Re: ATi Open drivers are coming of age... :)
An update on this. I haven't got around to test the xorg-edgers ppa yet but last week I gave Chakra a test run from a live CD and guess what, 3D performance was fine! Chakra 0.3.0 runs on Mesa 7.7.1, Linux kernel 2.6.35 and xorg-server 1.7.7.

Then I thought it could be because of KMS, because in PCLOS KMS isn't active, but I then found out that Chakra has KMS activated so now it's back to square one.
Could it be a problem with the packaging (in either Ubuntu or Debian) of the R300 driver? Can't see what else it could be?
