Wayland and WSA support should be added:

They don't conflict.

You can force which icd file to use with an environment variable; See

Shouldn't this conflict with vulkan-radeon?

ssorgatem commented on 2018-03-07 17:26

Yes, I just noticed that. The Redhat one works, though. I'll update with it.

Sure, I added you.

The Ubuntu ICD file has

"library_path": "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/",

that will probably not work on arch.

Hey, I did some fixes, cleaned up some no longer needed files and set the PKGBUILD to use the upstream (updated) ICD. Here's a patch for the PKGBUILD:

PS: I'm open to becoming a co-maintainer if you want yo.

Shouldn't the JSON icd file be more like this?

I mean, with the "api_version" line at least.

haagch commented on 2018-02-07 14:39

Almost forgot this. So they took the patch 0001-remove-linking-with-whole-archive-v2.patch from this AUR package and applied it upstream:

TIL that it's only a problem on gcc 7+.

Anyway, commenting out applying this patch is all that's needed to get it to build.

I pushed an update without removing the patch file for now because the commit links to that file with no specific git revision and maybe we shouldn't just break the link.

The build still fails with the patch fail that @RemoteAdmin posted a day ago.

Once again there is a patch reject
