    Can anyone with ARM system help with this please: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102573
    It stalled the whole Debian testing.

      Yeah, it's pretty terrible. Testing is still at mesa 13. Is this the dependency holding up gnome-shell 3.26 as well?

        Not sure about Gnome (I'm using KDE), but I had to pull Mesa from unstable to get the 17.x releases (in needs libllvm-5.0 as well). Mesa in testing had really bad luck. First it fell behind because of the freeze, but then it got stuck because of bugs in llvm and gcc and mips arch failures (those are fixed by now), and now because of failed build on armel. Overall it's just like another freeze... I feel like there needs to be an unblocked testing for x86_64.

        Not that it matters for games anyway. I build Mesa master from source, and run games with that separate Mesa explicitly, while system uses packaged one. But I still would prefer newer packages.

          Yeah, I followed a bit the development as well, and you have summarized it pretty well.

          I was thinking exactly the same thing today.

            Btw, qemu 2.10 is now available in unstable.

              Yeah, I noticed. I might end up setting up Qemu emulated ARM build just for that.

                Debian testing Xfce works fine with the arm64 platform. I made a Debian testing Xfce distribution for a Amlogic S912 tvbox.

                  Mesa needs a fix to compile on Armel.

                    I've been thinking about doing the same, but haven't had the time. Do you have any good instructions on how to set it?
