mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

mesa is an important part of the linux graphics stack and changes/improves  at a very high pace.
Many people prefer to get those changes very fast and run latest mesa development version, usually called mesa-git .
Arch Linux has a substantial number of mesa-git users, but we never had  a dedicated thread for it.

In the recent past, the "Discussion: the ati/radeon open source drivers & radeon repository" thread got more and more posts about mesa-git , llvm/clang svn along with intel / nouveau related posts.

About a month ago i posted about this in "Forum and Wiki Discussion" board, and the consensus was that a separate thread for mesa-git is a good idea.

Before going into more detail i feel i need to make one thing very clear :

As a mesa-git user  you are running the latest development versions of mesa and llvm/clang .
This means we are likely to be among the first people that encounter new bugs.
In case you're not prepared to help with breakages and troubleshooting, stick to the stable mesa & llvm packages from extra



There are currently 2 implementations of mesa-git for AL. Often issues found with one are also present in the other implementation.
To avoid confusion please refer to them as LH-mesa-git-repo and Aur-mesa-git .

LH-mesa-git-repo
maintained by AL developer LordHeavy
builds against [testing]  repos
provides x86_64, i686 and multilib versions
packages come from an unofficial repo
includes llvm-svn packages in same repo


Aur-mesa-git
maintained by Lone_Wolf (me)
builds against stock repos
provides x86_64 and multilib versions
packages are present in aur, no repo for them (i don't have access to hosting for an archlinux unofficial repo)
Uses aur llvm-svn packages maintained by kerberizer , who does provide fresh binaries build every 6 hours from an unofficial repo

Some tips :

Before reporting errors,verify you are using the latest versions available. if not, update/rebuild first

the aur packages listed below are tested against makepkg only.
If you do get problems with them when using any aur helper,verify the problems are also present when built with makepkg.
(if the error goes away when built with makepkg, don't post in this thread but contact the maintainer of your aur helper.)

Lone_Wolf, thanks for starting the topic and for the nice summary. Concerning the repo, I could set up the Mesa packages to be automatically built on the system I use for building LLVM and also hosted the same way. Another possibility, if you'd rather build and sign the packages yourself, is to open an sftp account on the system where the repos are hosted. It might also be possible to arrange for a shell account on the build box, but I'll need to check this with the local admin first, because that's a university system. If you're interested, just let me know.

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

Thanks for the offer, kerberizer . i'll think about it and contact you directly .

----------------

This mesa commit leads to a build fail.
PTHREAD-STUBS is provided by the aur libpthread-stubs package , adding that as a makedepend solves the fail . (Aur mesa-git and vulkan-intel-git use that method now.

I've looked at the code of libpthread-stubs and on linux systems running glibc (or another libc implementation that provides the pthread lib) libpthread-stubs is a dummy package that installs a pkg-config file.
On OSes that miss a full pthread library ( *BSD , android , windows ? ) , libpthread-stubs should provide mesa a way to gracefully switch to single-threaded execution.

At some point mesa-git sourcecode changes  will enter mesa stable versions, and i'm not sure a libpthread-stubs package is the right way to solve this.

I see 3 possible ways to solve this :

- introduce a pthread-stubs dummy package in [community] or [extra] ( could be done by moving aur libpthread-stubs )

- add the dummy pkgconfigfile to glibc

- override pkg-config by setting environment vars

mesa ./configure --help wrote:

]
PTHREADSTUBS_CFLAGS
              C compiler flags for PTHREADSTUBS, overriding pkg-config
  PTHREADSTUBS_LIBS
              linker flags for PTHREADSTUBS, overriding pkg-config

No idea what values they should have, but the dummy pkg-config file doesn't list them at all.

Thoughts ?

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

Funny. It seems libdrm maintainers had been facing the same problem, and they solved it rather straightforwardly: sed -i "/pthread-stubs/d" configure.ac. This seems to work well for Mesa too. Perhaps we follow their example?

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

It would probably be better to use

sed -i "/PTHREADSTUBS/d" configure.ac

I choosed to patch configure.ac to remove libpthread-stubs detection code, see http://pkgbuild.com/~lcarlier/mesa-git/ … /mesa-git/

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

This commit seems to failed the build with error:

i915_screen.c: Dans la fonction ‘i915_get_param’:
i915_screen.c:276:9: erreur : ‘PIPE_CAP_VOTE_TGSI’ undeclared (first use in this function)

'PIPE_CAP_VOTE_TGSI' is declared in "src/gallium/include/pipe/p_defines.h" which is indirecly include in "i915_screen.c" like this:

i915_screen.c --> i915_context.h --> p_defines.h 

So, what's wrong?

