Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) triaged this task as Needs Information from User priority.

To be clear, the Mesa versions you are referring to are 17.1.8 and 17.2.0.

Does changing the window draw method under User Preferences > System help?

Might be the same as this bug:

We should probably switch to automatically using triple buffering for all graphics drivers now, especially in Blender 2.8.

Triple buffering is the solution, Blender works fine now with Mesa Thank you.
