Question Mesa Zink

Hello everyone,
I am looking for help on using Mesas Zink driver, my question is, how do you use Zink?
From the source code I can see that when compiling it you get a libzink library, how do you use it to utilize the OpenGL on top of Vulkan? My use case is for Steam games that use OpenGL 3.3.

I am not afraid of compiling all of mesa for this purpose.

I am on Ubuntu 20.04 64-bit with an Nvidia GTX 1660 and proprietary driver 460.80.

I am actually trying to compile mesa, but I get the error:
Code: ERROR: Dependency "libdrm_intel" not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake
And when running
pkg-config  --modversion  libdrm_intel
I get:
Package libdrm_intel was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libdrm_intel.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libdrm_intel' found
But I do have libdrm at:
I also looked for libzink in the Ubuntu packages but can't seem to find it, it would make life easier that's for sure.

Any help is very appreciated

You may find help searching: Mesa Zink "ubuntu"
when you run the search keep ubuntu in quotes.

Hope you find something useful there... maybe even try with the 20.04 or others?


opengl, vulkan
