Bug Description

Mesa is now built with meson, and it turns out that meson < 0.47.0 (commit 7c4736d27f4c5d7 to be exact) doesn't handle command line options properly which means that -Db_ndebug=true didn't have any effect when mesa is built on bionic. This means that some asserts are enabled, and at least nouveau is affected.

[Test case]
chech the build log that -DNDEBUG is passed

[Regression potential]
none really, it just adds a build flag which should've been there

Hello Timo, or anyone else affected,

Accepted mesa into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.
