Is anybody working on packaging / documenting installation of Mesa
9.X on Wheezy? I want to help out if I can for documenting Mesa 9
I noticed this guide: http://x.debian.net/howto/build-mesa.html Does not seem to work anymore because of new versions of Mesa upstream.. You now need to compile drm as well. Some of the ./configure flags in that guide for mesa don't exist anymore.
I was able to successfully compile drm + mesa 9 (32-bit) in Debian Wheezy (64-bit/multiarch) in order to run Steam (32-bit proprietary binary) software well on Intel Ivy Bridge hardware.
So then I started following this guide here:
libudev:i386 libxcb-dri2-0-dev:i386 libxcb-glx0-dev:i386
libxdamage-dev:i386 libxfixes-dev:i386 libx11-xcb-dev:i386
libxext-dev:i386 libcairo2-dev:i386 libfontconfig1-dev:i386
pkg-config:i386 libpciaccess-dev:i386 libc6-dev:i386 gcc-multilib
g++-multilib gcc:i386 c-compiler:i386
After that, I was able to build Mesa 9 (32-bit) for Intel Ivy
Bridge graphics, no problem.
Not sure if that's useful to anybody, but I hope that it is.
Running Ivy Bridge graphics, previously Team Fortress 2 (32-bit
proprietary binary) would have a big green square from the
introduction movie and then go to a black screen with graphical
glitches for the menu.. Now the game runs perfectly fine and
smooth at 1920x1080 resolution and medium graphics settings with
Mesa 9 from git using open source Intel graphics!
Cheers and thanks for your time.
