Thread: When is llvmpipe going to replace the mesa software rasterzier in openSUSE?

  1. #1

    Default When is llvmpipe going to replace the mesa software rasterzier in openSUSE?

    llvmpipe

    The Gallium llvmpipe driver is a software rasterizer that uses LLVM to do runtime code generation. Shaders, point/line/triangle rasterization and vertex processing are implemented with LLVM IR which is translated to x86 or x86-64 machine code. Also, the driver is multithreaded to take advantage of multiple CPU cores (up to 8 at this time). It's the fastest software rasterizer for Mesa.
    This may be useful as it supports GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap

    There was a brief discussion on the mailing list here: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-f.../msg00618.html

    What do you guys think?

    Here is how to build:
    DRI Wiki - BuildingWithLLVM

    First build llvm from svn with clang support:
    Next build mesa with llvm support:

    Mesa-7.9 [still unreleased as of 17-09-2010, but already branched from master] has configure switch for autoconf-based build system:
    Code:
    --enable-gallium-llvm

    Got it to build and sent it to X11Org / Mesa

    Request is here:
    https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/90506

    After it gets accepted it needs testing. Here:
