Default openchrome in portage

Hi folks,

xf86-video-openchrome is now in portage. So there is no need to keep
the overlay. I deleted it and removed the "source" line
in /etc/make.conf. I have the following line in make.conf:
VIDEO_CARDS="openchrome via"

Now I get this:
uwix ~ # emerge --pretend --verbose xorg-server

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Why on earth is it excluding openchrome?

Uh, I am on ~x86, so this is not the problem.

Because the xorg-server ebuild does not support openchrome. yet. Just
add openchrome to world until it does

Well, didn't look into the ebuild. You are right. Now, why and how did
it work with the overlay?

I know nothing about that overlay, so I'm just guessing. Perhaps the
overlay had a patched xorg-server?

Because xorg-server doesn't list it in VIDEO_CARDS. For
the time being, you need to install xf86-video-openchrome
"manually". I bet that an upcoming rev/rel of xorg-server
will fix this "problem".

The openchrome tarball from the overlay is identical to the one in
portage. Actually, the overlay was just moved into portage I guess.
Anyway, any patch in the overlay tarball must then also be in the
portage one.

Alright, I stop here. It's just something puzzling me - and I don't
like that without understanding it. ;-)

BTW, KDE4 is far smoother now. Animations are faster. Still, no shiny
composite effects of KDE without crashing the whole session. Guess, I
have to ask the openchrome folks whether they have any ETA for this.

Another thing is that the latest MESA release is quite old. They used
to have a new release every 2 - 3 months. This might be related as
well. Unfortunately, they don't have any kind of roadmap on their web
site. So one doesn't know when to expect a new version.

Yes, I know: Get a decent video subsystem. Not that easy. The Intel
chips (most probably enough for my purpose) only reside on mobos. ATI
drivers are in the process of catching up and will probably be there
in six or so months' time - but they aren't now. Nvidia, yes nvidia.
Would rather try to avoid them. So not too many options for me short
of throwing the whole mobo out.
