  • The issue on 17.10 should be fixed now.

    Comment


    • To artful/17.10 users: I just uploaded updated, rebased mesa packages, I disabled some stuff which probably isn't very useful nowadays: XvMC and OpenMAX video drivers, optional classic swrast and broken gallium i915.
      Please test and let me know.

      • I encountered no issues enabling and after a few days purging your ppa on 17.10 went quite smooth both ways. Nice work

        • Hello, I just updated the drivers, and a wild flicker appeared. Apparently the previous versions are no longer in the PPA so I can't revert?

          I think these are the relevant packages, so one of them probably has the issue. After these updates my game started showing huge graphical glitches. The main menu flickers (but it stops flickering briefly if I adjust graphical settings). The game itself is an unplayable mess. There's something about shaders.

          Anyway, grepped apt's history log with "oibaf":

          • Ubuntu 17.10 running on an Intel 8700K with iGPU(i915) and updated yesterday and it completely broke Wayland. Major pixelation and flicker (stops momentarily if I move my mouse). I'm able to switch to Xorg and login fine though, so it's Wayland specific. Following packages were updated:

            libgl1-mesa libgbm1 libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx libglapi-mesa
            libgles2-mesa libwayland-egl1-mesa libxtracker2 mesa-va-drivers
            mesa-vdpau-drivers

            Any ideas?

              • Hello,
                I have a problem with playing video. I updated some days ago (18 Nov) and after that my Kodi start crashes when I try to use vdpau (Xorg crash). I think that problem with mesa packet.

                  • 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.
