mesa update/graphics card errors
Hello :-)

Have been running Neptune for a few months, and it's wonderful. PC is running better after the latest updates, which is great, but unfortunately there's a graphics driver error.

Neptune version number: neptune 5, kernel 4.17 (graphics issues with 4.18), all updates done.

Games either black screen or unable to initialize OpenGL (error code CS-1842), or say need to update graphics drivers and InitializeEngineGraphics failed.

Had been difficult to update mesa ... realised it hadn't gone through, so I checked in Muon and tried to manually update those marked 'upgradeable' ... various errors/crashes, but eventually managed to install it, with everything running really well, except for this graphics issue. I realise now that I shouldn't have persisted in trying to do these upgrades.

I don't know how to revert or if it's safe to uninstall, or what to uninstall, so I just did a reboot, updated wine-staging, and tried a fresh game install, but same error. Not sure what to do.
