Hello all,

Mesa 7.6.0 has arrived to Karmic. We need as much testing
as possible from people with different hardware.

I have set up a wiki page to gather information about people who are now 
using the latest mesa in Karmic.

It also includes links to the bugs already filed upstream.

If you want to help testing the new version of mesa, these are the steps 
to follow:

   * Upgrade to the latest version of mesa in Karmic repository
   * Find the exact model of your video card:

     $ lspci -vvnn | grep "VGA compatible controller"

   * Add yourself to the list of testers at:

   * If you encounter any bug, report it against xorg

     ubuntu-bug xorg

   * Add the links of the bugs found to the wiki page
