    Did you make 32-bit libraries too, they are essential. Oibaf ppa Mesa cosmic version has freesync patches and it works with Debian testing/sid, google "ppas in Debian".

    Linux 5.0 release candidates are not building properly on my system though so I've yet to get Freesync running.
    Download kernel sources from kernel.org. No problems to make Debian packages for 5.0 rc kernel with Debian testing/sid:
    fakeroot make-kpkg -j 12 --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers
    My kernel config: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=...76055818948255

      You people just scored an own goal by saying that linux users should compile their own drivers. Congratulations.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS which is the most modern base for a lot of distributions and is popular itself has mesa 18.0.0-rc5. If someone skipped 18.04 as 16.04 has 5 years of support and not 2, then this person has mesa 11.2.0, and if someone still doesn't want to mess with their system upgrade and rocks 14.04 then mesa is at version 10. Debian stable - 13.0.6 Ehh..?
        You can have an updated mesa using flatpak runtimes without messing with your lts distro.

            That's what I'm trying to do, but I get stuck at
            Code:
            AR      kernel/built-in.a
            make[1]: Lämnar katalogen ”/home/qwerty/linux-5.0-rc2”
            make: *** [debian/ruleset/targets/common.mk:301: debian/stamp/build/kernel] Fel 2
            Same when I try rc1

              Use English as language for your system. You should have the following packages installed: build-essential kernel-package qt5-default qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev qtbase5-dev-tools bison flex libelf-dev libssl-dev pkg-config

              You can use my kernel repository, here is an idea how to use it:
              fetch-url https://packagecloud.io/debianxfce/customkernel/gpgkey /target/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/packagecloud.asc
              in-target add-apt-repository -y "deb https://packagecloud.io/debianxfce/customkernel/debian/ buster main"

                    You don't need anything complicated like executing fakeroot explicitly and etc.

                    Simply copy config from latest available Debian kernel (like from experimental) to .config file in the kernel source, and then do:

                    Code:
                    make oldconfig
                    For the most part, just accept proposed defaults.

                    Then copy Debian certificate to debian/certs/ in the kernel source: https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team...ning-certs.pem
                    After that:

                    Code:
                    scripts/config --disable DEBUG_INFO
                    scripts/config --set-str MODULE_SIG_KEY
                    And then just do:

                    Code:
                    make -j$(nproc) deb-pkg
                    See:

                      You can even become president of the most powerful country in the known universe, but i still won't care

                      Besides, that 'make-kpkg' have bugs and is not recommended to use for years now, just do 'make deb-pkg'

                      CULTURE The good old days of kernel-package



                      Before the Linux build system gained the ability to build proper Debian packages, the recommended way to build such packages was to use make-kpkg from the kernel-package package.

                      I am sure you have no idea what culture is, but anyway i speak this because of others i don't care about troll like you
