This is the Docker image to build mesa Debian packages for the Chrome OS container.


Configuration is handled via environment variables in the Dockerfile. After changes are made the image will need to be regenerated.

Generating Docker image

The Docker image can be created with:

sudo docker build --tag=buildmesa_stretch .

To export the base Docker image to use within the continuous build system:

sudo docker save buildmesa_stretch:latest | \
    xz -T 0 -z > buildmesa_stretch.tar.xz

The packages are built with gbp-buildpackage within a chroot of the Docker container. The chroots for each architecture can be pre-generated and cached with:

name=bm$(date +%s)
sudo docker run --privileged --name=$name -it buildmesa_stretch \
sudo docker commit $name buildmesa_stretch:setup

To export the Docker image with cached chroot. This image is too large to use within the continuous build system:

sudo docker save buildmesa_stretch:setup | \
    xz -T 0 -z > buildmesa_stretch-setup.tar.xz

Building packages

To build the packages using the image with cached chroot with artifacts written to $PWD/artifacts:

sudo docker run \
    --privileged \
    --volume=$PWD/artifacts:/artifacts \
    -it buildmesa_stretch:setup ./

To build the packages using the base image with artifacts written to $PWD/artifacts:

sudo docker run \
    --privileged \
    --volume=$PWD/artifacts:/artifacts \
    -it buildmesa_stretch

To import the tarball Docker image on another machine:

sudo docker load -i buildmesa_stretch.tar.xz

Building packages from untested changes

To test new mesa changes, prepare a local branch based off of debian:

git remote add upstream git://
git remote update upstream
git checkout -b debian-stretch-19.2 cros/debian-stretch-19.2
git merge upstream/master
debchange -i
git add debian/changelog
git commit

Upload a sandbox branch to test with Docker and start a container. buildmesa_stretch:latest can be changed to buildmesa_stretch:setup if it is available.

git push cros HEAD:refs/sandbox/"${USER}"/debian-stretch-test
sudo docker run \
    --privileged \
    --volume=$PWD/artifacts:/artifacts \
    -it buildmesa_stretch:latest \

Within the Docker container, perform a build. $USER will need to be set manually within the container.

(cd mesa &&
 git fetch origin refs/sandbox/$USER/debian-stretch-test &&
 git checkout -B "${MESA_BRANCH}" FETCH_HEAD)

The Debian packages will be available in $PWD/artifacts/stretch to test.

Send merge commit to gerrit:

debchange -r
git add debian/changelog
git commit
git push cros upstream/master:refs/heads/temporary_upstream
repo upload . --cbr


The exported Docker image tarball must be copied to x20 under the path /x20/teams/chromeos-vm/docker/buildmesa_stretch.tar.xz:

cp buildmesa_stretch.tar.xz /google/data/rw/teams/chromeos-vm/docker

The owner of the tarball must be set to chromeos-vm-ci-read-write to allows Kokoro to have access to it.


The Chrome OS releases are often coming from ToT and do not match released or even branched mesa builds. Pre-releases will be numbered in a format such as 19.2.0~cros1-2 to signify a Chrome OS pre-release of 19.2.0. cros1 will be the second merge from upstream. -2 will be the third build of that upstream build. An actual release will look like 19.2.0-0~bpo0-1 and will be considered greater than the Chrome OS pre-release.
