Hi All,

I compiled Mesa 18.1.2 in a virtual e5500 QEMU PPC64 machine today.

Download: mesa-18.1.2-linux-powerpc.tar.gz

PLEASE test it.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi Allan,

Many thanks for testing Mesa 18.1.2! I compiled it on ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC yesterday. I think the problem with Casey’s Mesa is that he compiled it on a new Debian version and therefore it needs new libs which don’t exist on old Ubuntu versions.

Cheers,
Christian

I just appreciate all the work you guys put in for us mere users. It really has up the value I get out of my investment in my X5000.

Googling Mesa-18.1.2 and reading about your compilation for X5000 Linux gives me no hint at whether it does anything I would notice, or even if it would run on the machine I have. Could you give a hint?

Installed and working well on 16.04.6 with 2 cards in (using your older 5RC with no DRM).

Cheers

No, I'm just wondering what it does, and if it sounds like something I could use, would I have to make any changes to my machine to use it.
Since I never do anything with graphics beyond what I can do with Scribus, I'm guessing it would be useless to me, but I couldn't help wondering.
