Onboard GPU Driver?

Hello! Excuse my ignorance, I am rather new here. The VC4 GPU is not currently supported, but apparently the “Raspberry Pi 2” is supported. Is there an open-source GPU driver for the Raspberry Pi 2? What would it take to make it work on the RPi 3?

@SuperJMN, can you help?

I’m afraid I can’t help for now.

It’s planned to contact other hardware vendors for drivers like onboard Wi-Fi, BT and GPU to see if they can help. I’m not sure, but I think @Mario wrote to Qualcomm some months ago.

Anyways, I think it’s a good moment to try again.

I’m currently working on WOA Deployer for Raspberry Pi (quite busy with daily job and I’ve got a meetup in Dublin in 2 weeks…) and I can’t mail them for now.

Early next month, I think I will be less busy, so I can try to do it.

Raspberry Pi does not use anything from Qualcomm.

The graphics driver sample for the VideoCore IV V3D unit seems to be discontinued and it has very limited functionality.
I don’t think it will improve the performance in any way…

I found code on GitHub that could maybe be used? I think it might be better to just code it again, but it also has some technical documentation.

https://github.com/christinaa/rpi-open-firmware this could work as a “base”.

Sorry, I always confuse Broadcom with Qualcomm :slight_smile:

Sorry, José! I was just trying to ask if you knew the answer. @Mario knew and posted, so all is good. Sorry for being unclear.
