Building Mesa from source and using Mesa master
skyrrd commented on 13 April 2019 at 7:33 pm UTC

Any news about building mesa-git on Debian? Is a chroot or vm still needed? I'm currently eyeing the switch to debian buster, but having to use older versions of mesa is holding me back. I know of ppas but I would prefer to build mesa myself

The only reason I'm using VM is a separation from the main system, i.e. just for neatness. However I don't build 32-bit Mesa. That would likely require a VM / chroot, due to complications in setting up cross compilation. I got tired trying to make it work. Someone suggested, that if you build it with clang instead of gcc, cross compilation might work. I haven't tried it yet.

If you want newer Mesa than one in buster, you can also install Mesa packages from experimental. It has 19.0.2. See: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/mesa
That's what I use for 32-bit anyway, due to mess of cross compiling it.

You can find my build script here if it's useful:

Note, you need to have llvm repo configured, for using latest llvm snapshot.
