The addition of a Vulkan SDK RPM to Mageia's repostories.

Postby gukin » Jun 4th, '18, 19:06

Wine under Mageia does not support Vulkan, thus to run Vulkan apps under the SDK must first be download from Lunar G (https://vulkan.lunarg.com/sdk/home#linux) then vulkan must be enabled in the wine SPEC file (--with-vulkan). Unfortunately Lunar G does not provide a i586 SDK so it's not possible to build wine for i586 with Vulkan support.

Despite this, there are Fedora Vulkan i586 RPMs available (http://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/linux/d ... 9.i686.rpm) which can be installed which allow wine to be build --with-vulkan enabled. The RPM does not install cleanly and is missing dependencies but is sufficient to build wine with vulkan.

Vulkan is very much up and coming as THE new 3D toolkit.

Would it be possible to add the Vulkan SDK to Mageia?

Check out https://wiki.mageia.org/en/How_to_report_a_bug_properly#How_to_file_a_package_request

This will show how to formally request a package.

I've requested a package previously and it was built and in testing almost immediately. Given that fedora rpm's exist, I would imagine there should be no real issue getting it built and in testing.

Good luck!

Groovy, thanks for the reminder, I've seen that aspect of bugzilla but didn't remember. Thank you for the link and the reminder.

For completeness sake, this is it: https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23149
which has been marked as a duplicate of the older https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22412

Next time, maybe do a quick if something has been reported already, and vote on that one, otherwise this creates more work for our bugsquad ;)

My apologies, I to search for references to DOOM 2016. Also thank you for the invitation to become an RPM maintainer, I am strongly considering it since I know how swamped the Mageia community is and how something like the Vulkan SDK isn't terribly high on the list of priorities for Mageia.
