N2+: Need GPU support in X

Post by techs1200 »

I recently received my Odroid N2+. I am working on a research project and I require GPU support.

I installed the mate desktop image (not the minimal image).

How can I run OpenGL apps inside of X and make use of the GPU? When I run glxgears it is clearly being rendered by software (CPU).

I have read that it is possible to have an opengl app use fbdev as its backend. Is there a code sample anywhere that demonstrates this?

Hmmm, maybe there *is* GPU support available. I am using glmark2 --fullscreen and I don't think a tiny CPU is able to run at the performance I am seeing.

Can anyone please clarify?
