Demonstrates readpix text inversion

After upgrading to Mesa-9.0 drivers, we noticed that rendering was flipped vertically in our application.

Upon further investigation, I found similar behavior in the following Mesa demos:

readpix : press f, and notice the text / images being drawn upside down
tessdemo: Clicking on the mouse places a point on the correct X coordinate, but on the opposite Y coordinate
winpos: running the example, the images are upside down.

Mesa 9.0 isn't really maintained any longer.

Can you try current 9.1 branch?  There were some fixes on master that I recently cherry picked over to the branch.

Also, what driver are you using?  The output of "glxinfo | grep renderer" should provide the necessary information.

I am on Scientific Linux 6.3. How can I install the 9.1 version? I'm not able to find that on the Add/Remove software, and trying to compile the source results in errors such as "Requested 'libdrm_radeon >= 2.4.42' but version of libdrm_radeon is 2.4.39"

Here's some more (hopefully helpful) information:

If I start the drawpix example, everything looks fine. But the second I hit f to draw to the GL_FRONT buffer, the image becomes vertically inverted, and the keyboard controls are inverted as well. I think the problem is happening in the glDrawPixels function, based on the amount of debugging I've done into the issue so far.

According to glinfo,

GL_RENDERER: Software Rasterizer

Should be fixed by:

    mesa/swrast: fix inverted front buffer rendering with old-school swrast
    I've no idea when this broke, but we have some people who wanted it fixed,
    so here's my attempt.
    reproducer, run readpix with swrast hit f, or run trival tri -sb things are
    upside down, after this patch they aren't.
