I found a post about Vulkan for Intel graphic card (the topic is here) and decided to try out. It said that it will be available for 5th and higher generation Intel cards. I have an old 3rd gen card which will probably not work, right? I mean Vulkan is a library, so the problem is on Mesa which is basically run Vulkan, and it will work only with new cards, right? Is there any way to run a Vulkan on my old Intel?
I looked more about mesa.
According to Mesa, they released version 13.0.3.
glxinfo | grep Open I found out that I have:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.3.2 OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 3.30
Time to update, even if Vulkan will not work, installing a new version of Mesa is good. For that, we need to download the new mesa, and according to Mesa :
The general approach is the standard:
sudo make install
But Debian - wiki says that this is not a good idea. How can it be installed correctly; is there any way to do it from apt-get? Is it possible to install it on my system? If it is possible, which dependency must I install/update to do so? On Intel's website, I found out a list/recipe. Do I need install all of that list:
2016Q4 Intel Graphics Stack Recipe Released Notes by 20 Dec, 2016
in order to update my Mesa?
System : Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 64-bit
Graphics : Intel® Ivybridge Mobile
glxinfo | grep Open
Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller
Kernel driver in use: i915
I'm asking in order to understand how it work, and how to do it correctly, before I will do anything.
