SGX Video Acceleration

Installing drivers for OMAP 3

Activate the universe and multiverse repositories, then install the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get install libegl1-sgx-omap3 libgles1-sgx-omap3 libgles2-sgx-omap3

Before using it just be sure your user is also included at 'video' group.

Installing drivers for OMAP 4

If you're using the pre-installed image then just install the TI OMAP4 Extras and you'll have SGX working after your next reboot.

In case you want to install it by hand, just activate the tiomap-dev PPA https://launchpad.net/~tiomap-dev/+archive/release and make sure you install the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get install libegl1-sgx-omap4 libgles1-sgx-omap4 libgles2-sgx-omap4

Testing SGX with a DEMO

Grab the SDK Demo Package from http://neuvoo.org/neuvoo/distfiles/SGX-3.01.00.07-SDK.tar.gz

Then to run the demos just get into the X11 Binaries directory (e.g. OGLES/SDKPackage/Binaries/CommonX11/Demos/EvilSkull) and run the demo:

$ ./OGLESEvilSkull

Not supported by default, but with OMAP 3 backporting Maverick's driver should probably work fine.
