IMX6Q Ubuntu OS not support OpenGL ?

Contributor II

OS: Ubuntu 11.10

Kernel: 3.0.35

issue content:

After I installed xbmc package and run it, the error message as follow:

"xbmc needs hardware accelerated opengl rendering. install an appropriate graphics driver"

How could I resolve this issue?

Should I port OpenGL to kernel?

Hi Public

yes such assumption may be correct, becasue gpu/vpu libraries may depend on

kernel and BSP distribution. I would suggest try below Freescale Ubuntu,

it has complete set of gpu/vpu libraries.

i.MX6Q|i.MX 6Quad Processors|Quad Core|Freescale

L3.0.35_4.1.0_UBUNTU_RFS_BSP : i.MX 6Quad, i.MX 6Dual, i.MX 6DualLite, i.MX 6Solo

and i.MX 6Sololite Linux File System for the Ubuntu Images.

Regarding Ubuntu 11.10 you can try to reuse libaries on Freescale link above or

post this on meta-fsl-arm mailing list, so that someone familiar with this distribution

could try to assist you.

Best regards
