    I dropped the d3d12 gallium and video drivers, they now requires a newer directx headers still not available in Ubuntu and they are not very useful anyway.

      • Packages for 20.04/focal and 21.10/impish from now are no longer updated and will be removed next month.

        Upgrade to 22.04/jammy (or even 22.10/kinetic) if you want to continue using the updated packages from the PPA.


        • Disabled not-so-useful d3d12 stuff because of issue 6733.
