Currently, PPC architecture intentionally has DRI disabled.  The PPC
builds are intended mainly for IBM pSeries/iSeries platforms where
stability of the X server is of utmost importance, and OpenGL hardware
acceleration is of little value in comparison.

Now however, with more and more people desiring a Fedora/PPC
official distro (including many Red Hatters too), and the majority
of potential Fedora/PPC users being Mac users, we will need to
explore making a separate DRI enabled PPC build of X specifically
for Fedora Core, while keeping DRI disabled for our official
RHEL4/PPC builds for IBM server hardware.

In the mean time, the spec file has this conditionalized to be
easy to enable and rebuild.  Fedora/PPC users wanting DRI support
in the mean time may want to rebuild the src.rpm until we have
official rpms with DRI enabled in the future.

If official packages will have DRI in the not too far future, I am
willing to wait for that.


Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2004-12-02 12:21:04 UTC
OK, it seems like there are DRI modules in the current rawhide
packages. I haven't gotten them to work, yet, but that's another
story. Thanks.
