers.
I set up Gallium using the /ppa. I couldn't find any examples of an xorg.conf for this, and I found that getting the syntax wrong causes X to refuse to start. This /etc/xorg.conf works for me:
