      Mesa is stuck in NEW for two months... not sure why, but i guess because of questionable NINE legality

      Just a guess i mean , but when there is such silence that is usually some legal prob

        No good reason, too.. stable is at 18.2.x, no reason why it shouldn't be on that. Ubuntu 18.10 ships with 18.2.2. 19.0 is in devel, 18.3 is in RC. 18.1 should've disappeared.

        But honestly, that's why I started compiling my own Mesa. (thanks again for the tutorial, shmerl). Cross-compilation for 32-bit is broken on 64-bit debian/ubuntu systems right now, so I'd probably refrain if you're looking for no resistance. I had to set up Ubuntu 16.04 32-bit in a VM (plus a little work) to get those i386 drivers to go along with the x86_64 I built on my own host.

        But no more worrying about PPAs finally! (you're doing a great deed though, oibaf). Saves people *lots* of hassle and time. Once you get your build script going, it's automatic after that. I understand it's not sustainable for most people, but it builds in under 5 minutes and you can add march=native goodness as well.

        Code:
        OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon (TM) RX 480 Graphics (POLARIS10, DRM 3.26.0, 4.18.17-041817+custom-generic, LLVM 8.0.0)
        OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 18.3.0-rc2 (git-f55265776f)

          Debian cares about legality, but Mesa is known to not care so much about that S3TC and texture float expired yeah:

            Or a squirrel farted in the forest and the Debian devs freaked out.

              We would like if it is just squirrels farting, but reality in our forests are really different

                Please explain what is new in 18.2 that would cause that, and not have them pull 18.1 as well.

                It's hard to imagine they're scared of something when Red Hat's lawyers aren't. I mean, they actually have money to lose.
