Hi all,

 

I have just started to develop on a IMX6Q based board.

Thanks to the great resources from freescale and third parties (especially yocto layers), I managed to setup a working BSP.

Yet I am now trying to switch from my current armel build to a armhf build and I fear that the closed libraries for GPU and VPU are not available for the armhf ABI.

Am I right or are these libraries already available and I was just unable to find them ?

If they are not available, is there any plan to deliver them in the future ?

If not that would be very disappointing for the IMX6 platform as the future of arm based Linux distributions for armv7 is obviously armhf.

Moreover armhf can lead to significant performance benefits compared to the softfp ABI (refer to https://wiki.linaro.org/OfficeofCTO/HardFloat/Benchmarks201205 for some figures)

 

I thank you by advance for any help,

Best regards

Stephan
