Official Mirror:
The glamor module is an open-source 2D graphics common driver for the X-Window System as implemented by 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) chip-sets. This package can be used on every platform which has both OpenGL support and the libgbm and libdrm libraries installed.
