    • 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!

      • Hi, Approximately a couple of weeks ago, the driver stopped working correctly. In the game Worldofwarcraft and Worddoftanks watch bands (colored)
        I believed that the problem with me and performed the reinstallation of the system. Re-used your repository, but the problem did not resolve

        • Hi, I've been using your repository for a very long time and a couple of weeks ago there was a problem (see the video, the bands are colored). In my opinion, there was an update. I can not play now.

                    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)
                    It should be fixed in tomorrow update.
