Looks like that it is getting ready, eg the page says
* Tagged a new snapshot "the_perfect_frag" of r300_driver. I cannot find visible faults with any levels in Quake3 or PPRacer. Also one can now list all the issues in the driver that need solving.
* The following cards are known to work ("well" means good enough to play some games, not perfect GL compliance):
o Radeon 9600 (including Radeon Mobility M10) - works well, no lockups
o Radeon 9800 - works, but locks up in some applications. Might be aggravated by mouse movement and/or use of merged framebuffer.
o Radeon X800 - works well no lockups.
I would like to try it, but I don't know where to start. Do I need to
compile a kernel module, or recompile X, or something else?
