HW GPU Acceleration for X11

Hello All,

 

I'm trying to enable vivante on userspace using the instructions from Installing Ubuntu Rootfs on NXP i.MX6 boards but I am stuck on the "Adding HW GPU acceleration for X11" section. I am using a custom board based on imx6 sabresd. Currently using i.MX6DL SoC. I am using kernel version 4.1.15 and using Ubuntu 16.04.2 filesystem with xubuntu desktop environment.

 

On the ""./fastbuild.sh .... " command, I've encountered the first issue - missing the "swaprep.h" but fixed it using this patch.  The second issue is the DRI_1.10.4/scr directory missing, this directory can be found on the previous versions of  xserver-xorg-video-imx-viv, so I downloaded a later version xserver-xorg-video-imx-viv-3.0.35-4.0.0 and tried to copy its DRI_1.10.4 directory to the xserver-xorg-video-imx-viv-5.0.11.p7.4 and build it but still no luck.

 

Found some similar issues on this but there is no definite answer.

 

BR,

Elton
