Yes, that is what I am talking about. I use that approach to get clean packages (that don't accidentally use an optional dependency I also have installed) to use them on other machines, and to get 32 bit packages to use them for multilib.
It is also a good way to rule out configuration problems when errors appear.

I think I might have done something wrong, my system became worse than it used to be (stock slackware)

I built my laptop's mesalib against elfutils and llvm, so I wouldn't know. I also built it with the r600 llvm backend flag. Works for me.

How much of a custom install or rebuilding did you do?

I am not on my system now but, as far as I remember, I upgraded libdrm, mesa (fpr 32 and 64 bits), llvm and I think that is it. I used the stock SlackBuild and for mesa I used the on this thread (with a few modifications for the 32bits version, of course).

Unless you edited the SlackBuilds, most of the source archives are, or at least should be if I'm not mistaken, drop-in replaceable with an updated archive.

Yes, it worked pretty fine (I didn't have to edit the SlackBuilds, only the version numbers). The issues I am having is: Firefox crashing (it never crashed before and I don't know if it is related but it might be) and one I am sure it is related is: every once in a while my system/video freezes after coming back of a screensaver or the screen comes back on a weird orientation.

any chance of someone re-explaining this (pretend your talking to a 6 year old). I'm completely lost as to what i need to re-compile, using exactly which sbo's,
i'm once again getting the same errors as the original post. This thread has over a 1000 hits, i'm sure i'm not the only one who needs help.
thanks very much for your time.
