I installed a mix of current saucy and raring mesa packages and everything is working fine. KDE too with no need for additional ppa's.

Just one question:
As I stated in a previous post, I am rebuilding every mesa package update with llvm git so that I can get OpenGL 3.0. I see that it takes quite a long time (maybe 10 min for each of the two archs I am building -i386, amd64-, so about 20 min in total). I see the following debian/rules :
ifneq (,$(filter parallel=%,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
NUMJOBS = $(patsubst parallel=%,%,$(filter parallel=%,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
MAKEFLAGS += -j$(NUMJOBS)
I am no programmer but I think that specifies the number of compile jobs. Does that optimise the number of compile jobs? I am asking because I have a FX-8150 but watching the CPU load while compiling, it is not maxed out as I see many cores under 50%. I could just change the line before the endif to MAKEFLAGS += -j8, but I just wanted to know before messing with that option.

Any word on when Saucy gets the rest of Mesa/Xorg? So far it's only wayland and glamor.

I have few spare time for this sorry. I pushed saucy -ati package anyway now (notably include Xv support on glamor, not available in standard Ubuntu packages). I had to disable xmir because patch bitrot.
If you want to sponsor saucy packages you can send me a paypal donation, the link is on the PPA.
@jsa1983: yes, you can try -j8.

thank you for your wonderful work! works beautifully
A question though I want to try Radeon OpenCL, so I read that it requires mesa be compiled with "./autogen.sh --with-dri-drivers="" --with-gallium-drivers=r600 --enable-opencl" flags. Does this ppa enable opencl??

There is no OpenCL currently and I don't plan it soon, unless someone sponsor it .
10-27-2013, 12:52 PM
OpenCL is far from usable in the current stage.
10-27-2013, 01:48 PM
oibaf, think you can add glxinfo (in mesa demos) to create core contexts to this PPA?
That would be pretty handy.

I backported it already in raring (and there is by default in saucy), the package doesn't build on older Ubuntu IIRC, which I'll drop soon anyway.
