It does indeed work, if I install just Mesa-from-git with the RC2 server
built against 6.5.2.
I find that the RC2 and RC3 servers are not even close to being able to
build against Mesa-from-git. For example the directory
src/mesa/array_cache no longer exists and src/mesa/swrast causes the
first build problem after that.
Given that the problem is reported and understood, and not a flaw in
X.org, for now I think I will go back to 6.5.2 and RC2, at least until
the screen-blanking gets fixed. I need logging out and in to work.
One more comment, the deep intertwining of Mesa and X.org leads to a
need to be clear about what release of Mesa is expected at least when a
katamari release comes out. In my experience that has been somewhat of
an undocumented area. I encourage you to put that information in the
Thanks for your help on this.
