Mesa 17.0.1 (graphics driver)

If someone finds a way to use it with Porteus, it would be great. I tried, but it freezes DE inputs as soon as it loads.

@fulalas
If arch mesa lib is valuable to eval,
you can use the modules converted from arch in Porteus 3.2.2.
These were tested by Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso running.

mesa-from-arch.tar (21 M)

md5sum: 54c214595de6f895acd2c4f9a7155219 mesa-from-arch.tar

Code: Select all

$ tar -tf mesa-from-arch.tar
mesa-x86_64.xzm
wayland-1.13.0-x86_64-1.xzm
Thanks.

Thanks, neko. I followed exactly this approach, so your module, like mine, is a copy from Arch's Mesa build. :good:

But after figuring out wayland missing lib, I'm facing now an error when trying to execute any OpenGL app (libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so). However using the old libGL together with the new /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/i965_dri.so it works flawlessly and glxinfo tells me that I'm currently using Mesa 17.0.1. So maybe libGL is just a collection of OpenGL extensions pointing to the real drivers found inside /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/ :unknown:

Did you do a full Wayland install or just fix the missing library?

Reason i ask is because when i was playing about with Slackware Nvidia drivers from USM it also installed a extra Wayland package so there is one for Slackware if you want to try it to see if it makes any difference.

BAH! :(

Hope this Mesa issue can be resolved at some point as i have a fanless Ivybridge doing nothing and there is no way i can fit a separate graphics card in it.

You can still use Mesa 11 or 13 or 17.0.0 :)

@fulalas
I guess that the library missing problem was caused from directory array difference.
/usr/lib64, /lib64 are assigned to /usr/lib in Arch.
Therefore there is a possility that setting symbolic link as following may avoid this issue.

Code: Select all

% su
# cd /
# ln -sf /usr/lib64 /usr/lib
Thanks.

Oh, yeah! I'm aware of this, thanks. My module is Porteus ready. :)
