Forwarding to mesa-dev where you may get more help.  There was talk of 
changing software rendering but I'm not sure what's changed.  What 
version of Mesa are you using?

Hi list,

I would like to compile mesa for a surfaceless system (server, software 
rendering, no GPU). This was possible earlier with the „surfaceless“ 

The recent versions do not allow surfaceless as a platform option 
anymore. The build info which is listed for building osmesa 
(https://docs.mesa3d.org/osmesa.html) does not list a platform, and in 
that case, wayland is required, which is not available on our server.

I could build osMesa with the x11 platform, but rendering does not work 
if there is no (remote) X connection (DISPLAY missing etc.).

What is the recommended approach now?
