Hi all. Longtime lurker - first post here.

I did manage to get this going largely through PhantomX's slackbuilds. I have an AMD Kaveri system and needed the newer drivers, currently using Kernel 3.14.1.

Few notes that may help:

Compiled latest libdrm - (PhantomX)

Compiled llvm3.4 and added --enable-shared - (Slackware64 current)

Compiled libvdpau, presentproto, xcbproto, libxcb, libxshmfence, latest automake, dri3proto, libclc, ocl-icd - (PhantomX)

Compiled Mesa.10.1.1 with PhantomX's slackbuild with the following changes:
added CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/libelf" - above CFLAGS
added --enable-vdpau \
modified --with-clang-libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
modified --with-egl-platforms=x11,drm \ - No wayland!
and commented out: find ${PKG} -name '*.la' -delete - which caused mesa-demos to fail to build

Compiled libvdpau (again)

Compiled mesa-demos

Compiled glamor-egl

Compiled xf86-video-ati-7.3.0

Created glamor.conf per freedesktop.org

eliminated xorg.conf

Thanks Sturferus - couldn't post links in my first LQ post.

Seems my success was a bit premature and I was getting software rendering in openGL. Finally got mesa 10.1.1 dialed in (had to match the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS with LLVM for it to play nicely)- here's the modified SlackBuild that works with my Kaveri system:

What about "glxinfo | grep direct" and fps with glxgears?

Sure - see below:

Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
Code:
vblank_mode=0 glxgears
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.
12669 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2533.703 FPS
13071 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2613.991 FPS
13076 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2615.091 FPS
13069 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2613.749 FPS
13037 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2607.241 FPS
13086 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2617.198 FPS

Unfortunately Dr T, I'm not running multilib (yet?) just 64bit, but I would imagine the same changes I made in the SlackBuild above would also have to be made to the SlackBuild here

Just an update - with kernel 3.14.2 here are the numbers:

Code:
vblank_mode=0 glxgears
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.
23898 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4779.568 FPS
24318 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4863.411 FPS
24365 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4872.862 FPS
23923 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4784.448 FPS
24024 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4804.614 FPS
24031 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4806.098 FPS
Looks like some tangible benefits from using the newer kernel.

glxgears is by no means a benchmark of modern GPUs or GPU drivers, it is rather a CPU benchmark, so increases or decreases there don't say much about actual graphics performance.

Hey guys, i've got things up and running, the way truepatriot76 explained it. Had to add a few things like opencl-headers, ended up throwing wayland on...
everything seems to be working fine, no more 'opengl driver swrast not found' errors as explained in the first post. I installed and played some games on steam.
The only thing i notice, is i get this: (multilib system)
ldconfig
ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1 is not a symbolic link
ldconfig: /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so.1 is not a symbolic link

i've tried re-installing libclc, still get the warning
does anyone else have this? Any ideas?

I'm not sure why some of you people build so many dependencies. For Mesa 10.1.2 I only had to build 6 packages and I end up with a full Mesa build that supports ATI, NVidia, Intel and the rest.

I just took most of the packages from wlsbuild and modified the mesa slackbuild a bit.

In the right order:

dri3proto
presentproto
libdrm
libvdpau (can be optional)
llvm
mesa

My sources and packages for Slackware64-current are here.

Just played a round of Painkiller: Hell & Damnation with my Radeon 6800 - absolutely awesome.

Edit: -compat32 needs some little tweaks, because llvm-config always chooses one level up as the ldpath which results in 32bit-llvm returning /usr/bin/lib as the ldpath. Nothing a little temporary symlink can't fix. SlackBuilds are up, too! Steam + Wine are much more usable now for me.

I won't speak for everyone, but I have newer hardware - so I wanted to enable as much as I could in mesa and also wanted glamor and vdpau. Since my hardware only shows up in the very latest xf86-video-ati-7.3 drivers, I also needed that too. Everyone has different hardware and different goals. I'm not used to seeing newer hardware being supported so quickly in linux. It's a beautiful thing!

The other dependencies are needed for xf86-video-ati-7.3 and xorg-server-1.15. By the way, using Glamor for 2D acceleration has made my machine much more smooth, I can recommend that for users of HD6000 series and newer. Have to look how that works on previous hardware when Mesa 10.2 is released, which will support Glamor on older hardware.

I also moved to Gentoo (~amd64 branch) and I am glad everything works fine on it.
