        First sorry to all for double posting. Wasn't aware that first posts need to be approved.

        Regarding the issue, purging the oibaf repo, and adding it again solved the dependency issue for me. It happend before also, and removing/adding again usually works.

        • in my case it got solved on its own with one of the many recent updates.

            I don't think Cayman, RS780, RS880, and maybe some old r600 parts have DPM enabled by default yet even in 3.13. Maybe by 3.14 it will be, but they seem to be focusing on the newer hardware first and working back.

              I'm using Mint 16 and haven't seen this, but when I installed Steam I remember a complaint about S3TC support. Maybe that will help?

              Code:
              sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0
              [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ] && sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386

                No it wont, they have a dependency error relating to other packages. They have to correct the dependency issues manually and install libllvm3.4:i386 manually:

                Code:
                apt-get install libllvm3.4:i386
                or aptitude instead of apt-get. Aptitude is better in dependency resolving IMO.

                • Sorry to ask, but is there any real reason why there are every day 1 to 2 updates? does the mesa stuff really change that often?

                    I set up a system that update every package up to two times a day if there are any changes. And yes, mesa changes often, you can see the log of the changes here:

                      • Including VAAPI intel driver?

                        I think it is also usefull to include the VAAPI driver for intel http://cgit.freedesktop.org/vaapi/intel-driver .

                            I just backported the version in trusty 1.2.1-2 (building now).

                              You may have noticed, other than the usual updates, I backported from Ubuntu 14.04 updated free codecs (opus and opus-tools, libvpx), s2tc fixing a bug, final llvm-3.4, intel-vaapi and, as a holiday present, supertuxkart 0.8.1.
