<H1>Environment Variables</H1>
<p>
Mesa supports the following environment variables:
Normally, no environment variables need to be set. Most of the environment
variables used by Mesa/Gallium are for debugging purposes, but they can
sometimes be useful for debugging end-user issues.
</p>
<H2>LibGL environment variables</H2>
<ul>
<li>LIBGL_DEBUG - If defined debug information will be printed to stderr.
If set to 'verbose' additional information will be printed.
<li>LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH - colon-separated list of paths to search for DRI drivers
<li>LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT - forces an indirect rendering context/connection.
<li>LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE - if set, always use software rendering
<li>LIBGL_NO_DRAWARRAYS - if set do not use DrawArrays GLX protocol (for debugging)
</ul>
<H2>Core Mesa environment variables</H2>
<ul>
<li>MESA_NO_ASM - if set, disables all assembly language optimizations
<li>MESA_NO_MMX - if set, disables Intel MMX optimizations
<li>MESA_NO_3DNOW - if set, disables AMD 3DNow! optimizations
<li>MESA_NO_SSE - if set, disables Intel SSE optimizations
<li>MESA_DEBUG - if set, error messages are printed to stderr.
If the value of MESA_DEBUG is "FP" floating point arithmetic errors will
generate exceptions.
<li>MESA_NO_DITHER - if set, disables dithering, overriding glEnable(GL_DITHER)
<li>MESA_DEBUG - if set, error messages are printed to stderr. For example,
if the application generates a GL_INVALID_ENUM error, a corresponding error
message indicating where the error occured, and possibly why, will be
printed to stderr.<br>
If the value of MESA_DEBUG is 'FP' floating point arithmetic errors will
generate exceptions.
<li>MESA_TEX_PROG - if set, implement conventional texture env modes with
fragment programs (intended for developers only)
<li>MESA_TNL_PROG - if set, implement conventional vertex transformation
......@@ -28,11 +49,14 @@ Setting this variable automatically sets the MESA_TEX_PROG variable as well.
<li>MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE - can be used to enable/disable extensions.
A value such as "GL_EXT_foo -GL_EXT_bar" will enable the GL_EXT_foo extension
and disable the GL_EXT_bar extension.
<li>MESA_GLSL - <a href="shading.html#envvars">shading language options</a>

OpenGL conformance. If set to 2, always use software rendering.

<ul>
<li>R300_NO_TCL - if set, disable hardware-accelerated Transform/Clip/Lighting.

<h2>EGL environment variables</h2>
<p>
Mesa EGL supports different sets of environment variables. See the
<a href="egl.html">Mesa EGL</a> page for the details.
</p>
<h2>Gallium environment variables</h2>
<ul>
<li>GALLIUM_PRINT_OPTIONS - if non-zero, print all the Gallium environment
variables which are used, and their current values.
<li>GALLIUM_NOSSE - if non-zero, do not use SSE runtime code generation for
shader execution
<li>GALLIUM_NOPPC - if non-zero, do not use PPC runtime code generation for
shader execution
<li>GALLIUM_DUMP_CPU - if non-zero, print information about the CPU on start-up
<li>TGSI_PRINT_SANITY - if set, do extra sanity checking on TGSI shaders and
print any errors to stderr.
<LI>DRAW_FSE - ???
<LI>DRAW_NO_FSE - ???
<li>DRAW_USE_LLVM - if set to zero, the draw module will not use LLVM to execute
shaders, vertex fetch, etc.
</ul>
<h3>Softpipe driver environment variables</h3>
<ul>
<li>SOFTPIPE_DUMP_FS - if set, the softpipe driver will print fragment shaders
to stderr
<li>SOFTPIPE_DUMP_GS - if set, the softpipe driver will print geometry shaders
to stderr
<li>SOFTPIPE_NO_RAST - if set, rasterization is no-op'd. For profiling purposes.
</ul>
<h3>LLVMpipe driver environment variables</h3>
<ul>
<li>LP_NO_RAST - if set LLVMpipe will no-op rasterization
<li>LP_DEBUG - a comma-separated list of debug options is acceptec. See the
source code for details.
<li>LP_PERF - a comma-separated list of options to selectively no-op various
parts of the driver. See the source code for details.
<li>LP_NUM_THREADS - an integer indicating how many threads to use for rendering.
Zero turns of threading completely. The default value is the number of CPU
cores present.
</ul>
<p>
Other Gallium drivers have their own environment variables. These may change
frequently so the source code should be consulted for details.
