I am using LMDE for quite some time. I'm running it on IvyBridge laptop and decided to check how steam for linux works...
Turns out it doesn't, I've heard that mesa 9 is best to run it. inxi -G returns:
Code: Select all
Graphics: Card Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller X.Org 1.12.4 Res: firstname.lastname@example.org
GLX Renderer Mesa DRI Intel Ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 GLX Version 3.0 Mesa 8.0.4
So I've built and installed latest libdrm, installed all other required dependencies. Built Mesa 9.0.3 (osmesa enabled) -> success, make install -> reboot.
Nothing changed inxi -G and glxinfo still returns old mesa version.
Same deal if I used checkinstall instead of make install, aptitude returns package as installed yet inxi -G/glxinfo returns old version.
Is there anything else I've to do to enable mesa 9?
