Description Benoit Jacob [:bjacob] (mostly away) 2012-08-01 11:44:19 PDT
As discussed on the mesa-dev list, the Intel Mesa driver (as of Mesa 8.0) wrongly returns GL_MAX_SAMPLES>0 even though the correct value is 0 (does not support msaa FBOs).

That's causing a test failure in which is actually the very last 1.0.1 test failure.

Setting webgl.msaa-level=0 does now give a full pass, and as we already have a full pass on NVIDIA 302.17, it's worth doing a little workaround to get that second full pass we need to claim conformance on Linux.

So let's assume that Intel Mesa never supports msaa FBOs, until further notice. I asked mesa devs if it's already fixed in trunk; if it is, we'll do a version check instead.

Ken from the mesa-dev list confirmed that this is fixed in versions >= 8.1.0.
