Missing or broken libOSMesa.so.8 library


The OSMesa library is needed by some games and CAD-like applications to perform off-screen rendering.


On CrossOver 17 and greater, the simplest solution to fix this issue is to run:
/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix missinglibosmesa8 missinglibosmesa8.amd64
Or add --show-all to see how CrossOver would fix it on your platform and others.

Alternatively you may try one of the commands below.

  • For 32-bit Windows applications
32-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu mesa
64-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu lib32-mesa
Debian : apt-get install libosmesa6:i386
32-bit Fedora (1) : yum install mesa-libOSMesa
64-bit Fedora (1) : yum install mesa-libOSMesa.i686 mesa-libOSMesa.x86_64
32-bit openSUSE >= 12.1 : zypper install libOSMesa8
64-bit openSUSE >= 12.1 : zypper install libOSMesa8-32bit
32-bit openSUSE >= 12.3 : zypper install libOSMesa9
64-bit openSUSE >= 12.3 : zypper install libOSMesa9-32bit
32-bit openSUSE >= 15.0 : zypper install libOSMesa8
64-bit openSUSE >= 15.0 : zypper install libOSMesa8-32bit
  • For 64-bit Windows applications
Arch Linux : pacman -Syu mesa
Debian : apt-get install libosmesa6:amd64
Fedora (1) : yum install mesa-libOSMesa.x86_64
openSUSE >= 12.1 : zypper install libOSMesa8
openSUSE >= 12.3 : zypper install libOSMesa9
openSUSE >= 15.0 : zypper install libOSMesa8
  • cxfix --show-all may have more up-to-date fixes.
  • The commands usually also apply to newer versions of the distributions above as well as derived distributions. So for instance a fix for Debian 7 may still be valid for the latest Debian Testing and is typically also applicable to Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Deepin and Pop! OS. Similarly a fix for Fedora likely also works on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, etc.
  • (1) This library is broken on Fedora 17 (see Red Hat issue 838228). The recommended fix is to upgrade to a newer Fedora release.
