You may have noticed, other than the usual updates, I backported from Ubuntu 14.04 updated free codecs (opus and opus-tools, libvpx), s2tc fixing a bug, final llvm-3.4, intel-vaapi and, as a holiday present, supertuxkart 0.8.1.
I'm researching radeon vram behavior for my thesis, and I'd need a wide variety of data. I have a set of patches to gather this, and it would be really helpful if they could be included in your PPA for a few months (until the end of March).
They do nothing unless the user sets the R600_DEBUG env var to the new value. There's no bug or perf risk, and I can keep them updated against master for this time. Would it be possible to include them?
Is sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental still required for i915 hardware? I have a Dell Latitude D610 with a 915GM graphics chip, and Lubuntu 13.10 + Kernel 3.13 (today's daily).
I tried LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/dri-alternates glxgears -info but it failed to load two different drivers (something 915 and something like swar), and glxgears was really slow, along with no direct rendering. I ran that dri-experiemental command too. glxgears on its' own works fine.
