I am seeing the same issue and it was also reported on the mail list. You may change this to "Affects some people" at the least. I suspect "Many" is correct.

Comment 4 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-14 08:42:25 UTC
I can confirm this issue. I'm getting the same error in poudriere.

Looks like this is fallout from r552109, which updated mesa ports to 20.2.0. If that's the case it will affect all OS versions using the latest ports tree branch

I'm adding manu@ to the CC list so he is informed.

Comment 6 Emmanuel Vadot freebsd_committer 2020-10-14 09:45:41 UTC
GL_GLEXT_VERSION was already defined in mesa-19 (it's mandatory to have it since it's defined by the Khronos implementation).
I don't know why virtualbox have it's own copy of the GL header (and why they differs)
Comment 7 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-14 11:41:58 UTC
(In reply to Emmanuel Vadot from comment #6)
I don't understand why they have a (bad) cosy of GL source code embedded in virtualbox.

One idea (which I could try doing later) is looking at virtualbox source code history to get a clue why they have that.

One quick solution could be to add an option to the port to disable GL support in virtualbox, but not a very good one.

One more thing to try could be to simply replace the glext.h file in virtualbox with a newer one from mesa-libs.
Comment 8 rozhuk.im 2020-10-14 17:05:22 UTC
Problem in include order:

/usr/local/include - must be after /src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/include.

/usr/local/include is set via TEMPLATE_VBOXR3EXE_INCS.
VBOX_GRAPHICS_INCS = $(PATH_ROOT)/include/VBox/Graphics
VBOX_PATH_CROGL_INCLUDE     = $(PATH_ROOT)/src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/include

This hack help with OpenGL, but build fail later.
	    -e 's|/GuestHost/OpenGL/include|/GuestHost/OpenGL/include /usr/local/include|' \
	    -e 's|$$(VBOX_GRAPHICS_INCS)|$$(VBOX_GRAPHICS_INCS) /usr/local/include|' \

I do not understand kBuild template mess, at least today.
Comment 9 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-14 18:14:57 UTC
(In reply to rozhuk.im from comment #8)

Virtualbox included glext.h file has a comment:

/* Header file version number, required by OpenGL ABI for Linux */
/* glext.h last updated 2008/08/10 */
/* Current version at http://www.opengl.org/registry/ */

SO I tought I could follow that link and ended up here:


I know nothing about OpenGL development, but it looks like they are providing a "generic" include file to be embedded in projects.

I'm now testing with a glext.h file downloaded from there.

Willl followup here with results once poudriere is done rebuilding things.
Comment 10 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-14 20:06:47 UTC
(In reply to Guido Falsi from comment #9)

Using the glext.h file from https://www.khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php#headers causes a failure with slightly different errors but anyway is not working.
Comment 11 rozhuk.im 2020-10-14 22:32:23 UTC

This works too and looks like correct change of includes order by template system:

Patch to deal with updated mesa

This patch applies and configures cleanly. Due to a hardware issue (fan) with my system, I can't do a  build at this time. I can only say that it gets much further than it used to. Hopefully, others will report success/failure.
Comment 15 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-15 17:31:20 UTC

I'm going to test this in poudriere and report back. It could take some time though, since my build machine is already busy in another bog build.

Comment 17 rkoberman 2020-10-15 19:03:34 UTC
Two patches that do the same things in different ways. The port is a mix of patches to the sources and sed -i fixes. I like the one rozhuk.im submitted that patches the patch file better than mine, but I guess it's up to the maintainer to pick whichever she/he prefers.

> I can only say that it gets much further than it used to.

No, it do not enough :)
Regexp do 4 replaces in src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL/Makefile.kmk, same things affected after template changes.
But template changes also affects src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk.

src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxSharedCrOpenGL_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTDLL

src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLhostcrutil_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLhostcrpacker_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLhostspuload_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLhostcrstate_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLhosterrorspu_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLcrserverlib_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLcrunpacker_TEMPLATE       = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB
src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL/Makefile.kmk:VBoxOGLrenderspu_TEMPLATE = VBOXCROGLR3HOSTLIB

Probably src/VBox/GuestHost/OpenGL/Makefile.kmk used in guest addons or other parts but not used for this port.

