Re: Mesa status ?
While setting up various NetBSD workstations I realized that Mesa status
is a bit... confusing.
I have some questions before putting my hands on those: not being really
familiar with the whole Mesa/dri/drm/Xorg infrastructure, is there a
strong reason other than lack of manpower why the most "recent" version we
provide is 7.8.2?
wip/Mesa is split up in many sub-packages, is this something we want? Is
anybody still working on this? Last update was 2 years ago.
Any insight about this whole 3D world would be very much appreciated.
I've recently started to update many X11 packages; my goal here is to be
able to someday run a KMS based xf86-video-intel driver and use Xorg on
In the course of this action I've done some work to update Mesa to 8.0.2
locally; it can't be used as-is with the current modular-xorg stack and
I believe the NetBSD ones as well.
On the other hand, the 7.8.2 version in wip/ works perfectly with what
we have in pkgsrc right now.
I'd like to see 7.8.2 moved to pkgsrc and 7.4.4 removed; we could then
work on putting 8.0.2 and newer versions in pkgsrc-wip and updating the
rest of the x11 packages.
The most pressing needs are x11/xproto (see PR #45465) and
modular-xorg-server (a newer version is available in wip/)
I don't understand the need to create sub-packages either; having one
big MesaLib one similar to upstream would prevent unnecessary work IMHO.
