List: openbsd-tech Subject: xserver and Mesa updated From: Matthieu Herrb
Date: 2008-11-02 17:10:45 Hi, I just committed in xenocara two updates to xserver 1.5.2 and to Mesa 7.2. There are 2 things that change from a configuration point of view after these updates, if you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file: - remove the 'RgbPath' line in the 'ServerFlags' section. It's no longer recognized as an option. (Xorg now uses an internal RGB database). - the xf86-video-i810 driver for older intel chipsets is no longer provided, since it's not compatible with the new libpciaccess way to access PCI configuration space. You should switch to the 'intel' driver. In case you find problems with this update, please report them here. Don't forget to include a precise description of the problem and a /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from the failing server. -- Matthieu Herrb

Mesa 7.2 defaults to sync-to-vblank for intel chips in an attempt to avoid "tearing" in the display. In this mode, OpenGL drawing is synchronised to the refresh rate of your monitor and thus is capped at that rate. If for some reason this bothers you, you may circumvent this by either setting 'vblank_mode=0' in your environment or use driconf (in ports) to configure this option.
