Now that I can install
mesa-amber 21.3.8-4 because my graphics card is not compatible with mesa-22, but when I reboot sddm stays black without even go to a tty and I have to use manjaro-chroot in a pendrive to go back to the new mesa-22.
Is mesa-amber ready for use? Did it needs some intervention in settings?
I downgrade mesa-22 to mesa-21.3.7
I use modesetting in X11

mesa-amber-21.3.8 is not just mesa-21.3.7 with an update?
Mesa Amber does not have all the Gallium and vulkan drivers that regular mesa does/did.
As far as I can see in it’s PKGBUILD, it’s literally just a couple of DRI drivers.
I have an old Intel i7 with graphics that needs this driver.
“Intel i965 driver for Intel(R) Ivybridge Desktop”
/usr/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so belongs to the intel-media-driver package, but when I look at the libva package :
Optional Deps : intel-media-driver: backend for Intel GPUs (>= Broadwell)
libva-vdpau-driver: backend for Nvidia and AMD GPUs
libva-intel-driver: backend for Intel GPUs (<= Haswell)
intel-media-driver is for Broadwell and more recent processors, the right package to install would be libva-intel-driver for IvyBridge.
I think I posted the wrong information,
vainfo is for video acceleration.
I need to post the information about the driver in use now by mesa.
I uninstalled the intel-media-driver
I am just looking for how to install mesa-amber and make it work, as with mesa-22 some programs dont work.

Mesa 21.3.8 to our testing branch. Mesa 22.0.1 should be soon available in unstable.
I installed mesa-21.3.8-1 from testing repo and it worked too, but from now should I not be using mesa-amber?
If I installed mesa-amber sddm is just a black screan with a mouse. Going to tty2 I am able to iniciate with startx Xfce but no GL.
I forgot to tell that I use Xfce,
The mesa update to 22.0.1-3 solve the problema.
