As the title says I can't enable the Unity 3D support when I'm using open-source drivers (xorg-edgers). I have an xfx Radeon HD 6950 by the way.
If I install the proprietary 12.3 drivers from AMD it works, but I get poorer 2D performance than the open-source drivers and also I get some freezes and lock ups at random. So because of this I'm trying the open-source drivers and so far no issues at all, except this one.
Running this command
$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p shows this:
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300) OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.2 Not software rendered: no Not blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes GL vertex program: yes GL fragment program: yes GL vertex buffer object: yes GL framebuffer object: yes GL version is 1.4+: yes Unity 3D supported: no
And this command
$ lspci -nn | grep VGA shows:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cayman PRO [Radeon HD 6950] [1002:6719]
So, is this normal? Do I need to go back to proprietary drivers to enable Unity 3D?
If anyone can give me help, I'll much appreciate it.
