Code of Conduct

As part of Kazan being hosted by Debian, it is important to follow the Debian Code of Conduct when participating in Kazan's development.



branch is the new Rust version. The previous C++ version is in the

Building using Docker

  • Clone Git repo: git clone --recursive https://salsa.debian.org/Kazan-team/kazan.git

  • Build: cd kazan docker build -t kazan-cts . If the build fails due to Out-of-Memory, reduce the number of processes run simultaneously by passing

    to only use the specified CPUs: # only use CPUs 0, 1, and 2 docker build --cpuset-cpus=0,1,2 -t kazan-cts .

Building on Ubuntu 18.04

  • Install Rust via rustup: curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh You need to restart your shell after installing Rust so

    gets set correctly.
  • Install required packages: sudo apt-get install cmake ninja-build libgl1-mesa-dev libxcb-shm0 libclang-dev clang build-essential git

  • Clone Git repo: git clone --recursive https://salsa.debian.org/Kazan-team/kazan.git

  • Build using Cargo: cd kazan cargo build -vv Building using

    is recommended because the build process builds LLVM and it doesn't show LLVM's build progress unless using
  • Run unit tests: cargo test

  • Run a program using the built driver: ./run.sh [ ...] For example, to run

    : ./run.sh vulkaninfo

  • Run the Vulkan Conformance Test Suite (CTS):

    • Build and run the CTS: ./run-cts.sh
    • Only build the CTS: ./run-cts.sh --update-only
    • Run the CTS without trying to rebuild: ./run-cts.sh --no-update The CTS is known to fail the
      test due to a bug in the
      that comes packaged in Ubuntu 18.04. That test should pass when using the
      from the Vulkan SDK.
