  I compiled it with mostly default parameters (linux-dri target and using
make, not scons), from the nouveau/mesa gallium-0.1 branch.

  For anything that doesn't use lightnings or textures, a bit slow,
but seems good :-)

  I tested a few mesa demos, at least bound and glxgears seens to be
correct, but most of the others are like black&white.

  glxinfo says it is accelerated, and apparently Xorg starts correctly.

  I am attaching glxinfo and Xorg.0.log, and a screenshot of the teapot
mesa demo, in case it may be useful... Or at least for others that have
interest on it, to have an idea.
