    you are on 21.3.0... 21.1.5~kisak1~g is the newest there.
    Yes it may be from the same web page but further down it talks about later than the one you suggested:

    ppa is

    oibaf/graphics-drivers

    Which is a different source?

    Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    As nothing has worked for mesa so far I thought I would try the oibaf/drivers but I cannot understand:

    snip>
    Note: Using ppa-purge with Ubuntu derivatives needs to include -d <based_on_name> to work safely. For example, Linux Mint 20 is based on Ubuntu Focal, so that would make it:
    sudo ppa-purge -d focal ppa:kisak/turtle
    snip>

    Does that mean the -d is based on focal and that for me I need another letter -x for 21.04? 21.04 is based on Hirsute Hippo so is my command: sudo ppa-purge -x hirsute ppa:kisak/turtle and if so where would I find the letter to substitute for x?

    My ppas look a mess now and it is hard to find help I can trust.

    Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    since you referred to an It's FOSS article previously, here's there tutorial on that: https://itsfoss.com/ppa-purge/

    And yes, there is a mess there:
    - In Lines 3 thru 5- you have Kisak's Mesa Stable repo added.
    - In Lines 6 thru 8 you have his Fresh PPA added.

    There are packages in both PPA's with the same names, so there IS a conflict there. Only one of those PPA's should be there at a time... One of them needs to be purged to resolve that conflict... (I don't believe I'm saying this, but...) Since you are looking for the newest version, you are probably wanting to purge the Stable PPA.
    Code:
    sudo apt install ppa-purge
    sudo ppa-purge ppa:kisak/turtle
    Then do an upgrade on mesa
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install --reinstall mesa

    Does that mean the -d is based on focal
    No, it means distro or distribution.
    Releases like mint may need it as they have their own repositories and so when ppa-purge tries to revert the packages to the originally installed versions it needs to do so for the correct repo.

    Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    I am not sure if this error message is off topic so if so please advise and I can deal with it elsewhere.

    It is seen after choosing Ubuntu in the grub menu.

    Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    And "No Man's Land" still doesn't want to work? My goodness, you are on the latest Kernel 5.14 and Mesa 4.6. Your UHD graphics works with everything else. That Kernel and that Mesa Driver has the latest updates to Vulcan Graphics... for Vulcan Ray Tracing...

    It's well time to turn it in as a bug report to Steam and the publisher, CDV Software.

    The errors you are getting are a byproduct of using a kernel that is well ahead of the other software in the OS. It seems to boot and work, but something. that were built with earlier kernels are confused, right? If you bring up the Grub menu and boot from another Kernel, you don't have those error messages do you. Right?

    Right now, it documented here what you did, so you have a checkpoint where you can roll back to. By purging the Mesa PPA, and uninstalling the very new Ker, then you will be back to normal.

    LOL. You have done more than other's to try to make your's work. Correctly and methodically. About the only other thing I can think of, would be to install the Phoronix Test Suite... There is a test in that Benchmark Suite for Vulcan Ray Tracing that would verify that "that" works on your machine, which would point all that back, specifically on something wrong with the game itself... But I don't know. See... I have high end NVidia, and that test works with mine on Kernel 5.8... But I'm using the NVidia proprietary drivers.

    Are you willing to assist with Phoronix Test Suite? I hate leaving stones unturned, is it worth it?.Btw. Its No Man's Sky.

    I do have the same error if I use an earlier kernel. The only time I didn't have an error was when I last used Ubuntu 20.04 which was to slow to play but no errors.

    Roll back to what point? 20.04? Because I think I may have to reinstall 20.04 if/when I get a dedicated GPU and I still can't a) afford and b) not sure which would be best AMD or Nvidia.

    You mentioned a bug report to Steam but I tried but gave up:

    New accounts are limited from using all of Steam's community features. You'll have access to all of Steam's features once you've spent $5.00 USD in the Steam store or added $5.00 USD to your Steam Wallet. Some of the features that you won't be able to access are: ....................

    When you first spend $5 on your account you will have to wait at least 1-2 day.
    And do the Steam Quests(Badge) to get the "Steam Community" badge therefore, you also get two levels!

    I will understand if you think we should just say we had a bliddy good try and it's time to stop and just continue paying for streaming for the time being.

    Edit: Did you look at the link to the errors I get when starting xubuntu? Do they have any bearing?

    I have installed Phoronix Test Suite, it looks interesting but I am struggling lol.
