Much progress has been made on FOSS graphics for ARM/SoC based devices in the last few years. Before you could only choose between no graphics or blob graphics on these devices, if you even had that choice! Freedreno has been leading the charge with an upstream gallium and kernel drm/kms driver. The result is the software you have come to take for granted on x86 now also works on ARM based devices (composited DE's like gnome-shell, wayland, games, webgl, and so on). Yet, there is much left to do. In this presentation, we will go into more detail about freedreno and discuss how the community can get involved: how to use, how to debug, and the remaining tasks for gl3/gles3 support. We will also demonstrate the current capabilities of the freedreno drivers on several Snapdragon based boards, such as the Inforce 6410 and 6540.
