I can't seem to be able to turn off vsync on my machine. SwapBuffersWait is set to off in my xorg.conf and my xorg log says it's disabled. I even set vsync off in driconf. Still, glxgears reports vsync is on. Is there something else I need to switch? Ubuntu Maverick, xorg-edgers (r300g), 22.214.171.124.
Well .drirc does nothing on my squeeze system with updated libdrm (and rest of the oss stack). Looks that it is somehow incompatible. Maybe i heed to check a system with newer libdrm by default. Basically even natty has a too old libdrm to compile every mesa driver - maybe not for ati, but if you want to compile every driver it wants 2.4.24+. Debian sid would be new enough however... I also checked some basic packages contents on natty, it still has got a ia32-libs package in universe, but i don't get why the libdrm libs are at a differnet position compared to debian sid. The problem is that you need those to compile 32 bit mesa libs on a 64 bit system. natty however would in theory allow to forget about ia32-libs(-dev) and use multiarch single lib packages. Did anybody try that? I do not really like just to replace libdrm code with self compiled libs because it usally affects other packages like plymouth too. Thats better handled with correct packageing. Btw. ia32-libs-dev on sid is outdated and does not contain the files from libdrm-dev (just like on natty, thats why i needed a hack to extract em...)
