  • Debian testing supports PADOKA/Oibaf ppa for latest mesa amdgpu driver?

    I'm planning to install Debian testing with provision to pull needed packages from Sid/Unstable through apt-pinning in a laptop with AMD graphics. My doubt is, whether Pkppa/Oibaf etc is supported in Debian, installs correctly without any errors. Or, will I need to rebuild from sources to install each time updates are available.

    Thank you.

    Oibaf and Padoka ppas are not compatible with Debian testing because of the nvidias GLVND in the libegl1 package. Thanks to canonical Mesa maintainer. Debian experimental has latest Mesa releases packages and you can use with testing and sid. Sid is stable so prefer that. Synaptic is so smart that you can enable experimental and update everything, Synaptic will not update those software where is broken packages.
