How to access the 3D Video Accelerator
The OMAP3 CPU contains a 3D Video accelerator (PowerVR-SGX530).
The system consists of 3 components:
- Kernel driver
- Runtime initialization
- Libraries (OpenGLES)
The kernel driver has been added to the sources of the hw-validation kernel:
You can check if it works by checking for
You need to locate and download the SDK from Texas Instruments:
Go to http://software-dl.ti.com/dsps/dsps_public_sw/sdo_sb/targetcontent/dvsdk/DVSDK_3_00/latest/index_FDS.html and locate OMAP35x_Graphics_SDK_setuplinux_3_01_00_06.bin through 'Graphics SDK v3.01.00.06 Link'
Or you can install the packages from Ubuntu (not tested):
You must load the 3.01.00.07 packages without dbg to be compatible to the kernel driver.
Run the pvrsrvinit tool.
There are libraries installed by the SDK as described above.
