Hi Herminio,

This what I have done so far and I plan to do :

1. I have downloaded the source code for libgl1-mesa-dri
now the version I have is 10.3.2 in the threads it look like this patch was applied to 10.1.1 will that be an issue?

2. I have not done a patch before so I am following the instruction here <http://jungels.net/articles/diff-patch-ten-minutes.html>. If anyone has objects please let me know.

3. After I applycj the pat I just compile and install the driver or should I uninstall the current one before I install this one?
I'd follow a different route, the one I followed to test patches against drivers. Build yourself a patched debian package. That way you build from source with eventually other useful debian configurations and patches. You get a "drop in" replacement.

I followed these instruction:

- create a file with the patch: mach64.patch
- install dpkg-dev: apt-get install dpkg-dev
- get and extract the package source: apt-get source xf86-video-mach64
- cd into the directory
- apply the patch: patch -p1 -i ../mach64.patch
- compile and create the binary package: dpkg-buildpackage -nc -us -uc
- install the package: dpkg -i ../xf86-video-mach64_n.n.n_powerpc.deb

With some adaptation in the filenames, I hope they can be useful for you too!
