Allwinner Mali Information?
#3
There are three solutions for the Mali GPU (by ARM Holdings, not Allwinner).

One, write a traditional accelerated graphics driver for Xorg (Xorg is used by almost all Linux distributions nowdays).

Two, make an accelerated graphics driver for Wayland and/or Mir (Unity 8).

Three, make a somewhat accelerated graphics driver for Xorg using fbturbo (https://github.com/ssvb/xf86-video-fbturbo).


The third solution should be the easiest. I think the author of fbturbot (ssvb) is on this forum and can describe what work is missing for the Pine64.
It is good to have xf86-video-fbturbo while working on the other solutions.

The second solution requires less work than the first.
