Description Eero Tamminen 2018-06-08 12:02:35 UTC
Mesa builds started last night to fail to:
drivers/dri2/platform_wayland.c:48:33: fatal error: wayland-egl-backend.h: No such file or directory

Apparently this file should be now provided by libwayland instead of being included with Mesa.  However, there was no configure error about pkgconfig not finding wayland-egl-backend.pc file provided by libwayland, or it having too old version.

Looking at the guilty commit 1db4ec05462914096b1f243e9b2af7e71cf38622, it seems to be checking for wayland-egl instead, and requiring version 1.15 of it.

E.g. on Ubuntu 16.04, wayland-egl.pc content is:

Name: wayland-egl
Description: Mesa wayland-egl library
Version: 17.2.8
Requires: wayland-client
Libs: -L${libdir} -lwayland-egl
Cflags: -I${includedir}

Which is provided by libegl1-mesa-dev i.e. Mesa, and pc file version is obviously large enough as its version comes from Mesa.

However, libegl1-mesa-dev package doesn't provide any Wayland headers, only EGL ones.

Installing latest version of libwayland from git naturally fixes this, but Mesa autoconfig (and Meson) check is clearly broken.

Eero, I think this patch should fix the issue:
