View Full Version : Libdrm version on Fedora 10
26th October 2008, 10:10 PM
I've just noticed that the libdrm package is on 2.4.0 version (on Fedora 10 beta preview, with all current updates until the moment of this post), but I can only see a libdrm2.3.0.so file on /usr/lib. Does anyone know why this difference? Thank you in advance.

Yes: the 2.4.0 DRM had not been officially released when the latest F10 packages were built. The Fedora package is manually patched with (most of) the latest 2.4.0 development changes applied. Hence, it's tagged as version 2.4.0. Internally, however, the libs still carry the 2.3.0 tags.
Since mesa/drm 2.4.0 was officially released 12 days ago (after the latest Fedora package), I would expect to see an "official" version 2.4.0 in F10 final release.

Thank you for the quick answer Hlingler, now it looks clear to me.
By the way, does anyone know if I should expect some performance gain on an Intel X3100 with this new drm version, or at least OpenGL 2.0 implemented? I'm still getting low performance (compared to Windows) and some rendering errors (which I think it's due to the lack of OpenGL 2.0, as informed by glxinfo) with this version.

Both the Intel 2D driver (xorg-x11-drv-i810) and 3D driver (included in mesa-dri-drivers) are getting heavy attention at dri.freedesktop.org. One can always hope....
