Description

Over the last few years the quality of Mesa's drivers has increased exponentially, to the point where many prefer the use of the open source driver to their proprietary counterparts. Open source drivers can have better compatibility, less bugs, and more frequent updates to resolve issues. Because of this uptick in quality, you may want to run the open source drivers on other operating systems such as Android.

In this talk we will explore the work that was required to get Freedreno running on Android. This will include setting up the development environment, loading the driver on real hardware, development tips & tricks, running tests, setup of debugging environment, issues encountered during the porting process, and lastly we will explore some areas of Mesa that could be updated to simplify porting to other operating systems. This talk should provide a guide for anyone looking to get their Mesa driver running on Android.
