Bug#413054: Software Fallback with ctx->Line.SmoothFlag

Package: xserver-xorg-video-ati
Version: 1:6.6.3-2
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream


it seems that the driver is not supporting something that causes it to
turn off hardware acceleration. I assume this is an upstream issue, but
I’d like it to be tracked here, if you don’t mind. 

I’m observing it with google earth:

$ googleearth
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
File r300_render.c function r300Fallback line 428
Software fallback:ctx->Line.SmoothFlag

I think it used to work around August with the versions in unstable,

If this is not the ati driver, but the mesa package, then please excuse
my mis-filing and re-assign the bug.

Greetings and thanks,
