    This is the only thing that xorg-edgers currently lacks and it would be a real plus for your ppa.
    Unfortunately I am still on 32 bit so it would be difficult to test it. I may have a look at it anyway if I have some time in the future.

    Default Updates

    It's been awhile since the last status update so here it is:

    Mesa
    • nouveau Gallium3d driver now installed in the default libgl1-mesa-dri package - no need to install libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental anymore
    • added VDPAU and XvMC support (pipe-video branch) for r300/r600/nouveau drivers in the libg3dvl-mesa package
    • 2D/Xv/3D support for AMD Radeon HD 6950/6970 Cayman graphics cards
    • Ivybridge support
    • r300g bug fixes
    • other crash fixes (especially llvm related)


    EDIT: VDPAU and XvMC are also supported on r300 now! Unfortunately XvMC doesn't work (myssing symbol) and VDPAU is slower than Xv.

    Just want to say thanks for these packages! Makes it's much easier to get the latest (which also happen to fix a couple of bugs I had with default Ubuntu packages) drivers.

    I'm using a Radeon 9550, which is RV350 based with a slower clock than other cards (I wanted something passively cooled and wasn't too fussed about 3D at the time), and thanks to VDPAU, I can now watch 720p video without too many problems!

    Edit: OTOH that may be due to using mplayer instead of VLC...

    Interesting, I tested mplayer also. Maybe VPDAU/XvMC is faster than Xv when using a "slow" CPU and a "fast" GPU. Anyway this is still initial r300 support so it may improve later on.

    hi now with my hd4770 and your "oibaf" ppa heroes of newerth works perfect with the radeon driver

    my last try with an hd5670 fail completely.

    i think the r600g radeon driver is much better on hd4000 cards than hd5000 cards-.

    It is, or at least was, working fine on my 5670. Do file bug reports.

    Question Package Tags

    Forgive my stupidity, but what's the difference between the ~m/~n tags on the package names?
