while uninstalling the nvidia driver (for an update), I noticed, that mesa (using latest git from ppa) had overwritten symlinks created by the nvidia installer.
from the uninstall log:
The previously installed symlink ‘/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGLX_indirect.so.0’ has target ‘libGLX_mesa.so.0’, but it was installed with target ‘libGLX_nvidia.so.440.66.07’. /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGLX_indirect.so.0 will not be uninstalled.
That also happend with libEGL, or libGLESvX cannot remember which.
Not that I noticed problems, but could it potentially create some?
Do I actually need mesa when the nvidia driver is installed?
Should I just replace the links mesa creates with the ones pointing to the nvidia libs, if I update mesa again?
System: linux mint 19.3
Thanks for you help
