Description Derk W te Bokkel 2018-04-22 00:04:15 UTC
media-libs/mesa-18.0.1  all apps work fine

Updating to media-libs/mesa-18.1.0_rc1 results in no visible screen display of
google-chrome, firefox-bin shows busy timer and fails to start,

libreoffice shows start up banner and freezes

running xfce most simple applications appear to be fine ..

did not check all installed apps.

reverting back to mesa-18.0.1 all works again..

Comment 1 wbrana 2018-04-22 13:44:04 UTC
rc version should be masked. it seems it isn't.
Comment 2 ciaran 2018-04-23 01:05:47 UTC
rolled back to 18.0.0 and i3 doesn't crash at startup now. Hard lock, causes keyboard and display to freeze with cursor, no windows, black screen. I didn't see anything in the Xorg.log.old to indicate an issue.
Comment 3 farmboy0 2018-04-23 19:46:53 UTC
Not sure whether this warrants its own bug report.
With this package Plasma Wayland falls back to software rasterizer due an egl error at init.
Reverting to mesa 18.0.1 fixes this.
Comment 4 Ingo Brunberg 2018-04-29 08:29:33 UTC
Mesa-18.1 only works with the modesetting-ddx driver as explained in this commit to recent xorg-server:

I bet this bug originates from not using the modesetting driver.
Comment 5 ciaran 2018-05-01 04:10:34 UTC
I am using x11-drivers/xf86-video-amdgpu-1.3.0 is there a requirement to use something like 1.4.0 or 18.0.1 ?
Comment 6 ciaran 2018-05-01 07:49:56 UTC
no, 18.0.1 doesn't make a difference, perhaps a 18.1.0 would, but no dice.
Comment 7 Ingo Brunberg 2018-05-01 09:41:14 UTC
You should use the modesetting driver. To do so, change or add in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/whatever.conf in 'Section "Device"' the driver directive to 'Driver "modesetting"'.
Comment 8 Derk W te Bokkel 2018-05-10 15:23:01 UTC
okay google-chrome does produce a window without any decorations just an image of what is underneath which you can move about but does not display anything else not even borders etc. as tested with mesa-18.1.0_rc3. 

still everything works fine with mesa-18.0.3.
Comment 9 Derk W te Bokkel 2018-05-11 11:33:54 UTC
mucking about after reading bug 650228 I added --enable-gtk#3 to the xfwm4 (git sourced ) ebuild and then chrome displays properly with mesa-18.1.0_rc3

with xorg-server-1.20.0, xorg-drivers-1.20, xf86-video-intel-2.99.917_p20180214
Comment 10 Derk W te Bokkel 2018-05-11 13:26:12 UTC
added bug for ebuild for xfwm4-9999 for testing #655474
Comment 11 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2018-06-08 05:14:01 UTC
Please test mesa-18.1.1-r1.
