A1-X1000: Mesa 9.2.2-1 and 10.0.0-1
« on: December 18, 2013, 10:20:18 AM »


Hi all,

I've tried Mesa 9.2.2-1 and 10.0.0-1 on Debian Sid. Unfortunately both have the wrong colour issue. Mesa 8.0.5-4 works very well and fast without the colour problem.

Installation of Mesa 8.0.X on new Debian and Ubuntu distributions

If you like to play games without the colour problem on your new Debian (Sid) and Lubuntu (13.10) distributions, then install the old Mesa 8.0.X with "Force Version" with the Synaptic package manager.

You have to reinstall 2 packages:


  • libgl1-mesa-dri
  • libgl1-mesa-glx


Enjoy the games without any problems on your new distributions. :)

Rgds,
Christian

Just for info: This bug report is important for the Cyrus boards, too.

Hi All,

I've hacked Mesa 10.0.3 and now it works with the right colors on Debian Sid and on Lubuntu 14.04. I've uploaded it.

Download: MesaLib-10.0.3-powerpc-unofficial.tar.bz2

Note: If you use (L)Ubuntu 12.04.4 or Debian 7 with Mesa  8.X or 9.1.X, you don't need the new Mesa. Mesa 10.0.3 is not faster  than Mesa 8.X or 9.1.X. It's only for new distributions like Debian Sid and Lubuntu 14.04.

Install instructions:

1. Unpack the archive MesaLib-10.0.3-powerpc-unofficial.tar.bz2

2. Copy it as root to the directory /usr/local/

Code: [Select]
[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=#4D4D4D]sudo cp -R mesa10 /usr/local/[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
3. Set up the new library path

Code: [Select]
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mesa10/lib[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
4. Test it with glxgears. When you see the correct colors then you use the new version of Mesa. After that you can start some games for example Neverball.

SuperTuxKart needs a special run_game.sh for the new Mesa:

Code: [Select]
[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=#4D4D4D]LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin/:/usr/local/mesa10/lib bin/supertuxkart[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]Have a lot of fun with the new Mesa.

Tommysammy has created an OS4.1 icon for our Mesa versions. :)



Download: X1000Mesa.info.lha

Thanks a lot to Tommysammy. :)

I have released the unofficial 10.0.4. Download: MesaLib-10.0.4-powerpc-unofficial.tar.bz2

Just curious, but what's with the linux news? Isnt this an amiga site?
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

It is Linux for PowerPC boards - AmigaNGs.

Its done by Amigans, for Amigans. So shut up. Its good news to have OpenGL on X1000.

"shut up" is not a appropriate comment...

Not a curseword really. I ve seen far worse, even by mods. But you are right ...

By the way , there is a Linux section of almost every Amiga forum.

if I translate it it is very unpolite and that others (including mods) are far worse not makes it good...

I do not have a problem with some Linux-related news too

By that logic x86 linux should be covered on amiga sites seeing as aros runs on x86.
Very tenuous link indeed. That said I hadnt noticed there was a ppc linux forum here, and the post was in the appropriate place.
Congrats to the developer regardless, but it just seemed a bit too "pure" linuz for my tastes.


As for the "shut up" comment, itd be something other than funny if said by someone else,.....

Seriously mods please just ban the clown, he's nothing but s nuisance.  By his own admission his intention here was to be a rude prick.
