upgrading mesa


My mb has a builtin Radeon HD 4200 VGA controller. When I upgraded to slack 14.1 I couldn't get X to work. I tried upgrading to mesa-9.2.3-x86_64-1 (and mesa-compat32-9.2.3-x86_64-1compat32) but everything ended up in /usr/local/lib and /usr/lib and it was a mess. Eventually I upgraded to kernel 3.12.1 and my graphics now works ok almost all the time, although glxgear, etc. give an error messages. I just noticed in the changelogs that a new version of mesa is available, but again all the files go into /usr/lib/xorg/... as opposed to /usr/lib64/xorg/....
I have two questions: Is the newer version of mesa likely to support my vga controller and, if so, how do I integrate it correctly into my file system?
Thanks, jwc1936

Do you use Slackpkg to upgrade?
Because I have the feeling you're using a mirror of the 32bits version of Slackware (slackware-current) instead of a 64bits (slackware64-current), although the package names seem OK.
I can't see another reason why the packages would uncompress in /usr/lib, while they're simply tarballs that contain explicitely /usr/lib64 when they're compiled for 64bits.

If you use the Slackware source SlackBuild scripts it'll build a package you can install with upgradepkg. You may want to check the SlackBuild script to add any possible needed options, but that's it.

x/mesa-10.2.4-x86_64-1.txz is in the 64 bit section of changelogs. I downloaded it but did not install because of the above-mentioned file location issue.
