`Mesa <https://mesa3d.org>`_ - The 3D Graphics Library
======================================================


Source
------

This repository lives at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa.
Other repositories are likely forks, and code found there is not supported.


Build & install
---------------

You can find more information in our documentation (`docs/install.html
<https://mesa3d.org/install.html>`_), but the recommended way is to use
Meson (`docs/meson.html <https://mesa3d.org/meson.html>`_):

.. code-block:: sh

  $ mkdir build
  $ cd build
  $ meson ..
  $ sudo ninja install


Support
-------

Many Mesa devs hang on IRC; if you're not sure which channel is
appropriate, you should ask your question on `Freenode's #dri-devel
<irc://chat.freenode.net#dri-devel>`_, someone will redirect you if
necessary.
Remember that not everyone is in the same timezone as you, so it might
take a while before someone qualified sees your question.
