    Phoronix: Eight Reasons You Can Enjoy Mesa 8.0

    While OpenGL 3.0 / GLSL 1.30 support in Mesa 8.0 has been what's talked about lately for this open-source graphics library to be released next month, there's a lot of other improvements too in Mesa 8.0 for those of you using the open-source graphics drivers under Linux...

    I had exactly the same thoughts...


    Edit:
    Still remember titles like: "Holy crap! You can use xvmc with r600g!"
    Even though it was obvious that xvmc won't save the world. I guess recession hits everybody sooner or later...

    I think he's found a buyer for Phoronix or at least some part of his businesses

    Snb doesn't support Linux when it comes to accelerated encode.

    Well in mainline libva (-intel-driver) there is support for it. No other branch needed. Check vainfo/avcenc with latest code. For debian (and maybe ubuntu, but did not test there):

    Hi Kano.
    I was referring to this http://software.intel.com/en-us/foru...ad.php?t=77855

    BTW, do you happen to know if Fedora ships the libva driver? It seems as though they would since it is the upstream, but they may view it as tainted.

    This is what I see running Fedora 16:

    Well that is not the latest code of course, but the last (1.0.14) which might integrate the intel driver by default in that package. Since libva 1.0.15 the intel driver is seperate. You can be sure i will not search updated fedora packages for you nor will i write a script to update it there. but you can try it of course.

    I've yum'd the same, but I dismissed it since it was calling itself a library which made me think it was for developing libva enabled apps (outside of using a framework), but since you posted this I checked the actual contents of the rpm and found it (libva-freeworld) does in fact include the i965 driver, so, thanks!
    libva.rpm doesn't seem to provide i965, thus it doesn't seem to do anything useful.
