  • Mesa branch for vega

    Hello. I have been trying to configure things so that I can use the open source amd driver for my vega 56.
    I'm on debian buster, running the amd-staging-4.12 kernel, cp'd the vega_* blobs from linux-firmware.git to /lib/firmware/amdgpu, updated clang+llvm to 6.00 version and installed mesa-git using the master branch (install dir is /usr/local) but ran into a problem, see below :

    glxinfo |grep -i opengl
    libGL error: core dri driver extension not found
    libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
    libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
    libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi

    OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 3.30

    OpenGL core profile profile mask: core profile

    Do you know what could cause the issue (swrast being used instead of radeonsi) ?

    Please disregard, I found the solution : radeonsi wasn't compiled in
