This is the first time I've seen this error from Mesa since it usually compiles fine.

The error is simple enough to understand and resolve, but my confusion comes from which entry to remove from my make.conf.

The error is "Problem encountered: Only one i915 provider can be built" which made me look at my make.conf:

Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="intel i915 i965"


I am not sure which entries to remove since Mesa has never complained before.

Xorg loads the following drivers:

Code:

[    49.670] (==) Matched intel as autoconfigured driver 0
[    49.670] (==) Matched intel as autoconfigured driver 1
[    49.670] (==) Matched modesetting as autoconfigured driver 2

        "Default Screen Section" for depth/fbbpp 24/32


So from this I gather I can remove the i965 entry, but I am not sure about the intel entry...

If I recall I added the i965 entry some time ago when doing research on getting hardware acceleration support to work on my laptop top. I am not sure if this entry actually fixed the hardware acceleration or not, but it is currently in a working state.

Anyone have any input?

Thanks

I am confused by that chart, which is why my make.conf seems to have both video card entries.

lspci | grep -i VGA states that I have a 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) which is i915. https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03506017 also states I have a 3rd gen processor. But intel https://ark.intel.com/products/65707/Intel-Core-i5-3317U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_60-GHz states that the processors code name was Ivybridge which is i965.

Do I remove the i965 entry and go by what lspci tells me?
