Slackware 14.2 and latest stable Mesa


Hi everyone,
repost because the last one was isn't showing for some reason (sorry for the duplicate in case).
I was wondering what's the correct way to keep the Mesa package updated to the latest stable release on Slackware64 14.2, without having to track -current.
I already asked this question on the IRC channel some months ago, and the kind user Orbea provided me with some of his scripts to keep Mesa updated to the latest git version. Unfortunately I've lost the scripts and I couldn't find them anywhere on the web, so I figured I could make a post here to keep for future reference to newbie users like myself.

As I understand, to correctly build Mesa one needs updated llvm toolchain (I think -current has 3.9, whereas Slackware 14.2 has 3.8), updated libdrm and maybe some hw acceleration pkgs (vdpau,vaapi,..) but I'm unsure if there's a special build order or lib versions to consider, or even additional packages that I'm not aware of.

I was thinking of grabbing the mesa.Slackbuild from -current and start from there, but I really don't feel confident enough yet, especially building an important system package like this.

So please, share your tips/scripts/slackbuilds and thanks in advance!

The longer it goes between the latest update and 14.2's release date, the harder it will be to keep mesa up-to-date. The reason behind this is newer versions of mesa or its dependencies will eventually require newer versions of more and more dependencies.

Back in my 14.1 days, I wanted to update mesa to use some new features it provided in conjunction with the release of the 3.18 kernel. To do so, I ended up needing to update over 200 packages (although, a good chunk of those were my X packages).

Overall, you first try and build mesa with what you have installed. If it errors out, it will likely say it needs a newer version of some program. You then grab the newer version of that program and try and build it. If that first dependency fails as well, you will need to find what dependency that needs updated (or possibly added, if it's a new requirement). If that first dependency succeeds, you go back and try and rebuild mesa. If mesa fails again, it will notify you what other package needs to be updated and you just keep playing that game until all dependencies are updated and mesa builds and runs fine.

When I did it, I just grabbed the source directory of mesa and other needed dependencies from -current and then build them on my system. Once I successfully updated mesa (and libdrm, X, and a few other dependencies), I only went as far with mesa as I could before it started complaining about versions of dependencies again. I wasn't willing to go through that hassle multiple times (this added even more respect for Pat and what he does with -current).

Or orbea will hopefully see this and provide his scripts again

Thanks for the reply bassmadrigal,
I felt it was not an easy job, coming from ubuntu where there's a special repository for stable mesa that breaks other packages very often.
I don't think I'll want to keep mesa always updated, as the current stable version provides me with everything I need (in particular OpenGL 4.5 for some of the games I like to play), so in case no other user comes up with better suggestions I guess I'll go the "manual" way with fingers crossed

The issue with my mesa script is that I use nouveau and my script modified from Pat's is hardcoded for that. It would not be hard to change, but I don't have other hardware to test. Additionally a libdrm built from the git master is often needed to build mesa from the git master, I also never had to update my x packages ahead of what was provided in current other than to test bug fixes.

Other than that, the main thing you can do is build the latest stable kernel from kernel.org and use irc to report any graphical issues to the correct devs at freenode.

general mesa issues: #dri-devel
amd: #radeon
intel: #intel-gfx
nouveau: #nouveau
xorg: #xorg-devel

Apitrace is also pretty useful provide to traces that developers can use to debug.

libdrm:

README
Code:
This  is libdrm,  a userspace  library for  accessing the  DRM, direct
rendering  manager, on  Linux,  BSD and  other  operating systes  that
support the  ioctl interface.  The library  provides wrapper functions
for the  ioctls to avoid  exposing the kernel interface  directly, and
for chipsets with drm memory manager, support for tracking relocations
and  buffers.   libdrm  is  a  low-level library,  typically  used  by
graphics drivers  such as the Mesa  DRI drivers, the  X drivers, libva
and  similar projects.  New  functionality in  the kernel  DRM drivers
typically requires  a new  libdrm, but a  new libdrm will  always work
with an older kernel.

To disable intalling various Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) API use:
  INTEL="no" RADEON="no" AMDGPU="no" NOUVEAU="no" VMWGFX="no"

To avoid stripping the debug symbols use:

Mesa is an open-source implementation of the OpenGL specification -
a system for rendering interactive 3D graphics.

A variety of device drivers allows Mesa to be used in many different
environments ranging from software emulation to complete hardware
acceleration for modern GPUs.

Mesa ties into several other open-source projects: the Direct Rendering
Infrastructure and org to provide OpenGL support to users of X on Linux,
FreeBSD and other operating systems.

Its depends on what card you are using, for me still using an HD5670 I just needed to compile libdrm and the latest mesa + the their multilib packages and I was good to go, no need to fiddle around with llvm for me. But for other drivers in mesa you may need a newer llvm.

Yes, amd drivers require llvm and I'm not sure if the llvm in 14.2 or even current is new enough. As for intel and nouveau, you only really need llvm if you plan to use the llvmpipe which can be useful when debugging. In which case the llvm in current is new enough, I'm still not sure about 14.2.

Many thanks orbea for the slackbuilds! Exactly the ones I've lost!
It should be easy enough to change the target to stable mesa and driver to radeon (I have an AMD card). I can take a look at the -current slackbuild for reference.
I'll fiddle with it as soon as I got an evening free, in the meantime I'll mark the thread as solved.
Thanks again to everyone!

I often build my own mesa from git since i use amd hardware and want to test the latest bells and whistles.
I use current since it updates pretty often and has a resent version of llvm which i need since i use radeonsi.
For mesa git on 14.2 i guess you need to update llvm if you build radeonsi if not i think it will build anyway.
Slackware 14.2 comes with llvm 3.8.0 and radeonsi dropped support in git for llvm 3.8.0 in 2017-05-04
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/me...c1d371c64220b9
Mesa 17.1.0 required llvm 3.8.0 for radeonsi (if i remember correctly you need llvm 3.9 for OpenGL 4.5 with radeonsi) swr needed 3.9.0
https://www.mesa3d.org/relnotes/17.1.0.html

So to round it up you need newer llvm if your an radeonsi user (or use the mesa.SlackBuild without opting out radeonsi first) and want to use git or OpenGL4.5 with radeonsi with mesa 17.1 if not llvm 3.8 will be enough.

About libdrm you should update it if you use an newer kernel.

There is normaly no need to rebuild everything, if you update major version of llvm then you need to rebuild mesa.
xorg server 1.18.3 is videodriver ABI 20 and it works even after updating driver (it's about min version of driver that will compile, we all know that often the proprietary blobs won't compile when ABI version is bumped) since the drivers compile against xorg ABI and not the other way around.
https://www.x.org/wiki/XorgModuleABIVersions/

Edit: i forgot that mesa.SlackBuild in 14.2 use the deprecated --enable-gallium-llvm it should be --enable-llvm for mesa 17.1.
There is an script for mesa called get-mesa.sh that i use to grab git and make a package that i later build with mesa.SlackBuild
I edit the get-mesa.sh to BRANCH=master for grabbing latest git.

You can skip --enable-llvm because it will be enabled by default.

--enable-gallium-llvm DEPRECATED: use --enable-llvm instead

Any one have a script to create a mesa-17.1.0 package that works perfectly with slackware 14.2? I tried compiling
mesa 17.1.0 but i get this

nouveau driver
err:wgl:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo couldn't initialize OpenGL, expect problems

when try to run games.

For wine you're going to need the 32bit mesa package installed as well.
