glxinfo shows old mesa instead of the upgraded one
I'm trying to launch a game: metro low light. It needs some higher mesa version than the default one provided by sabayon (9.2.2), mostly due to OpenGL 3.3 so I thought about upgrading it to 10.01 which is the most recent release upstream.
I just pulled in the sources directly from the website, made sure all the deps were in the system, ran the configure scripts and eventually, installed the libs along with the dri drivers.
Now, I'd expect glxinfo to show that mesa is upgraded but instead:
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.2
I have also found out that it may be "mesa-progs" package which is outdated having problems at recognizing the correct version, but it's up to 8.1.0 which is the most recent.
Do you have any idea why 9.2.2 is still there
thanks in advance
