Re: [radeonhd] Re: Succeeded in compiling radeonhd 1.3.0 on first try!

Anyway, I would like to report a bug on Mesa about OpenGL support not quite
working on my Radeon HD 4850. I have read the "FreeDesktop Bugzilla User's
Guide" and have created an account there. Before I report a bug, can you
give me some advice?
1. The OpenGL corruption looks different on "radeon" versus "radeonhd".
Should I provide screenshots of applications with OpenGL disabled (no
corruption) and OpenGL enabled (with corruption)? If so, should I provide
screenshots of corruption with both "radeon" and "radeonhd" (since it
appears somewhat different)?
2. I have made some fullscreen screenshots already, but my desktop is
1920x1200 and the resulting files were rather large: between 600KB and
3.5MB. Is there a rule about not posting attachments that are too large, or
a limit on the size of attachments?
Not sure what the limits are off hand, but if you could just crop an
area to show the corruption that would be fine.
3. Should I make an effort to identify bugs that might be related, or
should I leave that to the developers? (I have already looked around, and
haven't seen anything particularly similar to my problems, but my search was
far from exhaustive.)
That's fine. We'll mark the bug as a duplicate if it ends up actually
OK, I have to work right now, but when I get home I'll get to work on this. I know about the Intel guide on how to file a good bug report on freedesktop.org, so I'll collect the info recommended there before making the report.
Since sending you this message, I discovered that running those apps with OpenGL enabled spams dmesg/kern.log with errors like this:
[drm:r600_cp_dispatch_texture] *ERROR* Invalid destination offset
Some Googling revealed that you have fixed this in xf86-video-ati in October (commit 5f84636...). My Debian Sid version of "radeon" is 6.12.3 from early September. I cloned the git repository of xf86-video-ati, and reading 'git log' I see that recent commits are starting to depend on X server 1.7+, but I currently am running 1.6.5. Therefore, before filing the report, I want to bump my X server up and build the latest "radeon" to see what affect your bugfix has. If I'm still having a problem, then I head over to freedesktop.org for a new bug report.
Thanks for the advice!
