While going through my RSS feeds this landed in my lap

MALI Driver

the TL;DR is that someone is working on mali GPU drivers for linux

It would appears that there is ongoing work (Post-lima) to have OSS graphics drivers. this is for the T860 and not the T880 as is in the x25/X27 however the difference between these chips is mainly the amount of cores and should just be a simple a matter of testing and perhaps updating a constant or two

Based on the authors blog posts work seems to be happening at a quick pace and so i am hopeful there should be something usable in the coming months

cant wait till there is something i can run on my chromebooks and phone

Things are moving at an awesome pace!


So I haven't checked out the new driver yet but maybe, just maybe, we can stop using hwcomposer in the very near future...?