I managed to build it by removing line 276 in "i915_screen.c" and then run makepkg with noextract option (-e) but i agree that is an ugly workaround.

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

Are we supposed to report bugs/ problems here - or is this only about buidling these packages?

I gave nouveau another try in exchange for the nvidia binary driver. Everything works astonishing well, but I realized soon, that when I stopped a video (e.g. h264 encoded video) using vdpau with xine or mpv (using vdpau or opengl as video output driver), my pc freezes- I can move the mouse, but no further reactions.

So I updated to the versions given in the LH-mesa-git-repo, but the observations are the same, last update was yesterday evening.

Changing to xv instead of vdpau as video output (and then missing hardware acceleration in both players) makes the problems go away, but my poor hardware comes to its bordes beyond 720p video, e.g. TV from ITV or BBC HD.

If I can supply useful information - just tell me what to do.

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

If the problem does also occur with stock mesa, imo it  doesn't belong in this thread.
Problems specific to running mesa git master are welcome.

Bernd_B :  your description suggests the problem occurs in both stock and git mesa?
I suggest starting a separate thread for it.

a few questions  :
playing the h264 vids works , the problem happens when you stop them ?
If you play from cli/x-terminal , what output do you see ?
Does ctrl + alt + function key get you a functional console when the pc 'freezes' ?
What WM/DE are you using ?

Please note that now mesa-git repo provides wine-nine package - it's regular the wine release with nine patchset applied.

To install it, just do pacman -Syu wine-nine

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

@Lone_Wolf
Sorry, I missed the notification of your answer and just came back now.

Yes, the problem occurs with stock mesa too, so I tried the git versions to see if it helps.

The playing works, yes. the problem occurs when playing the stop button of vlc or closing the window of mpv.  A "safe" method is for me to use the killall command to stop playback.

The pc freezes completely, only the mouse pointer moves, but keyboard shows no reaction. I succeded in logging in to the frozen PC with ssh, but the desktop keeps beeing frozen, regardless of all killall xine, vlc etc commands.

The desktop is xfce4 with the default windows manager and I disabled compiz.

But anyway, I understand that a separate thread could be better since this is not specific to the git-versions, although since about 10 days, I could not freeze my pc with 100 percent sureness with pressing the stop buttons in xine or vlc any more. So things seems to get better.

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

@Lone_Wolf, this commit changes the way pthread-stubs are handled. I wonder if we shouldn't simply add "linux*" to the new case statement, just like cygwin is now excluded, and be done with it. smile

Edit: Slightly off-topic, many thanks to @lordheavy for picking up this patch to Xorg, which fixes the ugly cursor amongst other titles also in Stellaris.

Edit2: This seems to work fine, though there might of course be better approaches...

Without logs, noboby can't say what's wrong......

Clover is currently broken with llvm-svn, a patch should be pushed soon

Ah, yes, indeed: forgot about that. Clover seems to break relatively often. Good to see the patch is progressing well.

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

There is now the package vulkan-radeon-git package i n the mesa-git repo, from the really early radv driver - opensourced vulkan driver for radeon from Dave Airlie and Bas Nieuwenhuizen.

Git tree is here: https://github.com/airlied/mesa/tree/semi-interesting
Source of the package is here: http://pkgbuild.com/~lcarlier/mesa-git/ … adeon-git/
Phoronix article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n … kan-Driver

Don't expect it to really work!

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

Lordheavy,

a few days ago DiFuzZzoR alerted me to this bug : https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97285 .
It affects Dota2 and TF2 and possibly other apllications.

I've added the patch in comment #7 to mesa-git and lib32-mesa-git, maybe you could do the same ?

Re: mesa-git - latest videodrivers & issues

I'm not sure why but any build post Monday morning's breaks steam and steam games:

Running Steam on arch rolling 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is disabled by the user
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1476134451)
libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Rolling back to Monday's fixes the problem, so it shouldn't be something like cleaning up Steam librairies (which I do as part of starting Steam
anyway).
Has anything related to the build changed?

You can try to start steam with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose
