    it's probably out of date (last change 2009).

    If you just want mesa there's no voodoo involved:

    Code:
    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa
    cd mesa
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-gallium-drivers="<drivername>"
    make -jX
    make install (<-- this will overwrite your packages installed by your package manager, in case you want to use the result system wide)
    you may have to adjust the "--libdir" parameter and more config arguments are available to enable (experimental) features (see ./autogen.sh --help).

    Are any non devs here running mesa from git? Are the build instructions up to date (http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building)? I mean would I get it compiled on a vanilla Fedra 17 / Ubuntu 12.4 installation? Are there eventually scripts available (fetch and build) for the lazy ones?

    If you aren't satisfied with seeing Mesa lag far behind the latest OpenGL standard and come up short when in the areas of performance and features compared to some of the proprietary graphics drivers, they always welcome additional help...
