I run my MX15 install with the testrepo permanently enabled, and these are the *mesa* packages that were upgraded, plus the xserver-xorg-video-* upgrades (which aren't shown).

Code: Select all

libegl1-mesa:amd64
libegl1-mesa-drivers:amd64
libgbm1:amd64
libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64
libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64
libglapi-mesa:amd64
libgles1-mesa:amd64
libgles2-mesa:amd64
libwayland-egl1-mesa:amd64
libxatracker2:amd64
mesa-vdpau-drivers:amd64


But I don't know if there's a single *mesa* package or two that will pull the others in if you aren't running with the testrepo enabled and want to use something like the Test Repo Installer to upgrade them.

Thanks. I saw that too, but was expecting to find some meta-package to point the user to.

What I typically do is enable the test repo, start synaptic and select upgrade for each of the already installed mesa packages. Could be done using MX Test Repo Installer too, it's just that when upgrading many packages I've had MX Test Repo Installer not do anything in the past.

I don't have a great answer, but if the user is not able to use either of the methods suggested, synaptic or TRI, then I would suggest perhaps they shouldn't mess with it or ask for help upgrading if they really need the newer packages.

This should upgrade all the currently installed *mesa* packages.

It's a simulation, remove the "-s" at the end to do it for real.

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep $(dpkg -l libgl1-mesa-dri | awk '{print $3}' | tail -1) | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get install --force-yes -y -s

I am not communicating well here. I'm a new user, and want to install mesa for whatever reason. How do I proceed? Search on "mesa" and install everything I see?

Searching on "mesa" you probably want to mark for upgrade all the *mesa* packages that are shown as being upgradeable.

But I don't know if that will also upgrade packages like libgbm1 & libxatracker2 which are built from the same mesa source package but don't contain the word "mesa" in their packagenames, they should be upgraded too, the cli command I posted will upgrade them.

So the packages are there to begin with, is that it? And all the user has to do is upgrade?

I know nothing about this...

I used the syanptic method and it seemed to upgrade all except libxatracker2 according to your one liner. I'm assuming that they must be depends of some of the mesa packages.

Code: Select all

$ sudo dpkg -l | grep $(dpkg -l libgl1-mesa-dri | awk '{print $3}' | tail -1) | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get install --force-yes -y
