Has this thread been moved ? I'm sure it wasn't in Gentoo before !
First post certainly has nothing to do with Gentoo !
Sorry, I do most of my mesa and OpenGL stuff on Gentoo64 these days.
This thread in the Raspbian forum, and is about Mesa 19.3.2 being available for testing on Raspbian, so your Gentoo posts are all off topic.
You ought to start a new thread for Mesa on Gentoo discussions in the Gentoo forum.
OR
Start a thread in the graphics programming forum which is OS agnostic.

Testing more stuff using the retropie pi4 weekly dev builds, I don't really notice a speed bump. I'll have to wait until the emulators are built for gles3.

Sorry again, I usually just click on "new posts" read the title to see if I'm interested.
I don't normally read what section it was posted in.
Mesa on Raspbian, Mesa on Gentoo, which part needs testing?

yes saw that too i thought i had messed up somehow as the version kept saying 19.3.2 in glmark even without the test added to sources list so i erased my tests as i could not compare or don't know how to downgrade the version so i erased my previous post

running 'vblank_mode=0 glxgears' gave me the following results
Do you have Compositing on?
I get around 800fps when on, 1400 when off.

Kmscube is working, so now how to do glxgears without x11?

i did not enable it myselve but must have been enabled by default. I went into raspi-config and disabled the xcompmanager entry explicitly.

Now i get the following results (1600 ones are no vnc connected, 1300 ones are with vnc connected but i'm still using updated "test" sources from 1st post, but not sure if that matters)

Code: Select all

8190 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.998 FPS
8181 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1636.127 FPS
8186 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.170 FPS
8186 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.019 FPS
8186 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.194 FPS
8182 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1636.224 FPS
8191 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1638.091 FPS
8173 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1634.546 FPS
8181 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1636.171 FPS
8192 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1638.207 FPS
8186 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.024 FPS
8190 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1637.972 FPS

Slightly off topic but having added "untested" to the sources to try this, is there any reason to keep it in there ?
If I remove it, will apt downgrade the installed mesa to the version in the normal repositories ?

apt will never downgrade unless you force it to. It compares the current (apt) installed version to the latest available version and uses whichever has the higher version number.

I currently have a stable system, and I don't want something "new" in untested to break it, but at the same time I don't want to loose the latest mesa version (which while "untested" seems stable). So it seems I should remove the "untested" from the list and all will be well :-)

Whenever I use something from a "testing" or later version, I always pin that repository at a lower value than 100. This tells apt not to use them unless specifically asked for.
An example on one of my systems:
/etc/apt/prefernces.d/bullseye

Code: Select all

# Pin bullseye to low priority
Package: *
Pin: release n=bullseye
Pin-Priority: 50
If I wanted to use the bullseye version of something, I would use

Code: Select all

sudo apt install -t bullseye apache2
for example. That would pull in the bullseye version of apache2 and anything else it depends on - many of which will be from bullseye, some will be from the current release.

Then you are not trying hard enough :lol:
I got the latest Gentoo64 and did a genup, mesa 19.3.2 seems stable enough for using as a Desktop and testing.
Not worrying about "stable " until USB boot is working and I use something bigger than $4 - 16GB or $10 - 32GB uSD's.
The biggest issue I have is remembering my Pi forum login every time I build or try a new OS.
