For info, SDL is used in the backend. Previous Pi's used a non-standard mechanism of getting EGL onto a display dispmanx. Thanks for the info. I suspect some changes may be needed to SDL to take into account these changes.
Unfortunately, I just receive "failed to add service - already in use? Do you have mesa installed libgles2-mesa-dev? If what you are saying is that SDL requires libgles1-mesa-dev to build and libgles1-mesa-dev has been dropped by debian then that isn't a Pi issue and should be brought up with SDL. Nope using SDL2. I'll raise a ticket with them and post back here when I find out more.
Thanks for your help popcornmix. The vanilla renderer supports GLES 1. Nothing is currently in place for GLES 2. GLES1 is 16 years old. GLES2 is 12 years old.
Updating rendering to GLES2 might be the best solution. I was fearing that might be the case. Will try them this evening and let you know.
Huge turnaround - I've got Enemy Territory working. It's started up using an X11 window. Going to do some more tests and check I've not done anything perculiar. Getting 60 FPS on average! Yep can confirm it's running GLES 1. SDL was configured without any additional flags, so simply. That's good to hear. Thanks popcornmix I'll close this issue now. I have an issue with selecting the mesa driver on RPi4.
I ccompiled mesa with v3d driver enabled, loaded the fkms overlay and ccompiled kmscube. Running the latter fails with:. On earlier Pis the 3D side was also in "vc4". I enabled vc4 too made sure is enabled in kernel as well along with v3d but it still fails as it falls back to sw renderer:. Skip to content.Some of you may already know that Eric Anholt, the original developer of the open source VC4 and V3D OpenGL drivers used by Raspberry Pi, is no longer actively developing these drivers and a team from Igalia has stepped in to continue his work.
Learning a new GPU is a lot of work, but I think we have been making good progress and in this post we would like to share with the community some of our recent contributions to the driver and some of the plans we have for the future. But before we go into the technical details of what we have been up to, I would like to give some context about the GPU hardware and current driver status for Raspberry Pi 4, which is where we have been focusing our efforts.
The driver code for both GPU models is available in the Mesa upstream repository. There are no downstream repositories — all development happens directly upstream, which has a number of benefits for end users:. For those interested in the full list of changes, you can always go to the upstream Mesa repository and scan it for commits with Igalia authorship and the v3d tag.
First we have the shader compiler, where we implemented a bunch of optimizations that should be producing better faster code for many shader workloads.
The shader-db graph below shows how the shader compiler has evolved over the last few months.
It should be noted here that one of the benefits of working within the Mesa ecosystem is that we get a lot of shader optimization work done by other Mesa contributors, since some parts of the compiler stack are shared across multiple drivers. Evolution of the shader compiler June vs present. Another area where we have done significant work is transform feedback. Here, we fixed some relevant flushing bugs that could cause transform feedback results to not be visible to applications after rendering.
We also optimized the transform feedback process to better use the hardware for in-pipeline synchronization of transform feedback workloads without having to always resort to external job flushing, which should be better for performance. Finally, we also provided a better implementation for transform feedback primitive count queries that makes better use of the GPU the previous implementation handled all this on the CPU sidewhich is also correct at handling overflow of the transform feedback buffers there was no overflow handling previously.
This was responsible for this bugsince, as it turns out, the default LibreOffice theme in Raspbian was triggering a path in Glamor that relied on this feature to render the cursor. Although Raspbian has since been updated to use a different theme, we made sure to implement this feature and verify that the bug is now fixed for the original theme as well. Fixing Piglit and CTS test failures has been another focus of our work in these initial months, trying to get us closer to driver conformance.
You can check the graph below showcasing Piglit test results to have a quick view at how things have evolved over the last few months. This work includes a relevant bug fix for a rather annoying bug in the way the kernel driver was handling L2 cache invalidation that could lead to GPU hangs.
If you have observed any messages from the kernel warning about write violations maybe accompanied by GPU hangsthose should now be fixed in the kernel driver. This fix goes along with a user-space fix to go that should be merged soon in the upstream V3D driver.
Evolution of Piglit test results June vs present. A a curiosity, here is a picture of our own little continuous integration system that we use to run regression tests both regularly and before submitting code for review. The other big piece of work we have been tackling, and that we are very excited about, is OpenGL ES 3. We are currently hard at work squashing the last few bugs exposed by the Khronos Conformance Test Suite and we hope to be ready to merge this functionality in the next major Mesa release, so look forward to it!
It only takes a minute to sign up. I bought a touchscreen and installed the drivers for it, but now my hdmi doesn't work. I am currently running Raspbian on Raspberry Pi 4 model B. And I have a 3. I do not no what driver I have. I got it through my terminal from the github. They gave me a command for the terminal to enable the hdmi but it doesen't work. They said that once I installed the driver it would disable my hdmi, but they said you could enable it by executing this command: sudo.

VC4 and Mesa Drivers Update Plan Tue Jun 26, pm I have been working with a team of Kivy and Mesa driver engineers who have identified that Raspbian graphics need to be updated and a new version tested and released. Below is more information about this issue that was first reported on Kivy Github Oct 7,link below. I saw a VC4 version here on Github but latest changes are about two years old. This is a dead end unless the foundation themself Raspberry Pi marks this as important.
When I've been testing, I've tried using Gl4es and Mesa. Retired disgracefully Rather than negativity think outside the box! I compiled the full mesa3d demo examples and the same thing happens with those examples. Default window is not bad but increasing the size and smooth movements become jerky. I tried to update Raspbian to compile the mesa3d examples but it crashed when I was messing about with the newest driver sources from Eric's github. Using Eric's github I regard as bleeding edge, but eventually it does need testing.
I think the mesa3d demos are a good place to start for bench marking and bug detection and even learning OpenGL. Including them in standard Raspbian would help for 32bit debugging. Currently it is easier to do OpenGL and mesa3d in Gentoo Since I am no expert in drivers or compiling or 3D, I decided to wait and spend my time elsewhere.
I try to keep up with Eric's posts every few weeks or so, hoping one day I will understand them Reading between the lines, he is slowly killing bugs. There is the issue of Eric working on drivers ahead of current Raspbian too. I think Eric is now up to 4. So really, most user testing is not been done on the latest version anyway. I go to the Raspberry Linux github and see Raspbian has a branch at 4. Someone who doesn't know how may need a wiki with instructions As Eric says, just relying on Dom to test stuff is slow work.
Perhaps many hands make light work? I'm dancing on Rainbows. Raspberries are not Apples or Oranges.

I think Geometry shaders should come with Thanks for the informations. At least with Mesa Can you give some information for this?Install Ubuntu 19.10 On The Raspberry Pi 4 Full Ubuntu Desktop
The driver is hardcoding a setup where it only uses a single workgroup WG per supergroup SG. It is likely that this number can be increased for more parallelism and therefore better performance in some cases and it is something we should look into at some point. The mailing list for development discussion is the one for the Mesa project: mesa-dev at lists. You can also render to FBOs of course.
Or to rephrase my question; what would be the best way to create a context for only using compute shaders on the Raspberry Pi 4? Great work on this.

Next step: Vulkan? Can you quickly specify the Mesa version which should contain all needed changes? Very nice, fantastic work! Is there a mailing list for development discussion?
