Re: OpenGL ES on i.MX8


i.MX8 has GBM(DRM) support which is alternative for the lagacy framebuffer.

This is probably a question for NXP themselves but I thought I would try
the collective wisdom of the mailing list first.

When I build images for the i.MX6 I can build the OpenGL ES support to
use EGL and the Vivante driver to directly access the framebuffer
without having to include all of the overhead of X11 or Weston/Wayland.

Trying to find an equivalent configuration for the i.MX8m I am unable to
find an equivalent method.  The Vivante user space libraries don’t seem
to exist in a framebuffer or DRM form, instead they all seem to require
Wayland or X11.

Can someone more knowledgeable than I confirm whether that is the case
or whether I am missing something?
