What kind of functions would you want to be calling? My example months ago of getting an EGL sample in a window only needed a few extra calls compared to the original EGL code. Are you suggesting not having any extra calls at all?Hexxeh wrote:I want to run Chromium with Aura in some fashion on the Pi without using software rendering.
Yep, it's been working for many months. Debugging tiny issues can waste a weekend thoughubergeek72 wrote:I wonder if I could get a couple questions answered?
1. Is the driver working now?
If you have any doubt then I would say no, however if you're not running mission critical code then it's probably fine!a. reliable enough for day to day use
Yes. However in the process of writing this, I've discovered that X is rarely the bottleneck. Since I doubt people will believe me I've added a mode where X runs as absolutely fast as possible (the display is completely corrupt) but you can still make out how slow the actual applications are functioning through the corruption. It'll make sense when you try itb. acceleration is working
Sorry I must have given the wrong impression - that was the GNU assembler assembling the compositor. Normally assembling is a fast and low-memory event; it was more of a demonstration of how nuts I'd gone with the compositor's permutations!c. reduced memory footprint? (Last numbers I saw were 79 megs for the compositor.)
The most possible allocated to the ARM.2. Is there any specific memory split I need to use it?
I don't know yet. I am hoping some kind soul will make a Debian package for me!3. For those of us unaccustomed to grabbing stuff off of git and installing it into the guts of the OS, could there be a quick explanation on how that's done?
Awesome. Thanks for answering all my questions here.teh_orph wrote:With regards to my driver,
If I get lucky with my final corruption bug I'll be sending said packagers some code this weekend!
EDIT: oh and it'll require a kernel module that I've written. Not sure how that bit's gonna work...

So you gonna be done by Tuesday.. Well maybe I don't know, maybe if I stop sleeping. Well good. Because I just told a few million people it wouldn't be a problem. Oh.... O.K. Then.
