    Can someone test wayland 1.2 packages from that PPA with older mesa packages with wayland enabled (or the Ubuntu official ones)?
    When someone can confirm it doesn't break anything I'll backport it in my PPA and enable again wayland-egl in mesa.

    Thanks.

    I'll try to give it a go tonight or tomorrow morning. I'll tell you how the thing goes.

    Well, wait for now, there is a bug in 1.2 package, I already pinged ricotz, hopefully he will fix it soon.

    Ha ha ha, didn't read you until now.

    Okay, I have tried libwayland 1.2 from Rico's ppa archive. It seems some file got moved from one package to another in comparison with 1.0 (I had to dpkg -i --force-all because one file was contained by two different packages), but I did not get any other problem.

    I tried libwayland 1.2 with your ppa build of yesterday and with xorg-edgers latest build (mesa 9.2, which contained libwayland-egl.so, so it had been compiled with wayland support). With your ppa I did not get any problem. With xorg-edgers I did not get any problem either, but mesa run on llvm. The tests were made using KDE 4.10 which does not require the wayland requirement to run, and in order to check if mesa was working properly I launched both glxgears and steam.

    I'm not sure if this is helpful enough or if you needed another combinations of packages (e.g.: KDE 4.11 + xorg-edgers + libwayland 1.2).

    Regards

    That was the bug i was referring to .
    It would be nice if you could test KDE 4.11, and what do you mean with mesa run on llvm? llvmpipe?

    Anyway I'll probably set up a test PPA next week, so that it can be easily tested.

    Yep, sorry, I was referring to llvmpipe. Even though I installed libglamor and xserver-glamor after downgrading to xorg-edgers ppa mesa reverted to using llvmpipe (which, by the way is quite slow for some games, such as Crusader Kings II which I tried to see if everything was working OK, even though my machine has a Bulldozer FX-8150...).

    With regard to that problem with packages, don't worry at all, it was easy to sort out.

    I will try that combination of packages with KDE 4.11. I had not tried it yesterday because, as I stated in a previous post, reverting the Kubuntu beta ppa is not clean and involves deleting several packages by hand. In any case I will try it and report.

    Regards

    It did not work. KDE 4.11 still could not load the libraries. So I had to revert to KDE 4.10. Even though, I think some of Rico's ppa packages may have been updated and broken something (for example, vt's not working properly) and that may have accounted for some of the problem. So probably setting an additional ppa with wayland 1.2 + mesa packages could be a good way to isolate this problem and see if it works OK (of course, only if you have time to do it!). I'll stick to KDE 4.10 until the thing's worked out.

    How do I get the R600 SB optimizations working? I'm running Mint 15 btw.

    @Dukenukemx: it will be default soon.

    @jsa1983 (and everyone with the KDE-wayland problem): tried fixing wayland installation problem in my test PPA, but it still doesn't work. I'd suggest subscribing or commenting on upgrade to wayland 1.2 bug report and mesa wayland bug report so that eventually 1.2.0 can be in Ubuntu and I can backport an official and hopefully working version or mesa can be fixed with older wayland.

    @pandev92: I think it get fixed in current git, update mesa package from the PPA.

    @mmstick: corruption on radeonsi should be fixed also.

    I think you need at least Mesa 9.2. You can check your current version by opening a terminal and typing glxinfo. There you should get a few lines which read more or less like this:

    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV710
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-7568a89 raring-oibaf-ppa)"

    There you can see your mesa version. If it is lower than 9.2 then you will need to install a newer version (e.g. by adding oibaf's ppa).

    If your mesa version is higher or equal to 9.2, then you can pass the following argument before the name of the app:

    R600_DEBUG=sb

    For example, if you want to launch steam with that, open a terminal and type: R600_DEBUG=sb steam

    If everything works ok, you can make that argument permanent by adding it to your ~/.profile file or for example, for KDE users, to a file with execution permission under ~/.kde/env/ (in my case, for example, r600g_optimize.sh).

    I hope this helps.

    Regards
