Description Hans de Goede 2017-01-12 17:59:12 UTC
Spec URL: https://fedorapeople.org/~jwrdegoede/libglvnd.spec
SRPM URL: https://fedorapeople.org/~jwrdegoede/libglvnd-0.2.999-6.gitdc16f8c.fc25.src.rpm
libglvnd is an implementation of the vendor-neutral dispatch layer for
arbitrating OpenGL API calls between multiple vendors on a per-screen basis.

Note libglvnd replaces mesa's libGL.so.1, etc. Which means that it cannot be installed (due to file conflicts) without a mesa with glvnd support rebuild against it (which libglvnd will then call into when using the standard foss drivers). Here is a srpm of a mesa pkg with this enabled:


Building this mesa requires to first build the libglvnd package and then installing it on a system without mesa and building mesa there. If you want to test you can e.g. use mock with a local repo with libglvnd in there.

A scratch build of this can be found here:
