Question regarding GPU on The i.MX 8M Nano EVK

Contributor I

Hi There,

I am playing with The i.MX 8M Nano EVK board product link with the pre-build Linux image version L5.10.35_2.0.0_MX8MN.

Currently, I have two questions:

1) The technical specification indicates that this board provides GPU features, could you please tell me if the GPU driver or library is already packed into the pre-build Linux image or not? If not, how can I install the GPU driver or library on this board? Because our application runs on the GPU and it's mandatory to us.

2) I tried to run some demo applications under this path but got the following errors, how can I cope with the issue?

root@imx8mnevk:/opt/imx-gpu-sdk/Vulkan/ComputeParticles# pwd
root@imx8mnevk:/opt/imx-gpu-sdk/Vulkan/ComputeParticles# ll
total 2324
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 9 2018 ./

root@imx8mnevk:/opt/imx-gpu-sdk/Vulkan/ComputeParticles# ./Vulkan.ComputeParticles_Wayland
ERROR: demo setup failed with: wl_display_connect Failure

Thanks a lot!

For detailed information on how to use the GPU features of all i.MX family
processor, including i.MX8MNano, under Linux BSP control, please refer to the i.MX

What kind of display do you have connected to your board?
