Does 2.6.1 with XAA works for you?
Any reason you don't use the default EXA or UXA?
I'm afraid we won't continue to support XAA.
Comment 2 Andrey Vihrov 2009-03-01 21:39:27 UTC
2.6.1 is the same. Now I don't really need it - I tried to use that shortly after migrating from the 2.1 version because EXA was very slow. Later I found out there was an Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy" that improved performance dramatically in the 2.6.1 version, and 2.6.2 seems to work out of box. However, I thought it should be reported as the man page for the driver mentions the "XAA" value for the "AccelMethod" option.

Thanks for filing this bug. But we've stopped development for XAA. We leave XAA there just in case someone still need it.
