Works so far for me, no textrels, with a radeon. Built with: System uname: 2.6.11-hardened-r13 i686 Mobile Intel(R) Pentium(R) III CPU - M 1200MHz -3dfx -3dnow -bitmap-fonts -cjk -debug +dlloader -dmx +doc +font-server +hardened -insecure-drivers -ipv6 -minimal +mmx +nls +opengl +pam -sdk +sse -static +truetype-fonts +type1-fonts (-uclibc) +xprint +xv For info, the modules with textrels currently in 6.8.2-r1 are: /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/modules/dri/ /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/ so in order to perform a useful test, make sure DRI is enabled (which means no xinerama, although with radeons you can have mergedfb - check the Xorg.0.log to see DRI being started ok). Although the source of textrels is the same for all the dri modules (I think), it'll be useful to have reports for more than one of the DRI modules. Kev. -- gentoo-hardened@g.o mailing list
