glamor - Open-source X.org graphics common driver based on the GL library
||ROSA Main x86_64
The glamor module is an open-source 2D graphics common driver for the
X-Window System as implemented by X.org. It supports a variety of graphics
chipsets which have OpenGL/EGL/GBM supports.
It?s a GL-based rendering acceleration library for X server:
* it uses GL functions and shader to complete the 2D graphics operations;
* it uses normal texture to represent a drawable pixmap if possible;
* it calls GL functions to render to the texture directly.
It?s somehow hardware independently and could be a building block of any X
server?s DDX driver; a such driver could leverage glamor-egl package to create
an egl context without any native X system.
At the present the intel video driver use glamor as one of its acceleration
options: when you build it with --enable-glamor, then it will use it as its
rendering engine. The glamor package is also needed by the xf86-video-ati
driver to support newer video cards based on the Souhtern Island (SI)
This package can be used on every platform which has both OpenGL support and
the libgbm and libdrm libraries installed.
