glesv2 not found

Mesa USED TO provide glesv2.pc files all the time, but now only does that when built without libglvnd support.

Mesa devs feel that whoever generates the driver/library should provide such files and I agree with them. This means that libglvnd devs need to provide them, but sofar they failed to do that.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libglvnd-glesv2 is patched to provide all pkgconfig files for the drivers/libararies libglvnd builds, use that instead of stock libglvnd.

  • llvm

Why would I want to use llvm development versions ?

For full functionality and latest features mesa trunk master needs to be build against llvm trunk master.
If you build against stable llvm things MAY work, but you're likely to lack some features and face stability issues.

Mesa-git uses a custom environment variable MESA_WHICH_LLVM for flexibility.
It has 4 values.
1 : aur llvm-minimal-git
2 : aur llvm-git
3: llvm-git from LordHeavy' unofficial repo
4: llvm from extra repo

I use value 1 95% of the time and set this in ~/.bash_rc .
If MESA_WHICH_LLVM is unset or empty, the default value of 4 (extra llvm) is used.

AUR Helpers are NOT supported

I built and test with makepkg. Building with Devtools and Clean Chroot Manager should work fine also (I test them occasionally).

This package and lib32-mesa-git use a custom method to dynamically determine which llvm version is to be used. Several AUR helpers (atleast pamac and yay) have problems with that method.

Incase you try to build mesa-git with one of those AUR helpers

& ARE NOT USING THE DEFAULT SETTING OF MESA_WHICH_LLVM ,

run makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO after downloading and BEFORE building.

That should help pamac and yay to handle my custom method.

  • issues
Simple issues can be dealth with through aur comments, but sometimes discussion is needed.
Use https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=212819 for that.
  • main difference with stable repo package
[extra]mesa is a split package, but aur mesa-git isn't.
Basically with aur mesa-git you get everything in one package, while [extra]/mesa allows you to leave out some parts if you don't want/need them.
Having a single package reduces maintenance and makes switching from stable to mesa-git rather easy, though reverting back to stable can be tricky.
  • meson settings
Those who compare PKGBUILDs will notice I don't use arch-meson, but meson setup.
I disagree with some of the settings made by arch-meson (especially the buildtype and enabling LTO by default) and feel using meson setup is cleaner.
  • how to update

run pacman Syu update non-repo packages for llvm if you use them

build mesa-git, log out , restart X .

run glxinfo to verify basic OpenGL functionality

build lib32-mesa-git

run glxinfo32 to verify basic OpenGL functionality for multilib programs

@shoober420: no, since they are part of base-devel (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#makedepends).

shoober420 commented on 2019-07-16 04:53

"bison" and "flex" are also build dependencies, they should be added.

Thanks, Terence.

mesa needs libglvnd at build & install time, listing libglvnd-glesv2 it as opt depend feels to weak.

@Lone_Wolf Done: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libglvnd-glesv2.

Maybe add it as an optional dependency?

@yurikoles

your first reply made clearer that aur helper users suffer from my choices, your 2nd reply is much closer to convincing me.

Atm the default setting for MESA_WHICH_LLVM doesn't match with the details shown in the AUR interface. Changing that is a good practice and benefits all users.

That this change benefits Aur helper users then becomes a bonus instead of the reason for the change. I'll upload a new version soon, probably monday.

@zfkerr I'll correct mesa-vulkan-layer. As for gles packageconfig files : mesa devs feel that glvnd should provide those as glvnd builds that driver. I agree with them, and there's a patch available for glvnd that generates those files.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mesa-git#comment-696495 Terence has a libglvnd package that includes the patch, maybe that could be uploaded to aur as a temporary solution ?

https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/mesa

@Lone_Wolf, mesa package in [extra] have glesv2.pc file, but your PKGBUILD haven't it. Please, add it too, because we have "mutter" package compilation issues without it.

And, please, replace "mesa-vulkan-layer" with "vulkan-mesa-layer" in the conflicts section in your PKGBUILD. "mesa-vulkan-layer" package does not exist! Thank you!

yurikoles commented on 2019-06-29 21:24

tl;dr:

Default choice .SRCINFO must be uploaded because it's default in PKGBUILD.
