    *blink*

    Umm, I get that you are trying to play devil's advocate here, but this is kind of nonsense. I know you are smarter than that. Userspace components end up having dependency on which libc...
  2. tbh, having not seen the vulkan spec yet, it is a...

    tbh, having not seen the vulkan spec yet, it is a bit premature to speculate on the path towards vulkan.. although I expect there is room to share a spirv->nir pass, but the compiler is not...
  3. I don't think you will really see SPIR->SPIR...

    I don't think you will really see SPIR->SPIR optimization passes (or TGSI->TGSI for that matter).. drivers will convert into NIR (or LLVM) which is easier to manipulate for optimization passes..

    fwiw, the bootloader is open source.. I suspect what you are thinking of is the rpm (resource power manager) firmware.

    Anyways, at the end of the day, who wins the 'most open' prize depends on...
  5. I'm not excusing android devices that ship with...

    where exactly is canonical failing here?
    are you aware that with android phones its the same issue. since mediatek is the one not giving out proper sources. the OS itself is set up properly, its...
  6. yeah, I have no doubt the source of the mess is...

    yeah, I have no doubt the source of the mess is the SoC vendor.. but really canonical should have a clue about this sort of thing and put their foot down before the phone shipped. I see no problem...

    yup, it's basically the chromium gpu process running on bare metal.



    basically in the CrOS architecture, since they have the dedicated gpu process which runs fullscreen, there was no need for...
  8. Earlier versions of spir were, and they may...

    Earlier versions of spir were, and they may possibly still use llvm for the glsl -> spir-v compiler that they mentioned (I haven't seen the src code for that yet, not sure if it exists anywhere...
  9. To some degree, different ir's with different...

    To some degree, different ir's with different purposes. Spir-v would get translated into nir or llvm anyways, and then potentially some different more driver specific form before finally popping out...
  10. different definition of state.. in this...

    different definition of state..

    in this context, "state" means "stateful API", ie. w/ opengl the driver is tracking state behind the scenes rather than application passing objects that describe...
  11. One way or another, I don't think supporting both...

    One way or another, I don't think supporting both a gallium pipe driver for opengl, and a vulkan driver, is a reasonable option. It's not like opengl is going away tomorrow. Unless someone steps up...
  12. I had high hopes for android devices with intel...

    I had high hopes for android devices with intel graphics, but somehow intel seems to be pushing their closed src driver on android. Take a look at the gl vendor strings:

  13. My only complaint about the firetv was the locked...

    My only complaint about the firetv was the locked bootloader.. but I think there is a current bootloader unlock. I'm using mine regularly as an xbmc/mediacenter. IIRC it has only 4 or 8GB of eMMC...
  14. indeed, in fact it runs nicely on rawhide, and on...

    indeed, in fact it runs nicely on rawhide, and on freedreno too (triggers some cursor issues in mdp4 display controller code (ie. apq8064 and older) which I still need to debug, but seems to run fine...
  15. Wayland should allow for similar efficiencies...

    Wayland should allow for similar efficiencies (ie. using hw overlays or composition engines to bypass gpu)..

    How quickly the window mgrs which have their roots in x11/desktop start taking...
  16. well, blob on android is approaching 60fps.. but...

    well, blob on android is approaching 60fps.. but otoh it doesn't actually render correctly:

    Probably you can't really infer much from that... android has a more...
  17. hmm, it does seem like it is capped, or maybe...

    hmm, it does seem like it is capped, or maybe bottleneck in the js/browser stuff somehow.. it at least doesn't react to window size quite as much as I would expect. I was enabling...

    afiau they have some parts available in small quantities.. apq8064 is still somewhat more high end than what is in those low cost boards you linked to, but it is popping up in a number of places...

    Adreno 405 should be pretty similar to 420, which is already supported. In userspace it is probably just a matter of a oneline patch to add a "case 405:" in a switch statement. And some small patch...

    one correction: newer tegras use nouveau for gpu (rendernode), but still use tegra-drm for display/kms..
