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.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2016-10-11 20:52

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.

thx, mradermaxlol. patch for llvm issue removed, now compatible with wayland-git .

NOTE package now conflicts with wayland < 1.14.93 , as earlier wayland versions don't provide wayland_egl .

For now that means you'll have to install wayland-git .

The patch to address the LLVM issue is not needed anymore:

*.la files come from libtool, default on arch linux is to remove them during package creation. check your /etc/makepkg.conf , global options section.

Looking into the wayland-git issue

these exist in "mesa"

Thanks for the link , jpapadopoulos I had noticed the build failure but not gotten around to looking for solutions. Given it's passover now, it may take a while before the patch lands in master.

Uploaded new version of mesa-git with this patch added. will do lib32-mesa-git soon also.

jpapadopoulos commented on 2018-03-31 11:50

Mesa needs this patch to build atm. It seems likely this will be merged soon though

I've done some investigating on my own and have removed valgrind as makedep from my libdrm-git packages. mesa-git now again detects libdrm without needing valgrind, so i've removed valgrind also from this package.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2018-03-13 13:39

edit out valgrind from pkgbuild, remove from system if necessary. build mesa-git, after it fails check $srcdir/mesa/config.log search for libdrm and you'll see lines similar to the ones at the bottom.

libdrm on archlinux has been build with valgrind support for a long time, but first time this happened was just after libdrm-git was switched from autotools to meson (libdrm upstream have decprecated autotools and will remove it soon).

when building mesa-git against autotools libdrm pre-2.91 mesa-git didn't need valgrind . It could be a change in libdrm 2.91 , or due to differences between meson/ninja & autotools builds. If you want to investigate, i'd start with testing mesa-git against a libdrm 2.91+ build with autotools.


configure:24009: checking for libdrm >= 2.4.75

configure:24016: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libdrm >= $LIBDRM_REQUIRED"

Package valgrind was not found in the pkg-config search path.

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `valgrind.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

Package 'valgrind', required by 'libdrm', not found

@Lone_Wolf, what did you find that made you conclude valgrind is necessary for building mesa-git? Was the reason Arch-specific or something else? I have no problems building mesa on other distros (e.g. Debian) without valgrind, so I'm curious why it's needed to build on Arch. FWIW, I also wasn't to build on Arch initially, but installing valgrind fixed the libdrm detection problem as you suggested.
