A10: Compiling newer mali kernel (!) driver, r3p1???
July 09, 2013 01:23PM
Hi guys,

just a quick question.

It seems that Allwinner stayed with the r3p0 mali kernel drivers for a long time now already. No change there for months, while arm already published r3p2-01rel2.

Now, for some experimenting I wanted to upgrade the drivers, but can't get them to compile.

I did not try native compiling on the hackberry, my A10 device, yet. But I can say that my cross-compiling attempts on both Debian unstable and Ubuntu 13.04 failed miserably. I had and at the moment have no time to debug in detail. Maybe in a month or so.

My question is:
Anyone tried compiling anything newer than r3p0 yet? Peferrably successfully with Kernel sunxi-3.4.
If so, what has to be done exactly, to make it compile without problems?

I know that the arch- entry for ca8-virtex... has to be copied and the platform entries, too. But that didn't seem to be enough. I was clearly missing something else and my googling didn't bring up the one hint to solve this.

Would greatly appreciate some hints, that woud make it easier.

Thanks in advance!
