Thanks for clarifying!

I guess this is just a heads-up then that adding python2-mako to native-inputs is likely enough to make 17.3.1 work, whenever that comes out :).

Hey Marius,

Thanks a lot for improving and fixing the patches!

Regarding your questions; when I tried to build the Vulkan drivers on
Mesa on i686 it failed to build.
I figured it was better to just leave it at x86_86 for now. In a future
core-updates cycle it might be a good idea to start looking into other

Retroarch won't be affected if your hardware doesn't support Vulkan, it
defaults to OpenGL anyway. It's just a setting you can modify

OK, thanks for confirming.

I also had an unrelated question. I saw that you updated Mesa to 17.2.7.
I'm running 17.3.0 myself right now.
Is it customary in Guix to wait for the first point release, or do you
want me to send in a patch?
It really only consists of updating the version, checksum and adding a
native-input python2-mako.

The Mesa release notes[0] has this blurb when the minor version changes:

Mesa 17.3.0 is a new development release. People who are concerned with
stability and reliability should stick with a previous release or wait
for Mesa 17.3.1.

Since we will be "stuck" on this Mesa version for some time, I prefer
sticking to the stable branches.  17.2.7 is also newer than 17.3.0 :-)
