  • Hi again.
    I ended compiling, opening a bug and tracking for the the commit that caused it.
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100189

    The gallium i915 is unmantained and in deprecation period.
    In my eeepc 1005p lubuntu 16.04 when I install drivers from the Oibaf repo this driver installs as default and the one in the alternative folder is different (can't use it with the last version of Blender) that the one I get when compiling:

    Oibaf
    LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri-alternates/ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Pineview M
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 17.1.0-devel

    Compiled
    LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/home/javi/lib.106a514/ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Pineview M
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 17.1.0-devel (git-106a514)

    • Thanks, I'll have a look, likely making classic driver the default as soon as i have time (weeks).

      • H.L. was very helpful and sent me a patch adding vulkan drivers (mesa-vulkan-drivers) and a dedicated va package (mesa-va-drivers). I added it to the mesa package. Enjoy!
