Post subject: Building gallium r600 3D driver? Posted: 22.12.2010, 19:48
According to some sources the r600g driver has surpassed the r600c driver in functionality/compatibility and 3D speed for some applications. So I would like to try the gallium driver.
Would it be sufficient to only build the 3D driver or is DRI2 manditory? Is this possible to do with a fallback option to the r600c driver if I mess up? The Radeon build howto only says this about the 2D driver which I'm not interested in. If this is likely to blow up my system, can I install a throw away Aptosid on a separate partition without installing the grub and then update-grub from my current install? (Apparently menu.lst no longer exists and can't find the file that I would manualy have to edit)
