Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186366
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
libOSMesa is missing. It used to be in Fedora Core 4 in xorg-x11-libs package,
but now this has apparently been broken up to smaller packages, one package for
each lib. Also, /usr/include/GL/osmesa.h exists in mesa-libGL-devel. However,
no package for libOSMesa exists, and it is not present in mesa-libGL.
OSMesa is an important software component for batch rendering images without X
server or even graphics hardware. I hope it has just slipped and it is not
intentional to leave it out.
Appears to be mainly an upstream issue in that it does not appear to be possible
to build both a DRI and OSMesa capable version of libGL. Filed upstream.
Created attachment 129630 [details]
OpenSUSE Mesa 6.4.2 spec file
This is the OpenSUSE spec file which *apears* to build the OSMesa library
Fixed in rawhide for FC6.
