- Is this driver also useful for accelerating 2D use (xorg acceleration) and
for playing videos (VPU) ? I currently use a utilite with an i.mx6q.Feb 18, 2014
- The 2D acceleration part (GC320) is almost fully reverse engineered and 'only' a xorg driver needs to be written. 2D stuff can also be done via XA state tracker. Regarding video playback I have no idea - sorry.Feb 19, 2014
- Thanks for the info. From my personal point of view an open source 3D driver is nice, but for daily work on the desktop a stable xorg driver is what is really needed. The closed source drivers from Freescale/Vivante work but have many room for improvement. Feb 19, 2014
- The most limiting factor is time.. all the work is done during spare time, but I hope 2014 will be the year of etnaviv.Feb 19, 2014
- Hi, may you sell me your work, we have worked for many days, and need to figure out the problem of the GPU driver GC2000 for Collage presentation. We are from Guatemala, if helps we are using a HummingBoard-i2eX (http://www.solid-run.com/products/hummingboard/linux-sbc-specifications/)
We noticed on the last comments you share a link where is all your work, We have already checked but we did not understand so well since we are a beginners.
What we need it is to install the GPU driver.

- There is no easy way to just install the driver. You need to compile etnaviv against your vendor kernel (correct GCABI). After that worked can run some basic demos (src/fb). If that works you can build mesa. The best way is to use https://github.com/etnaviv repos as my personal repos focus on drm based kernel driver and libdrm-etnaviv.Sep 15, 2014
