I've been trying for a few days to get DRI and Mesa installed for an ATI Radeon 9000. After quite a bit of trying to install to /usr/lib/
rather than the default /usr/local/lib/
, following the documentation
, I just let libdrm be installed in the default location.
I had thought that that was the only thing stopping Mesa from making correctly, but alas that's not so. I have made sure to have $PKG_CONFIG_PATH updated correctly, so the Mesa makefile can find libdrm; I've made sure I have glxphoto.h in the proper directory, per the documentation; and I've adjusted the default DRI_DIRS to include only radeon
. So far as I can tell, I have everything set as completely as is needed.
However, upon issuing either
~/Mesa/$ make linux-dri-x86
~/Mesa/$ make linux-dri
the Mesa libraries won't make. Further, each time I've tried something different, e.g. fixing the $PKG_CONFIG_PATH when I found out it wasn't updated, I try to make and am informed to
before making again with changed configuration. Running that puts that shell in what appears to be an endless loop, where make and makedepend end up sharing anywhere between 30% and 80% of my CPU cycles. I see the same stuff thrown to stdout over and over, typically about a variety of header files. It repeatedly dies looking for matypes.h

I fixed the non-portable whitespace, which, as I'd expected, doesn't really help anything.
A little digging seems to indicate matypes.h is supposed to be in the Mesa tree (see
) in the X86
directory. The only thing I have is the gen_matypes.c. Does this
# need some special rules here, unfortunately
x86/matypes.h: main/mtypes.h tnl/t_context.h x86/gen_matypes.c
$(CC) $(INCLUDE_DIRS) $(CFLAGS) x86/gen_matypes.c -o x86/gen_matypes
./x86/gen_matypes > x86/matypes.h
#rm -f x86/gen_matypes x86/*.o
mean that make is supposed to create
matypes.h? What might stop that?
(1) Mesa won't make, though I've installed libdrm appropriately (as far as I can tell), and updated the path variable so Mesa can find libdrm. I have glxproto.h located correctly. I've tried making linux-dri-x86
, with no discernible variation in results.
(2) Possibly (logically) related, upon a failed make attempt, I'm prompted to make realclean, which starts what seems an infinite loop tied to a missing matypes.h header file. I assume that this file might be missing because, well, the make wasn't successful far enough to have generated it, if in fact it's generated during the making of Mesa.
Any light you can shed on this would be appreciated.
