    Question Problem installing latest mesa 7.1 on debian

    Hey everybody!

    I'm trying to make use of the new 3d support in the open source ati drivers for my rv535 card, this requires me to install beta version of the mesa libraries. However, no matter which way I try to install these libraries the do not work. Crying or Very sad

    I tried compiling and installing the versions from git and from their home page. Everything seems to compile and install fine, but when I run "glxinfo" it still says I am using the old version of mesa.

    I even tried to install mesa from debian experimental, still, glxinfo says I am using the old version of mesa. But the experimental packages are installed.


    paul@Paul:~/radeon/packages$
    dpkg -l |grep mesaii libgl1-mesa-dri 7.1~rc3-1 A free implementation of the OpenGL API -- DRI modules
    ii libgl1-mesa-glx 7.1~rc3-1 A free implementation of the OpenGL API -- GLX runtime
    ii libglu1-mesa 7.1~rc3-1 The OpenGL utility library (GLU)
    ii libglw1-mesa 7.1~rc3-1 A free implementation of the OpenGL API -- runtime
    ii libosmesa6 7.1~rc3-1 Mesa Off-screen rendering extension
    ii mesa-utils 7.1~rc3-1 Miscellaneous Mesa GL utilities
    There is proof that 7.1 is installed.

    And there is proof that 7.0 is being used.

    Any idea why something would be installed but not used?
    It must be something stupid. Embarassed

    Thanks everyone.

    Try "locate libGL.so" to see what you have around on your hard drive. Then run for instance "dpkg -S /usr/lib/libGL.so.1" to see to which package they belong.

    You can also run 'ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo' to see which libGL.so.1 file glxinfo is linking against.
