Thanks LiuXuegang

Do you know if there's a way to subscribe to announcements like this? Fixes like these are pretty important to those working with Android.

Hi,

I use the ICS on IMX6DL and patched the gpu p10 patch in https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-93987.

I encountered some randomly system hang & kernel panic problem.

So, I tried to upgrade the GPU driver to version p11 provided here.

However, the systemui cannot work when boot. (please reference the log below)

Is this patch only suitable with JB4.2?

Is it a known bug that GPU p10 driver is unstable on IMX6DL?

Hi,

I am able to download the GPU tar file.

But I unable to get the content of that tar file.

See the error,

$ tar -xvzf gpu-upgrade-to-p11.1.tar.gz

gpu-upgrade-to-p11.1/

gpu-upgrade-to-p11.1/13.4.1-p11.1-gpu-upgrade/

gpu-upgrade-to-p11.1/13.4.1-p11.1-gpu-upgrade/gpu-lib-13.4.1-p11.1.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated

tar: Unexpected EOF in archive

tar: Unexpected EOF in archive

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

What is this ???

How to get the content successfully ???

Thanks in Advance.

Best Regards,

J.P.Raja

Hello Raja,

Could double check, some AE and customer already update their GPU by the patch and binaries I provided, so should no such issue.

Hello Cliff,

Is this patch only suitable with JB4.2?

The patch is for ICS r13.4-ga and 13.4.1 release.

Is it a known bug that GPU p10 driver is unstable on IMX6DL?

No, it works for IMX6DL.

Your ICS is r13.4-ga release or 13.4.1 release, as I have provide the sepearte patch and updated GPU binaries for both r13.4-ga and 13.4.1 release, please make sure you select the correct patch and GPU binaries.
