    Default R500 DRI Support Goes Widespread

    Phoronix: R500 DRI Support Goes Widespread

    AMD's Alex Deucher has taken the Mesa r500test branch maintained by David Airlie for the open-source ATI R500 work and has pushed it into Mesa's r500-support branch. This branch is for those looking to play with the initial open-source R500 DRI (Direct Rendering Infrastructure) support...

    Default

    Further prolly. There's some dicey stuff with textures to be able to do compiz I think, which may cause some issues with the newer cards. I recall they had some difficulty getting compiz to work on r300s a while ago, but that was before docs were released.

    I'll take a wild guess and say compiz may work in a month or two. I'm hoping for a fully featured OpenGl 2.1 driver by the end of the year!
