Bringing up FOSS GPU Drivers on Freescale i.MX6 Systems - Lucas Stach, Pengutronix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For the past few years developers working with the Freescale i.MX6 had to work with vendor provided binary blob drivers if they wanted to take advantage of the Vivante GPUs built into those SoCs. As there is no way to fix problems or implement new interfaces with those drivers, they had to spent time working around issues or found themselves unable to realize their intended use-case.

The Etnaviv driver project aims to substitute those binary blobs with a FOSS driver stack. This new driver is based on proven and established components like the Linux kernel DRM framework, libdrm and the MESA OpenGL/CL/EGL implementation. Lucas will share the experiences he gathered and challenges he faced while working on all of those components, as well as providing the audience with some insights about the drivers design, current status and future work.

Lucas Stach

Open-Source Developer, Pengutronix
Lucas Stach is an open-source developer with a focus on low-level graphics hardware drivers. He was somewhat involved with the Nouveau and TegraDRM driver project as a hobbyist and is now working as a full-time kernel developer at Pengutronix with a focus on the Freescale i.MX line of SoCs. He is hacking drivers across all subsystems to provide upstream kernel support for various industrial embedded systems. Previous talks from Lucas about... Read More →
