Now when i launch steam it gives this error :
Steam needs to install these additional packages:
libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386, libc6:i386 :frown:
Having the stretch-backports repo enabled and installing those three packages with the "-t stretch-backports" option added to the command looks like it will work in this simulation. Rerun it without the "-s" at the end if you get a good simulation.

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 -t stretch-backports -V -s

Re: Mesa drivers

#22 Post by Stevo » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:58 pm

The point where aptitude was asking for "n" to try another solution was this one:

Code: Select all

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] y
and you accepted it instead. The Qt 4 packages that it wanted to remove were orphaned dependencies from the older version of MX apt-notifier, and should be safe to autoremove:

Code: Select all

sudo apt autoremove
on the command line, or "autoremovable" status tab in Synaptic.

Re: Mesa drivers

#23 Post by KernSpy » Mon Oct 08, 2018 11:50 pm

I would like to update/upgrade mesa on this machine as well. I do have Steam installed, but haven't opened it yet. Been busying doing other things. Should I do this within MX Packager .. or maybe from the commad line?

I found a way to do the Mesa upgrade using MX Package Installer.

For all steps below make sure the "Hide library and developer packages" checkbox is unchecked.

1) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'mesa' in search box, upgrade all installed mesa packages that are shown as upgradeable (will upgrade and/or install 18 packages in total)
2) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'libxatracker2' in search box, upgrade libxatracker2 package that's shown as upgradeable (this will also cause libllvm6.0 to be installed)
3) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'mesa' in search box, upgrade libgl1-mesa-dri package that's shown as upgradeable (it was held back in step 1, it also causes libdrm-amdgpu1 to be upgraded)
If successful - restart.

Next - test steam?

If steam has issues ... Will likely be the same issues as mentioned in this thread:

Yes, you'll need to install the matching versions of those Mesa libraries from backports, also. Libc6:i386 can be installed first from the main Debian repo:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libc6:i386
It might be easier to install the Mesa libs on the command line. Enable the backports repo (in Synaptic, if desired), then run

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386=18.1.6-1~bpo9+1 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386=18.1.6-1~bpo9+1
This is for the current version in backports, and will that certainly change in the future. Then disable the backports repo.


Then .. this solution if needed: viewtopic.php?p=460807#p460807

Different / easier solution?

I would like to update/upgrade mesa on this machine as well. I do have Steam installed, but haven't opened it yet. Been busying doing other things. Should I do this within MX Packager .. or maybe from the commad line?

I found a way to do the Mesa upgrade using MX Package Installer.

For all steps below make sure the "Hide library and developer packages" checkbox is unchecked.

1) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'mesa' in search box, upgrade all installed mesa packages that are shown as upgradeable (will upgrade and/or install 18 packages in total)
2) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'libxatracker2' in search box, upgrade libxatracker2 package that's shown as upgradeable (this will also cause libllvm6.0 to be installed)
3) 'Full App Catalog' tab, select Debian Backports as source, type 'mesa' in search box, upgrade libgl1-mesa-dri package that's shown as upgradeable (it was held back in step 1, it also causes libdrm-amdgpu1 to be upgraded)
If successful - restart.

Next - test steam?

If steam has issues ... Will likely be the same issues as mentioned in this thread:

Yes, you'll need to install the matching versions of those Mesa libraries from backports, also. Libc6:i386 can be installed first from the main Debian repo:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libc6:i386
It might be easier to install the Mesa libs on the command line. Enable the backports repo (in Synaptic, if desired), then run

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386=18.1.6-1~bpo9+1 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386=18.1.6-1~bpo9+1
This is for the current version in backports, and will that certainly change in the future. Then disable the backports repo.


Then .. this solution if needed: viewtopic.php?p=460807#p460807

Different / easier solution?

After restarting your system check if steam works, if not and you see this error:
Steam needs to install these additional packages:

Do this: viewtopic.php?p=460807#p460807

If there is another issue, just make a thread here and people of MX will be happy to help you.

Re: Mesa drivers

#25 Post by Stevo » Tue Oct 09, 2018 1:56 pm

Well....we also have Mesa 18.1.7 in a separate experimental MX repo. I'm not sure if it needs its own key, so I just added its URL as trusted to the MX sources:

Code: Select all

deb [trusted=yes] http://mxrepo.com/mx/experimental/ stretch test \
It also has a few media players that are built against the newer Mesa and va-api packages in it.

But it also needs the MX test repo enabled for at least the llvm-6.0 packages from it. The advantage of these repos versus stretch-backports is that you don't have to force install the version, instead they are seen as normal upgrades. But be careful not to upgrade everything willy-nilly from our test repo.

Hi stevo, I got started before I read your latest post.

I followed kmathern's instructions. I did line 1 .. Was successful. Started - Steam. It downloaded update 280,953 KB file. Expanded the file and installed it. Steam started up no problem.

Closed steam - Did line 2. Upgraded - libxatracker2 - Successful. Started - Steam - No issues.

Did line 3 but there wasn't anything left available for upgrade.

Well, I just fixed it. It seems that this package "libgl1-mesa-dri" didn't install/upgrade properly. I open MXPI again and searched for "mesa" and there it was. Marked it, upgraded it and now
