    Phoronix: TURNIP Vulkan Driver Up And Running On Qualcomm's KGSL

    The TURNIP driver that is associated with the Freedreno driver effort for providing an open-source Vulkan driver for Qualcomm Adreno graphics hardware can now run atop Qualcomm's KGSL kernel driver...

    Nice, so it would be possible to get GPU acceleration without turning to libhybris on GNU/Linux. Not that I'm happy running downstream kernels, but porting all the drivers for a device to mainline takes a lot of time and effort. Having more options is always better. Hope it won't hurt freedreno kernel part development.

      I mean, ostensibly Mesa/Freedreno could be adapted to the same kernel driver interface, if the code isn't just so much crappier than Freedreno to begin with.

        and you can then get some opengl via zink

        nice and janky! :P
