Confusion about Mali GPU and drivers
#1
Can someone shed some light on this subject for me?

I recently downloaded 2.0.8 onto a spare SD card and decided to start delving into the Mali GPU and drivers.  I decided to try and find out the driver and version currently being ran on the hardware.

Code:
sudo find / -name *.so | grep mali

Which returns:
Code:
/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libmali-midgard-r9p0-r0p0.so

After some googling I found some various resources:
https://developer.arm.com/products/softw...ard-kernel

And I found this:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KjO3kW8...BMcov/view

Which is apparently libmali-rk-midgard-r13p0-r0p0_1.5-4_armhf.deb which can be installed.  While more recent than the r9p0 listed above, it still seems out of date.

Am I missing something here?  Or possibly not understanding how the GPU drivers work?  I appreciate any input!

Hi icsy7867,

The latest Tinker OS (2.0.8) has been updated mali gpu library to r13p0
If you want to update mali gpu library in previous TinkerOS, you can download from google driver link that you find and using dpkg to install it.
