Bug#389404: [savage] savage DRI driver does not work with X.org 7.1.1

Martin Steigerwald
Package: xorg
Version: 1:7.1.0-1
Severity: normal

Hello, Savage DRI driver does not work with X.org 7.1.1, it works
okay with 7.0.22.

With 7.1.1 I the window that glxgears opens remains black. glxinfo
still shows "Direct Rendering: Yes". Also with supertux in GL mode
the screen stays blank. Both consume all of the available CPU
power while running.

AFAIK this is an upstream bug. It has been discussed on the moderated
mailing list [hidden email]:

>From what I understand this is the bug in question:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=195851

There seems to be a patch available that fixes this and some
other savage problems:
http://probo.probo.com/pipermail/savage40/2006-September/000512.html

According Alex Deucher who did the patch it is sent to upstream already
and will be contained in the next version of the savage DRI driver:
http://probo.probo.com/pipermail/savage40/2006-September/000513.html

So it would be nice to have that version, preferably in time Etch...
I am willing to test any savage driver package for stability issues ;)

Regards, Martin
