  • Any workaround to install this package on Debian?

    Comment


    • Hey, just wanted to say thanks to Oibaf for putting together this PPA, has REALLY helped sort out GPU drivers on my machine (running Linux Mint 18.3 mate). Just have a quick question.

      I get an update for mesa just about everyday, sometimes twice a day, actually rare to see a day without a mesa update. Are the drivers actually being updated that quickly or is something else going on? Nothing bad has happened, just curious.

      • I wanna ask someone who's using Oibaf's PPA on Pitcairn and switched to AMDGPU. Has it been stable for you? I have a Radeon HD 7850 and AMDGPU on kernel 4.15 and 4.16 will freeze Cinnamon within a few minutes from booting. Kernels 4.13 and 4.14 won't but applications like Firefox and Dolphin will freeze instead. I've found 4.13 to be the most stable.

        I have to switch back to Radeon but I want that Vulkan goodness from AMDGPU. Has anyone with Radeon HD 7000 series or whatever Pitcairn GPU to be stable with AMDGPU?

        • Hello, I have some problem with this ppa and ubuntu 18.04, 16.04 and 17.10, driver is nouveau on nv43(GeForce 6600), it can't work.

              After removing the drivers via ppa-purge everything was working again.
              Mesa devs decided to go with libwayland-egl1 directly starting wayland 1.15 and ditch the in-house libwayland-egl1-mesa altogether.
              just remove libwayland-egl1-mesa and install libwayland-egl1, and everything will work again.

              Im waiting on debian to decide HOW they want to fix this packaging mess (redirect, overwrite, whatever).

              sorry for the inconvenience.

              BTW this is for padoka ppa but oibafs is suffering the same problem.

              • I made some fixes, can you try it again?

                • After the recent updates, my computer won't boot with the Oibaf drivers.

                  XOrg crashes before the Window Manager loads but leaves no error that I can find.

                  Any clue what could cause this and how to fix this? Do I need to update my kernel, or change my kernel modules. Do I need to switch to GDM from LightDM? (Mate Edition still uses LightDM)

                    I also have this problem. I tested both Padoka and Oibaf PPAs but my PC won't boot.

                    • Same problem here in AMD┬« A10-7860k radeon r7 Kaveri.

                      the system enter in a loop before reach the GDM screen to enter the user-password.

                      The only solution was ppa-purge the ppa.

                      Same with padoka ppa. (Actually worst, the ppa-purge gives a lot of errors with padoka's ppa)

                      Any solution?
