Libdrm 2.4.76 Released With Vega Support

Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 29 March 2017 at 02:32 PM EDT. 4 Comments
Libdrm 2.4.76 is now available with among the changes being the updates needed for AMDGPU Vega10 support.

Marek Olšák announced the release today of libdrm 2.4.76 with the needed Mesa DRM library changes for Vega10, a few Intel updates, and other miscellaneous updates to this library. The list of changes can be found via this mailing list post.

With this libdrm update coming so soon after landing the Vega10 patches and the release being tagged by Marek, this is likely a sign he will be soon bumping the libdrm requirement on Mesa Git so he can go ahead and land the ~140 Vega patches for RadeonSI. Rather than waiting for the Vega10 support to hit the mainline AMDGPU Linux kernel code, it's already been communicated they will land the Mesa changes earlier.
