I'm doing all my builds as RPMs so I know there is only ever one version
there at a time.

I don't think my libdrm needs updating (2.3.0) and I'm pretty sure that
everything was built in the correct order.

I'm using glproto 1.4.7 but have also tried 1.4.8 (heard it's buggy tho'?)

I've got the standard AIGLX patches too which have been linked several
times in this thread.

I'm rebuilding mesa and xserver from git, but as other users have
reported that it is still broken I'm not holding out much/any hope!

Thanks for posting tho' :)
