    So I'm using the latest graphics here with xubuntu 13.10, and I just noticed that after about 2-3 days of uptime. X server uses a ridiculous amount of memory.



    I'm not sure about the behaviour in stock is right now because it is unusable due to the freeze bug addressed in 9.2.3[1].

    Is anyone experiencing something like this?

    Had to downgrade today latest version kills launching Valve games (tested Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat)

    Ubuntu 13.10, kernel 3.13 (today)

    Running an old laptop with Radeon Mobility HD2600.

    They just launch, Steam icon changes to "in-game", then 5 seconds later you're no longer listed as in game. A window doesn't even open.

    Ran the instructions for purging the PPA and all works again.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0
    [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ] && sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
    Thanks for the suggestion but it seems that these packages are already installed in my system.

    Damn, I was hoping it would be fixed today.

    Odd that the latest poster has marked it as a duplicate of a bug from last year..? It only started happening yesterday, so something changed yesterday that broke it.

    Default Sandy Bridge, Corruption in Google Chrome

    Has anyone noticed an issue with Google Chrome, and last mesa/drivers updates? This started happening today. Disabling hardware accelration works around the problem.

    Default Remove oibaf ppa from 12.04

    Hello

    I installed oibaf ppa on 12.04 some time ago. I spotted now it's not updated anymore.
    How to remove packages? ppa-purge does nothing.

    Code:
    $ sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
    Updating packages lists
    PPA to be removed: oibaf graphics-drivers
    Warning:  Could not find package list for PPA: oibaf graphics-drivers
    If i add oibaf ppa (add-apt-repository ppaibaf/graphics-drivers) nothing chages

    Problem is that system takes this packages as locally installed.
    Synaptic would remove half of my system if i wanted to force other version.
    currently istalled version: 2.4.47+git1311070904.ebff7a~gd~p
    packages: xserver-xorg-[intel,ati,radeon,nouveau], libgl1-mesa[dev,dri,glx],libglm,libglapi-mesa,libgles2-mesa, libopenvg1-mesa,libxatracker1, mesa-common-dev

    What else can I do?

    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/oibaf*; sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:pali/graphics-drivers; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
    Pali handles the open source drivers for Ubuntu 12.04 now. If you upgrade to his PPA it should just replace the packages from Oibaf with his.

    The AA bug in Mesa has been patched and is in the latest packages in Oibaf's PPA. However, the issue with games using libudev.so like GoldSrc and Source games, the patch for that is still not mainlined into mesa yet.
