  • 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.
  • wayland
The EGL files needed for wayland (and some programs like firefox) support are being moved from mesa to wayland, This package no longer provides them.
wayland 1.15 and later provide the necessary files.
Either extra/wayland or AUR/wayland-git should provide this.

I don't use wayland myself, so can't test it.
  • llvm-svn
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.
  • how to update

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

Hi, the current URL of Mesa is (please change the url field).

Lone_Wolf commented on 2018-08-28 09:09

Looks like that was never changed since I created my first mesa git package in 2012.

Thanks, will be corrected soon.

HeroCC commented on 2018-08-27 20:00

You may want to change the URL in the PKGBUILD to, the SourceForge link is a pointer to that.

Drirc handling of config files has been changed. The default settings are now in /usr/share/drirc.d folder .

See for details.

Thanks for the alerts.

Looks like this may need a small tweak now:

rm: cannot remove '/var/tmp/makepkg/mesa-git/pkg/mesa-git/usr/bin/intel_dump_gpu': No such file or directory

rm: cannot remove '/var/tmp/makepkg/mesa-git/pkg/mesa-git/usr/bin/intel_sanitize_gpu': No such file or directory

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_mesa-git().

Solved in meson 0.47.1

Griever commented on 2018-07-06 02:53

You can downgrade meson to 0.46.1 as a temporary workaround.
