Description Peter Robinson 2012-02-10 12:17:12 EST
The mesa 8.0 snapshot seems to compile OK on ARM but it appears to be missing most (all?) of the HW drivers. I can't see anything obvious as to why they're missing with an initial look.

Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2012-02-13 12:28:28 EST
Ugh, mesa buildsystem.  It default to xlib or dri for libGL based on architecture and arm isn't in the list for DRI.

Fixed in 8.0-0.2.fc17 (just pushed).  Probably we should look into better subpackaging on arm though, there do exist pci arm machines but they're definitely the minority.

Quite happy to work with you on the changes to the packaging, the amount of devices with PCI is increasing but whether they'll be widely available enough in the short term to bother is another question entirely :-)
