Recommended way to update :

run pacman -Syu
build & update llvm-svn & lib32-llvm-svn
build & update mesa-git
build & update lib32-mesa-git

If you feel llvm-svn takes to long to build (50 minutes on my system) Kerberizer (aur llvm-svn & lib32-llvm-svn maintainer ) has setup an unofficial repo.

That repo is updated to latest llvm-svn several times per day.

sandy8925, this package replaces most of mesa-related packages, see "replaces" verb in PKGBUILD

Hello, it looks like following packages:
libva-mesa-driver, mesa-vdpau, opencl-mesa, vulkan-intel, vulkan-radeon

are now separate, and are not built as part of mesa. So, when I build mesa-git, none of the above package files are created like they were previously, and there are no -git versions of these packages in AUR.

Are these files part of the mesa-git package that gets created? How does this work?

Mesa devs informed me that the server(s) hosting mesa trunk code are having trouble with the amount of work needed for git over http/https traffic and asked if i could switch back to git:// protocol.

I have changed the source uri.
On your next build makepkg will complain that the existing sourcefolder is not a valid clone.

cd into the folder where makepkg stores downloaded sourcefiles (it should have a folder called branches) .

run " git remote -v "
origin (fetch)
origin (push)

If your output differs, you're in wrong folder.

run " git remote set-url origin git:// "

run " git remote -v " again
origin git:// (fetch)
origin git:// (push)

Now makepkg will no longer complain.

Seems like disable-pthread-stubs-on-linux.patch is no longer needed since this commit:

@Lone_Wolf: thanks, that did the trick! I knew that I would have to replace both lib32-mesa & mesa with their git counterparts at the same time but since the lib32-mesa-git depends on mesa-git which couldn't be installed, I did not manage to do it.

Ignoring dependencies with the -dd switch is something I would not recommend but in this case I don't think there was another way and it worked without a problem, thanks!

@Shugyousha : you will have to replace lib32-mesa & mesa with their git counterparts at the same time.

If you build in a clean chroot this is a bit tricky, but doable.

If you build on a running system, use pacman -Rdd to remove all lib32-mesa-* parts you have installed.

After you have build & installed mesa-git, you can then build and install lib32-meas-git.

I have looked into building aur mesa-git with libglvnd support, but the patches used in stock mesa 17.0.1-2 don't apply cleanly to git master .

For now aur mesa-git is sticking to the mesa-libgl symlink method.

Users that combine nvidia driver with this package may encounter problems.

I get an unresolvable conflict with libglvnd when trying to mesa-git:

sudo pacman -U mesa-git-17.1.0_devel.89730.3d253d330a-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz mesa-libgl-git-17.1.0_devel.89730.3d253d330a-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: mesa-git and mesa are in conflict. Remove mesa? [y/N] y
:: mesa-libgl-git and libglvnd are in conflict (libgles). Remove libglvnd? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: lib32-libglvnd: removing libglvnd breaks dependency 'libglvnd'

I could not find a way to solve this because mesa-git does not provide lbglvnd but does seem to conflict with it (and there are a lot of packages depending on libglvnd). Am I missing something obvious?

@jugs : kerberizer is correct.
