  1. OK, for completion I have also tested mesa-17.3.0. With mesa-17.2.7, glxgears and Avogadro worth both in classic and gallium mode, whereas chimera-bin segfaults with gallium. This is better than mesa-17.2.0 in which Avogadro also segfaults in classic mode. For whatever puzzling reasons, adding extra flags (see bellow) seems to help even with 17.2.0, which now it is able to run glxgears in classic mode... With mesa-17.3.0 all three applications work fine so far both in classic and gallium mode. As gallium is reported to be better, for the time being and pending real-life testing, I pe

  3. I can confirm that mesa-17.2.7 solves the issue. So far, it works fine both in classic and gallium modes. I will submit an update, should I encounter any issue in real life usage. Gentoo also has 17.3.0 but, like 17.2.0, those are development versions and, therefore, are expected to be buggy, In mesa-x.y.z, z=0 means development, one should stay away from those versions. The higher the z, the better stability one should expect.
  4. OK, it seems to be a bug in the driver affecting mesa-17.1.0_rc4 and possibly mesa-17.1 I have mesa-17.2.0, but both the problem and the workaround are identical to: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100984 https://bugs.gentoo.org/618206 eselecting classic mode as opposed to gallium allows me to run OpenGL applications. The solution they propose is upgrading to mesa-17.2.6, which I am tempted to do...
  5. I didn't include the firmware blobs in the kernel because I understood it was not strictly required. Should I? I do not use glamor because my card doesn't support it. $ uname -a Linux minchix 4.14.4-gentoo #1 SMP Wed Dec 13 00:28:42 CET 2017 x86_64 Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N455 @ 1.66GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux $ equery u xf86-video-intel Unavailable repository 'gentoo' referenced by masters entry in '/var/lib/layman/palemoon/metadata/layout.conf' Unavailable repository 'gentoo' referenced by masters entry in '/var/lib/layman/science/metadata/layout.conf' [ Legend : U - fina
  6. Hi, I have just installed Funtoo, including X, with the Debian kernel as per the manual and then built a tailored Gentoo 4.14 kernel. Then I emerged LXDE and a number of applications. All seems to be running fine (I have updated world and performed a number of consistency checks, all good). However when I try to run an OpenGL application it segfaults. I have tried sci-chem/chimera-bin (two versions), sci-chem/avogadro, sci-chem/pymol and glxgears. Same result. They all emerge just fine but they segfault immediately when I run them. No problems with Libreoffice, Firefox, Gimp, Inkscap
  7. Thanks jhan and Oleg. Yes a guy in the Gentoo forums claims that a generous swap file and I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING="1" emerge chromium actually do the trick. I haven't tried yet because I am facing a more urgent issue. I will ask in the Desktop section.
  8. Sorry, I have posted this to the wrong section and I do not seem to be able to move it or delete it. Hi, I have tried to emerge www-client/chromium on Funtoo but apparently one needs 3 GB of RAM in order to accomplish that (64-bit). I only have 2 GB and cannot be upgraded (Atom N455). Is there any workaround? Should all open-source Chrome derivatives, such as Iridium, present the same issue? Firefox and PaleMoon (the later with an old gcc version) emerge just fine... Best, Miro PS: The reason for compiling the entire OS on this Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3s w
