Possibly with the aid of restricted driver management? See full activity log. Very thanks again for your help. See full activity log. I am using Ubuntu since Warty successfully on my Desktop. Email me about changes to this bug report. Can someone confirm these instructions from a fresh er install, and, more specifically, post a definitive list for apt-get prior to building?

Thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu.

mach64 driver for X

However the inclusion did not happen anyway. My laptop runs exceptionally better overall after completing this procedure. As for additional tips Beta freeze has already begun so I doubt it’ll get into this cycle.

However, I really am hoping the DRM modules were all that needed to be compiled The best course of action would likely be to lobby the dri. Of course, there are security concerns with binary blobs, but it’s much easier to install some of those!

Is hardware accel even possible with Mach64 chipset?

I’ve created a script that may help many users. None, the status of the bug is updated manually. The upstream task is marked as fixed because it was pointing to a security issue blocking the inclusion of mach64 into the main drm repository.

And yes it works great, even not the direct rendering! Comment on this change optional. To manage notifications about this bug go to: Ben Collins ben-collins on I’ve grayed the script.

I confess to being surprised that this kernel module you speak of is not already packaged by someone. I’m sorry, but I no longer own this laptop to test if DRI is enabled.

But Xorg seems not want interact with DRM interface: I can’t really give a timeframe to driver completion – my laptop went dead several months ago and it’s no longer something that affects me directly. You will, however, see a fairly drastic boost in more ‘general’ OpenGL functionality. Find More Posts by paulsm4.

So we can conclude that in every future distribution, which uses the upstream xorg, mach64 dri will be automatically working? To reopen the bug report you can click on the current status, under the Status column, and change the Status back to “New”.


Dapper reached EOL, please see this document for currently supported Ubuntu releases: To help improve the state of this bug see: Ben this is just a “close with next upstream release bug”. I’ve never been told by anyone to install, apart from to fix glxinfo, which I fixed myself, without an install.

Also, I found the mach64 source module was just added to intrepid, which looks promising: Status changed to ‘Confirmed’ because the bug affects multiple users. In this mac64, as many people is affected by the bug, the probability that it will be fixed is bigger. Matt Hoy, I’m sorry that it doesn’t work for you.
