Mesa 21 makes games crash and work slow.

Hello. I use Intel i5-3230 on my laptop. After rescent update to Mesa 21.0.2 i have got some problems with games. Wine started give me

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadFBConfig
  Major opcode of failed request:  152 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  0 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  220
  Current serial number in output stream:  220

Games in steam works with really low fps if I use proton or native then freeze after 10 seconds. I reverted to Mesa 20.3.5 and it works just fine. But I cant update my system because some packages require mesa 21 for example kwin. Is it problem with Mesa or my processor just do not support new version of Opengl from Mesa 21? This is my glxinfo -B

As I understand my processor supports only opengl 4.2?

Any way how to fix this problem? Should I wait for new versions of Mesa or my System is just too old for it and I must stay at 20.3.5 Mesa?

Hi and welcome to the Forum :slight_smile:
I suspect it’s more of a wine issue, I see this on the mailing list about Mesa:

Thank you.

This does not explain why I have performance issues in steam. Ok with games that use Proton, but native games work slow and freeze too.
So I just want to know is it really some Mesa / Wine Bug and I need wait for new versions of Mesa and Wine or my processor does not support Mesa 21 and I am stuck with 20.3.5. Like with Nvidia 340/390 drivers and I need to think how to update my system excluding packages that requires mesa 21+.

TW is for developers. You already knew all pros & cons. You may use Leap with standard repos with old hardware.
