  • 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


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 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

done, thanks for the alert xdavidwu.

extra/llvm updated to 9.0.1, the depends and makedepends need to be updated

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-12-17 15:21

@sir_lucjan: will do in the future, thanks for the advice

@Lone_Wolf: good to know, thanks

Looks like upstream has reverted/amended the offending commit, mesa-git builds fine now.

version mesa-git-20.0.0_devel.118606.cffa7bb9908-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

As far as I know, you shouldn't report it to the maintainer, you should report it to the developers. What influence does the package maintainer have on this?

Yes, they are needed.

The reason they're not in depends is that they're in the base-devel group and all AUR users are required to have that installed.

Please add bison and flex packages to makedepends (it is required to build).

bobberb commented on 2019-10-28 20:48

+1 to zink please

Snoop05 commented on 2019-10-28 12:56

Please add zink to the list of gallium drivers since it got merged.