New revision: 552571
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/552571

  Fix emulators/virtualbox-ose build after r552109.

  VirtualBox embeds an outdated version of glext.h, causing it to
  fail to build due to symbols being redefined incorrectly.

  Import patch which forces virtualbox to append it's own include
  paths, thus not "obscuring" the system provided OpenGL include file.

Before committing the patch from this bug I did test emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions and it built fine.

Could you attach a full log of the failing build?

Please note that emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions usses the ssame patches from emulators/virtualbox-ose, so the patch I committed there affect additions too.

Comment 26 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-21 11:12:45 UTC
(In reply to Martin Birgmeier from comment #25)

The error is not the same, and while it is still is in the OpenGL area is not the same.

I have tried rebuilding in poudriere and could not reproduce this. I'd suggest you try force reinstalling mesa ports. This is just a guess, it could be something else installed on the system interfering.

I'm trying to understand, maybe this is a local issue or maybe a rare case that requires addressing.

BTW building things on live systems like portmaster does is prone to errors caused by specific conditions in the building machine. The port could be working fine like it does in poudriere and the cause some "misalignment" in the local machine.

BTW you're using the latest ports tree, correct?
Comment 27 Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2020-10-21 11:13:52 UTC
(In reply to Guido Falsi from comment #26)
Sorry, not only mesa ports but also the virtualbox-ose port itself.
Comment 28 rozhuk.im 2020-10-21 15:58:56 UTC
(In reply to Martin Birgmeier from comment #25)

There is several glxext.h files:

And no attempt to include during to build src/VBox/Additions/common/crOpenGL/glx.c.

Probably because:
	@${ECHO_CMD} 'VBOX_USE_SYSTEM_GL_HEADERS = 1' >> ${WRKSRC}/LocalConfig.kmk
Removing this does not help, it try to build libs that system already have -fail in onother place.
This is dead end: manipulations with system headers / include order will not help.

I look into src/VBox/Additions/common/crOpenGL/dri_glx.h and found:
 * Set this to 1 if you want to build stub functions for the
 * GL_SGIX_pbuffer and GLX_SGIX_fbconfig extensions.
 * This used to be disabled, due to "messy compilation issues",
 * according to the earlier comment; but they're needed just
 * to resolve symbols for OpenInventor applications, and I
 * haven't found any reference to exactly what the "messy compilation
 * issues" are, so I'm re-enabling the code by default.
#define GLX_EXTRAS 1

I remove it using:
	    -e 's|#define GLX_EXTRAS 1||g' \
	    ${WRKSRC}/src/VBox/Additions/common/crOpenGL/dri_glx.h \

And build OK.

I did not check that it work - I do not use OpenGL in guests.
It allow build virtualbox-ose-additions with OpenGL without errors.

Hope some one test it and report here.

Comment 32 Martin Birgmeier 2020-10-21 16:38:15 UTC
Hi Guido,

Yes, my ports tree is at latest.

Also, it is clear that using portmaster means that there can be interference with other ports.

One question: I patched virtualbox-ose{,-additions} to allow simultaneous installation of both (commented out the conflict lines) because on the build VM I am building for both vbox servers as well as clients. This has always been working so far. Could it be the reason for this new breakage?

virtualbox-ose-additions patch

New patch to try a fix for additions which will work at runtime.

This patch aligns the GL includes embedded in virtualbox with libraries installed by the mesa ports.

Some functions had their prototypes modified. Especially glXQueryGLXPbufferSGIX had it's return type changed from int to void. It's not problematic since the one included in virtualbox-ose is a stub always returning "0" after dumping an error message.
