    After that:
    1) remove this line: ctx->VertexProgram._MaintainTnlProgram = GL_TRUE;
    2) remove this line: }
    3) add these two lines:
    } else
    ctx->VertexProgram._MaintainTnlProgram = GL_TRUE;

    Four changes only.
    Good luck.
    SUCCESS!

    Code:
    2566 frames in 5.0 seconds = 513.188 FPS
    2562 frames in 5.0 seconds = 512.359 FPS
    2568 frames in 5.0 seconds = 513.499 FPS
    2556 frames in 5.0 seconds = 511.035 FPS
    3502 frames in 5.0 seconds = 700.379 FPS
    4497 frames in 5.0 seconds = 899.288 FPS
    Performance is at least doubled. Thank you very much! Your instructions were very good.

    My next question is how do I lock this so that synaptic or the update-manager does not install a "new" r300 driver wiping out this one?

    Sorry for my English..

    I compiled mesa_7_4 but don't have any file called r300_dri.so on /lib

    Need some extra package before compile ?

    thanks!

    Re: Xpress 200M is very slow

    I haven't followed this process as I don't own any ATI hardware, but... come on, guys. There's no need to compile from vanilla source, use the deb sources!

    Code:
    $ apt-get source mesa
    When you edit the source, you can build your own packages using something like:
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg-buildpackage
    The advantage is a much cleaner system - since you're installing deb packages, you can easily roll-back or upgrade packages in the future, and you won't have to track potentially hundreds of misplaced files placed in the wrong path (which can happen if you don't set the --prefix flags properly in the vanilla source's configure scripts).

    It's my fault!

    just run

    make realclean
    ./autogen.sh

    Installed all dependencies and run

    make

    And the r300_dri.so come to /lib

    but,

    279 frames in 5.0 seconds = 55.673 FPS
    251 frames in 5.0 seconds = 50.173 FPS

    AND got suspend to ram (and waking up again!) to work by removing ALL video quirks. They are now specified in a HAL fdi file, but my machine was not included in the file provided. I added a suitable matching protocol and set power_management.quirk.none to true. The file is 20-video-quirk-pm-hp.fdi in /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/

    Thanks for your reply, but after trying your suggestion this laptop still will not awake from standby, even though lshal reports: power_management.quirk.none = true. If you have anymore suggestions, I'm willing to try anything at this point.

    By the way you cannot lock this package unless you build the ubuntu (debian) way.
    As mentioned by psyke83.

    Code:
    1) cd to your source directory (or where you want to build)
    2) apt-get source mesa
    3) sudo apt-get build-dep mesa
    4) patch the file
    5) cd mesa-7.4
    6) dpkg-buildpackage
    7) install debs
    then you can lock the version in synaptic and will have all the ubuntu patches.
    System Specs:
    Desktop: E6420 (@3.4GHz, Water Cooled), 4GB DDR2, 1.6 TB HDs, X1950 Pro (OS Driver),
    Dual Boot Win7/Jaunty, 19" 4:3 + 24" 16:9.
    Laptop: Toshiba L30, T2080 Pentium Dual Core, 2 GB DDR2, 250GB Hard disk.

    Thanks, psyke83. Since I hurry to check the patch I even did not think about the Ubuntu way. I have very limited experience with compiling from sources.

    What ATI card do you have? This patch may work only for R300 cards.

    Code:
    root@turion:~# lspci | grep VGA
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200M]
    I think my VGA Card is diferent..

    Code:
    root@turion:~# lshw -C display
      *-display UNCLAIMED     
           description: VGA compatible controller
           product: RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200M]
           vendor: ATI Technologies Inc
           physical id: 5
           bus info: pci@0000:01:05.0
           version: 00
           width: 32 bits
           clock: 66MHz
           capabilities: pm bus_master cap_list
           configuration: latency=66 mingnt=8
    Everything works fine before the update to jaunty..
    Now I'm not able to active special effects..

    Code:
    root@turion:~# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
        Device        "Configured Video Device"
        DefaultDepth    24
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
        Load    "glx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
        Driver    "ati"
    EndSection
    what's wrong with my VGA Card?
