  • Firstly thanks oibaf for your excellent work over the years

    Now onto the buglett:
    Running Messa 17.4 Podaka PPA under Ubuntu 17.10 using AMD/ATI video card (RX 480) and an AMD Ryzen 1700. (Though I'm sure its a graphics driver/system related issue, not a CPU issue) This is an OpenCL error. [email protected], via BOINC, using proprietary AMDGPU-Pro drivers for OpenCL, works as expected so it is likely that there is either a bug, or something unfinished, in the Open Source OpenCL driver that is failing. As a side note, in 2015 this issue hit the nVidia side of things generating this issue: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum...=77133#1665089 This might give you an idea of what may be occurring in the AMD / OpenCL driver side of things. I have also reported the issue over at bugs.freedesktop.org I am reporting the bug here as well as I know key stakeholders are here. I hope it is an easy fix Cheers

    • I added to mesa a patch Intel sent me to enable i965 shader cache by default. If you find any issues post it here.

        • Having problems with the PPA and I did a ppa-purge to fix held back packages and now getting this when I try to reinstall Oibaf PPA.

          Code:

          I'm using Linux Mint 18.3 and I fear that if I continue I would not be able to boot into the Cinnamon UI. I know Mint is a bit different in how it handles these things. What's going on?

            from padoka ppa:

            === Revert to original drivers (ALWAYS REVERT TO THE ORIGINAL DRIVERS WHEN CHANGING BETWEEN PADOKA PPAs OR REMOVING PADOKA ENTIRELY===
            To revert to standard Ubuntu drivers type the following in a prompt shell:
            $ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
            $ sudo ppa-purge ppaaulo-miguel-dias/mesa

            to Mint users (info provided by Tomasz Molin)

            If you're on Linux Mint and you want to ppa-purge, you need to specify the corresponding Ubuntu version of your version of Mint.

            For example, Linux Mint 18 is xenial xerus.

            So, the command would be:

            sudo ppa-purge -d xenial ppaaulo-miguel-dias/mesa

            enjoy

              Already did that. I'm running neither Padoka or Oibaf PPA's. I'm trying to install Oibaf and that's what I get. What's keeping those packages held back?

              • Oibaf must have fixed the held back packages but when I did install the drivers I get this error. I've also tried sudo apt clean and this still happens.

                • Dukenukemx I didn't do any changes to packages recently (other than updating code from git), I would suppose this is likely an issue related to Mint having slightly different packages from Ubuntu.

                  Also to zesty / 17.04 users: the distro is EOL, you should upgrade to artful. Before upgrade make sure to remove the PPA packages, then upgrade the distro, then add again the PPA.

                    • Likely some incompatibility between packages. Try to manually remove the two installed packages without touching their dependencies, then reinstall from the PPA.
