Always end up reverting to software rendering and it sucks.

You are confused;  mali is only and always software rendering.  The mali is ONLY an in-memory accelerator for openGLES.  It does not support openGL, and it is NOT hardware rendering.  

And don't feel bad, you're not the only one with this persistent confusion. 


You sure marcus as it would seem strange that so much driver dev is going on with the Mali.
Prob should of said Rockchip DRM.



I am trying to get xorg to run & kodi-standalone  and should be able to get a different renderer.

Currently the VMware LLVPipe thingy renderer is totally useless as its so slow and looking like this Rock64 is destined for the bin.

Any device with Mali 400 should have a properly working OpenGL ES 2.0 acceleration if
it has Mali/UMP modules in the Linux kernel and libMali.so proprietary
binary blob installed in the system.

Soon as I install libMali I just seem to kill x but am unable to get a log why apart from brief segmentation fault errors.

libmali used to be closed source but not any more.

https://github.com/rockchip-linux/libdrm-rockchip but seems to of ground to a halt and confused as hell to be honest


Something somewhere isn't right and I am thinking it could be the kernel space gpu driver is not compatible with userspace(libmali).
I will install it again but thinking it will just kill things once more
libmali-rk-utgard-2th-r7p0 - The mali library for Rockchip RK3328 (32bit) is turning into a pain and only seems to be 32bit

Dunno but for some reason we are missing https://github.com/rockchip-linux/xserver so yeah there is no kernel modules for mail that correspond to the libs we have.
