Etnaviv: Getting there...

The etnaviv mesa driver is coming along nicely… (thanks to zear for the glquake screenshots)







GLES 1/2 support is getting there, all the crash bugs (that I know of) have been fixed, there is still some rendering corruption here and there, but most of the work left is fixing specific bugs and of course optimization. Please report specific bugs in the bug tracker.

Building the driver

In the GCW Zero buildroot you can build the driver by setting BR2_PACKAGE_ETNA_VIV=y, BR2_PACKAGE_ETNA_VIV_ABIV2=y and BR2_PACKAGE_MESA3D_ETNA_VIV=y. Make sure that you use a kernel branch with the Vivante V2 driver enabled (newest is jz-3.10-graphics-v2-fixes).

Getting everything built on other platforms (such as Cubox) can be a bit tricky at the moment. If you have trouble building the driver for your platform you can contact me.
