Hi,

 

I am cross compiling Qt with Buildroot and GCC Linaro for a carrier board based on IMX6Q.

 

I would like to use eglfs platform plugin but i am confused about the list of associated backends available.

 

QPA backends:
   DirectFB ............................... no
   EGLFS
.................................. yes
   EGLFS details
:
    EGLFS
OpenWFD ........................ no 
    EGLFS i
.Mx6 .......................... no
    EGLFS i
.Mx6 Wayland .................. no
   EGLFS RCAR
........................... no
    EGLFS
EGLDevice ...................... yes 
    EGLFS GBM
............................ yes
    EGLFS
Mali ........................... no 
    EGLFS
Raspberry Pi ................... no 
    EGL on X11
........................... no 
   
LinuxFB ................................ no 
    VNC
.................................... yes
   
Mir client ............................. no

I guess that the EGLFS i.Mx6 is best suited and efficient for IMX6Q - but is it true ? - and especially how is it possible to activate this option instead of the current EGLDevice or GBM ?

 

I have configured Qt with -device linux-imx6-g++ ( using buildroot Custom configuration options) but it does not change anything and i don't see any other options so far.

 

Thanks for any help.
