Description Andrew P. Lentvorski 2019-11-19 03:24:36 UTC
I really don't know where to send this as it's not really a *driver* bug per se.

If I do:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I get a bunch of updates (I specifically wanted the vulkan ones), but glx.h disappears (other files may disappear, but this one causes me a lot of grief).

Executing ppa-purge brings it back.

IMO this is a 'oibaf bug', it should declare a dependency to some package that now brings those headers, libglvnd-dev?
Comment 2 Andrew P. Lentvorski 2019-11-26 06:40:21 UTC
Okay, so where do I go to report this bug?  oibaf points me here (see below) and closing this bug points nowhere.  Searching on launchpad seems to give me no way to report a new bug.

Quoting https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers:

Point me at the place to file the bug, and I'll go file it.

Thanks.

Maybe try asking about this here:
https://answers.launchpad.net/~oibaf

The problem likely is that the version of glvnd in oibaf is simply too old and this ppa should ship a more new one which provides the missing development headers.

Thanks.  But nothing on that site anywhere allows me to do anything resembling filing a bug report.  Maybe I'm being completely obtuse and missing something obvious, but I suspect it's intentional and my account is too new/some hidden score too low to be able to file a bug.

That's very frustrating and it is irritating that I probably will have to slag oibaf on one of the hacker websites in order to get some attention just to file a stupid bug report.

Thanks for all the help.  Sorry to both you folks with something irrelevant.

You can close this report now.

Bother not both.  Stupid autocorrect.
Comment 6 Andrew P. Lentvorski 2019-11-27 01:27:30 UTC
Filed to launchpad using the email submission interface.  Hopefully that will work.
