7.9. RHEA-2013:1622 — new packages: xorg-x11-glamor
New xorg-x11-glamor packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The glamor module is an open-source 2D graphics common driver for the X Window System as implemented by X.org. It supports a variety of graphics chip sets which have OpenGL, EGL or GBM support.
This enhancement update adds the xorg-x11-glamor packages to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The glamor library is provided to support new AMD GPU hardware and can be used by the DDX driver to implement acceleration using the OpenGL driver. Some new hardware, such as AMD HD7xxx Series, needs glamor for acceleration. (BZ#962832)
All users who require xorg-x11-glamor are advised to install these new packages.
