Bug Description

After installing the pieces listed below from the staging ppa, mir failed to start up.

Note that the version of mesa is from the raring archive rather than the PPA. The versions of mesa in the PPA currently are either unavailable or failed to build.

On this hardware, I had mir running earlier, although the screen was entirely corrupted.

is this still an issue?
we have other bugs wrt corruption when running radeon drivers, but no claims of mir failing to start.
there have been many changes & most mir startup issues have been resolved.
setting this to fixed, but please reopen if this is still reproduceable.
