r6xx/r7xx compiz!

Just got it working :)

It’s still pretty slow due to using memcpy for buffer swaps, but that should get fixed up soon.

mesa from git master, drm kernel modules from my r6xx-r7xx-3d drm branch.

    I wonder how many more minutes before Phoronix have an article up.

    I bet they have at least 5 links in the story to other articles and stress the slowness :P

    I follow with interest the developments in the graphics infrastructure world, and Phoronix is certainly the easiest way to follow the news, even if it only gathers info from blog posts! :-p

    Anyway, thanks Alex for your work! You have lots of people interesting in the work you are leading at AMD/ATI. Keep up the good work!

    This is too good to be true :D

    Can you reveal what your patch adds? :) Is it OpenGL support?

    I tried installing your latest -git drivers on my PC (Radeon HD3870, RV670) with dual-head configuration (2x 1680×1050). They seem to be working, according to glxinfo and Xorg.0.log, direct rendering is enabled. However, glxgearsfails to start with
    Mesa: Initializing x86-64 optimizations
    Mesa: 3Dnow! detected
    drmRadeonCmdBuffer: -22
    and compiz reports:
    Trying again with indirect rendering:
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
    Checking for non power of two support: present.
    Checking for Composite extension: present.
    Checking screen 1Comparing resolution (3360×1050) to maximum 3D texture size (2048): Failed.

    Is there any way to increase the maximum 3d texture size?

    Kernel is 2.6.30.4, debian squeeze, DRM modules and libdrm are from your git tree.

  9. falcon Says:

    Sorry, I forgot to delete the old (vanilla) DRM modules. glxgears works now. Framerate is about 35fps. However, compiz still fails to start.

  10. agd5f Says:

    make sure the xserver is picking up the new 3d driver since compiz uses an indirect context.
