Use Android drivers with libhybris on Cubieboard

Postby maribu » Fri Aug 02, 2013 8:10 pm

Hi, there!

Has anyone tried using Android driver under Arch Linux with libhybris right now? I've seen this site http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/04/21/ ... ubieboard/ (make sure to have a look at the amazing video!) and I would like to reproduce this on Arch Linux.

I (guess that I) have successfully compiled android for the Cubieboard following the instructions on the cnx website. I uploaded the resulting /system folder and the headers to save you days of downloading and hours of compiling. (The resulting folder (with output) uses about 32GiB, the source code only used I think about 10GiB.)

I put these three PKGBUILDs together, with which you can successfully compile libhybris. But the tests fail.

Anyone an idea?

Regards,
Maribu

Yeah!

With the help of the fantastic people on https://github.com/libhybris/libhybris I got it working :-)

These steps are needed to get it working:

    - untar the attached archive and untar the containing *.src.tar.gz files
    - run makepkg for android-headers and android-system packages
    - install both packages
    - run makepkg for libhybris package and install it
    - add yourself to the hybris group (gpasswd -a myusername hybris
    - reboot

After this run "/opt/hybris/bin/test_glesv2" and enjoy :-)

Regards,
maribu

Also got this working: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6xb7QY_ ... e=youtu.be

After I installed these packages from AUR, it worked out of the box:
    - qt5-base-git
    - qt5-xmlpatterns-git
    - qt5-jsbackend-git
    - qt5-declarative-git
    - qt5-wayland-git
    - qt5-graphicaleffects-git

Download Cinematic Experience from http://quitcoding.com/download/Qt5_Cine ... pi_1.0.tgz

Use this command to run it:
Code: Select all
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/hybris/lib QT_QPA_EGLFS_DEPTH=24 qmlscene -platform eglfs Qt5_CinematicExperience.qml

maribu

PS: On http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/04/21/ ... ubieboard/ the say you need to comment out the PathAnimation part of content/Mainview.qml to get it working. This is true for mer, but on Arch Linux it works without commenting it out. You should keep the PathAnimation part, it makes the golden glowing ball moving around ;-)

Nicely done.We'll have to see about being this into a nice clean stack?

Sorry, I don't understand that. I'm not a native speaker and have sometimes trouble to understand the English language. Could you write it again in other words?

so I've done everything excellently explained here and see all the Qt demos ... now, what is this all about?

  1. xorg/X11 seems to be unable to enjoy these libraries power
  2. no web browser enable HW acceleration after having these libraries in
  3. neither I can play 1080p quality video @ at least 30 fps

Am I missing something or am I doing everything wrong?

Thanks

Hi, WebReflection!

xorg/X11 seems to be unable to enjoy these libraries power


This is correct.

no web browser enable HW acceleration after having these libraries in


In theory you can use this drivers to get acceleration working with your browser. For example the enlightenment foundation librarys allow rendering on wayland using egl (and shm). You could start with the efl-git package in AUR and modify the ./configure parameters to add egl support. The browser "eve" (package eve-svn in AUR, does currently not compile against the git version of efl) uses the efl toolkit. Sadly I cannot run weston using the drm backend. I guess the Raspberry Pi backend would be a good start to write a "egl"-backend. I've no idea if it is possible to render in egl in wayland when you use the fbdev backend.

neither I can play 1080p quality video @ at least 30 fps


This is because my version of libhybris does not include CedarX. Have a look here http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarX/libve#Using_libhybris_wrapped_Android_libraries. I think you can reuse my system image. But I'm not 100% sure.

are you saying the missing part in order to have CedarX is just this within the android-system PKGBUILD ?

Code: Select all
package() {
  cd "${srcdir}"
  cp system "${pkgdir}/" -R
  cd /system/lib
  wget https://github.com/allwinner-dev-team/android_external_cedarx/raw/ef36cd760e9d76a2/CedarAndroidLib/LIB_JB_F23/libcedarv_adapter.so
  wget https://github.com/allwinner-dev-team/android_external_cedarx/raw/ef36cd760e9d76a2/CedarAndroidLib/LIB_JB_F23/libcedarv_base.so
  wget https://github.com/allwinner-dev-team/android_external_cedarx/raw/ef36cd760e9d76a2/CedarAndroidLib/LIB_JB_F23/libcedarxosal.so
  wget https://github.com/allwinner-dev-team/android_external_cedarx/raw/ef36cd760e9d76a2/CedarAndroidLib/LIB_JB_F23/libve.so
}


Thanks thought, I appreciate your hints ... it's just so annoying all I'd like to have is a browser with modern technologies supported. Everything seems to be there but completely disassembled ... have you ever had luck building qt5 from the scratch, forcing Open GL ES2.0 and using both Mali driver and these ? if not ... I'm re-trying again with latest hints :-)

If yes, please share how the hack you did that, I always get stuck when it comes to QtWebkit part ... !
