That's not correct, my previous laptop also had a Radeon 7500
Mobility and I had hw acceleration in X. Upstream developers
state this, too (7500 Mobility has an r100 chip):

I would suggest you to give a look at this:

That is the very same bug report you are responding to. Probably not
what you meant to refer to.


Sorry for the error, i was referring to:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=619022
It's a bug opened by me, in which there is a link to a bug i opened
upstream, where there are informations that have lead me to reply here.



But you have a rather new i945, so this can be unrelated.


Yes, different chips have different problems.


Yes, although to me they look suspiciously similar.


Please don't reply to bugs unless you are a maintainer or have real
information to add.


I'm sorry that you think that my reply contains no info and it's
useless. My intention was the opposite: to help Debian and the submitter
to solve the bug and, indeed, i believed my reply could be useful to
this. And, i assure you, my time is as precious as yours, and it's not
my intention to waste neither your nor mine nor everyone's else.


Ciao.

Cesare.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks! (For reference, the link was to a backport of
v2.6.39-rc2~3^2~13, drm/i915: Fix tiling corruption from pipelined
fencing, 2011-03-17.)

If you find time to test a recent kernel from sid or experimental
(which would include the fix), that would be excellent.

Thanks for catching this.
