How do you install MESA on Fedora 28

Can anyone provide good instructions for installing mesa on fedora 28

this is for a fx 8320 r9 390
a ryzen 7 2700u laptop
and ryzen 2700 rx 570 8gb


dnf update
dnf builddep mesa # dnf Fedora
downloaded mesa 18.2.2
installed openldap

when I ./configure I get

Package ‘xrandr’, required by ‘virtual:world’, not found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix

The end goal is to install mesa graphics driver on computers, but probably the hardest gpu driver to install a clear guide would be amazing.

Someone more knowledgeable needs to chime in especially regarding your specific cards but as far as I know AMD graphics drivers come with the kernel these days, I have rx460 on f28 and I didn’t need to do anything regarding drivers.

Mesa is already on Fedora by default.

Is there issues you are having?

I do know that the R9 390 was bugged for a long time, but supposedly it’s fixed, but it’s not working for me.
My resolution is stuck at 4:3 1024x768
and I run into the issue above when running ./configure for mesa

Mesa is included in a Fedora install and is currently at 18.05 in Fedora 28. There should be no need to build and install it.

Does the fx832 have onboard video? Any chance Fedora is seeing that and not the 570?
