Neither am I. All I know is that Alpha reorders CPU instructions more
aggressively than most other architectures, the page map size is 8kB,
and memory accesses must be aligned to the datum size.
Maybe Ivan or Richard can comment on any relevant Alpha mmap specific
BTW, I discovered a couple of weeks ago that DRI is broken under UMS.
It was working a year or so ago so something has happened to it. Am I
correct in thinking that the DRM code has pretty much been shifted into
the kernel even for UMS?
On the Alpha I have been testing on (PWS600au, EV56 cpu and a radeon
RV710 graphics card) running glxgears under UMS displays artefacts in
rendering the gears, that is, some facets are not clipped to the
rotating gear but extend to the edge of the window. On another Alpha
(XP1000, EV67 cpu and a radeon RV610 card) it locked up completely
(couldn't even ping it) when I ran glxgears. They are both running
