  • I don't have a public repo, the source is in the PPA.
    Open https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archiv...vers/+packages and click on the package, the source is under that.
    For example the latest mesa disco (failed build) is this: https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archiv...oibaf~d.tar.xz

    Thanks for your interest.

      I imagined a repo with you script to manage stuff and deltas and stuff. But right, a debdiff or something... Does it have to work for all b-c-d at the same time or just disco?

      • Inside the xz there is a debian directory. I use the same source for disco, cosmic and bionic, just change the version number inside debian/changelog. (xenial required a different debian dir, but I no longer support it)
        It fails to build just on disco, but it builds fine on bionic and cosmic.

        • The issue on disco is fixed now (with no PPA code change...).

            • Hi hope somebody can help me with my issue.
              Ubuntu 18.10 (non-lts, normal) on top of ESXi box, RX590, gives messages
              Code:
              [    5.154978] amdgpu 0000:13:00.0: BAR 6: can't assign [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x20000000] (bogus alignment)
              [    5.432083] amdgpu 0000:13:00.0: Direct firmware load for amdgpu/polaris10_k_mc.bin failed with error -2
              lspci shows:
              Code:
              13:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X] (rev e1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
                  Subsystem: Sapphire Technology Limited Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 4GB
              Added this repository and nothing changed. Can't install AMDGPU-PRO as only 18.04 is supported.
              Windows 10 is doing ok, recognizing as RX590.
              Maybe I need to update amdgpu, haven't found how.

              • So the fix was to upgrade to disco, great.

                • Problem is, I dumped Ubuntu & installed Debian, latest firmware-amd package looks to be 15 days outdated in debian. Now it just shows black screen with mouse pointer.

                  • Since 1 May mesa packages on oibaf PPA (for all 4 supported Ubuntu versions) are built with LTO! Binaries size:
                    • dri drivers are 5% smaller with LTO;
                    • gallium drivers are 9% smaller with LTO.

                    • This is mostly because I also publish dbg packages in addition to release packages. Dbg packages uses lot of space, check their size in my PPA.

                      Also I manage 4 Ubuntu versions.

                      And I update the packages twice every day, and older packages require some days before being purged, increasing PPA size.

                      Lastly I also have some other bonus packages, like newer versions of 0 AD game, which is a relatively big package.

                      Llvm has nothing to do with the size.
