Both spirv-llvm-translator and libclc need to be build against the same llvm version as mesa-git .

Currently we have

  • for repo llvm: spirv-llvm-translator / libclc

  • for llvm-minimal-git: spirv-llvm-translator-minimal-git and libclc-minimal-git from AUR

  • for Lordheavy versions: libclc-git & spirv-llvm-translor-git from his repo

  • for aur llvm-git : no one has created these packages sofar

clover didn't require spirv-llvm-translator last time it was enabled, but that seems to have changed.

tl;dr : neither rusticl nor opencl are currently possible with this package unless we drop aur llvm-git support .

If you want that changed : create & maintain spirv-llvm-translator & libclc varaints for llvm-git . I am available for help through email, but am not going to create or maintain them.

Those that want to use rusticl with mesa trunk & llvm trunk can switch to mesa-minimal-git or lordheavy's versions.

Mesa and llvm are closely tied together. Everytime the llvm mesa is built against changes/updates , mesa needs to be rebuilt.

I expect anyone building mesa-git against one of the llvm trunk variants to be able to do that themselves, but atleast some of the people that built against repo llvm don't understand how to deal with such a rebuild.

The rest of this post is meant for those people.

  • Verify if latest PKGBUILD requirements match llvm repo versions.
  • If they don't , post to alert the maintainer of this.
  • DELAY the update of llvm/clang suite and their lib32- counterparts
  • Once the PKGBUILD does match, download it.

Option A - best one

  • run pacman -Syu to ensure your system is in sync with your mirrror server
  • build mesa-git in a clean chroot

see for the official way or for an alternative method.

  • install the newly built mesa-git
  • run pacman -Syu
  • ready

Option B - 2nd best

  • revert to repo mesa
  • pacman -Syu
  • build mesa-git
  • switch from mesa to mesa-git
  • ready

  • choosing which llvm variant to build against

WARNING : aur helpers don't support this method at all. They check .SRCINFO and that doesn't include this variable so it will use the default which is hardcoded to build against repo 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.

  • 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 , update mesa-git and restart X .

run glxinfo -B to verify basic OpenGL functionality

build lib32-mesa-git

run glxinfo32 -B to verify basic OpenGL functionality for multilib programs

If you want to build this for 23.0 you will need to change three things:

(1)change main to 23.0


(2)change virtio to virtio-experimental

-D vulkan-drivers=amd,intel,swrast,virtio-experimental,intel_hasvk \

(3)remove av1dec,av1enc,vp9dec

-D video-codecs=vc1dec,h264dec,h264enc,h265dec,h265enc \

lib32-mesa-git just needs 1 & 2.

rjahanbakhshi commented on 2023-11-29 09:13 (UTC)


Thanks, those codecs are now explicitly enabled in the PKGBUILD.

Billli11 commented on 2023-11-21 04:30 (UTC)

With Merged MR 26223

The following value is added to video-codecs 'av1dec', 'av1enc', 'vp9dec'

Av1 and vp9 hardware acceleration is no longer enable by default.

@Lone_Wolf thanks! Now it works! :)

@maintuner : Comments tend to fall down fast, maybe email the proposal ?



Note: Packages in the AUR assume that base-devel is installed in the build environment.

install base-devel then try again.

Hi, I have the problem that it supposedly cannot find the directx headers. But I have installed them. What could be the reason?

Still fails to build with vulkan_intel.h': No such file or directory. Using mesa-git instead.

I would like to propose a modification to the PKGBUILD file. This modification would allow any user to suggest a git commit for reverting, particularly for issues that do not have a patch or for problematic commits.

Given that this is a -git package, I have personally used this patch to revert the commit "28ebe62af2cb38f73790f31dce4b0448268eb2e1". This commit was problematic as it prevented me from playing games such as Alan Wake 2.

This change would be beneficial as it would provide a way for users to contribute to the improvement of the package by suggesting problematic commits for reverting. It would also make the package more adaptable and user-friendly.

Let me know your thoughts.

I did some checking and confirmed clover & rusticl now both need spirv-llvm-translator support to build / work .

So we have 2 choices to include rusticl/clover :

  • A someone steps up and creates spirv-llvm-translator & libclc packages that work with aur llvm-git

  • B drop support for aur llvm-git from this package

Until the time when A or B happen, the only sane approach is to disable both opencl & rusticl.

deemon commented on 2023-11-04 12:18 (UTC)

Yeaah... this completely broke my jellyfin server :-( Not even sure how to fix it myself (what and how to compile the missing components), so swapping back to mainstream repo mesa for time being.
