    full mesa stack takes a very long time to compile
    Haha, i wouldn't 6 -7 min call a very long time.
    and can be difficult to produce 32-bit libraries especially.
    Haha, only for MSC software develpoers.

      Destroy your solid state driver in peace and let normal people use binary packages.

      It is easy to make mesa packages from Debian source packages that are provided both Oibaf ppa and Padoka ppa. You are not only people in the world and compiling software is out question for most people.

      Low educated and non creative people use their time to useless things like compiling software that is compiled already and writing BS to the internet.

        Your question about an alternative to the Padoka PPA implies that you would use the PPA if it were updated. That would be a good reason, for example. Otherwise I don't understand why you ask for it.

        But as it is ... there are people who find the work of a "free developer" valuable. And others don't.

        And I don't think it will be updated any further. As I said Paulo Dias on Mesa 19.1 is still active for the unstable PPA. With the release of Mesa 19.0 it won't take long until the stable PPA is updated.

        I also have to say that in a "free project" you can't talk about "won't be updated anymore" if nothing has happened since 6 weeks and the changes since the last update are very very marginal.

        The current state of the Stable PPA is 18.3.3 ... up to the yesterday released 19.0 only the intermediate step 18.3.4 is missing. Can you seriously claim that the PPA is not up to date with this small gap?

          Now it's time to grab your own nose.
          You allways write bullshit in nearly 99% of your posts (use agd5f wip kernels, compile that with a depricated command, use my supderduper distro, use a frankendebian).
          You're really just a wannabe specialist.

            Thanks @ all Mesa devs for the hard work.
            My favourite rolling distribution of choice is ready for the update.

            @ PPA gallery: Learn to compile mesa or finally get a sane distribution. Why would you mess with outdated mesa versions or worse with outdated git revisions? That's what I call a waste of time.

              Sorry, but I have to disagree. (but not completely)

              Only my two cents ...

              This is definitely the "best" variant and also the one you should use if you can.

              But this "if you can" is exactly the problem.

              There are certainly enough users out there who are overloaded with compiling, who think that they are overloaded and therefore don't do it, or those who don't have to have the latest build state by the minute it releases and can save time because of it.

              This is similar to the GNU/FOSS versus proprietary software discussion. If we want more users to be able to imagine a Linux-based PC, then we also have to accept that most of the new users won't be able to access these depths of abstraction. Especially possible Windows switcher want a system that works as well as possible and where no manual adjustments have to be made. And under this aspect I have to say I don't care if something is GNU/FOSS or propietary. Or if someone uses a PPA.

                Debianxfce, you're a moron. And on my 8 core ryzen 1700 system, it's about a 2 minute compile. Doable on an i3 laptop in 10, I'd bet.

                  You are just jealous to people that use their computers and time better. Padoka ppa and OIbaf ppa are semi automated builds. It is really stupid to compile mesa and llvm by yourself.

                    Why isn't he banned for stupidity in general? Serious question, people.

                      That's what I've been wondering for a long time.
