I have a package that installs/compiles in its postinst script and tries to figure out on which system it is being installed:
But since I am not a weston/driver/user-space-graphics expert I am not sure if I run kmscube with this package installed, it is really using the SGX or if it is doing an emulation by CPU.
So if you know how to set up a working system (dependencies? other config files?) patches are welcome.
Ideally we (the openpvrsgx-degroup) can provide such universal (i.e. not board specific) Debian packages if we get contributions. And it increases chances by some µ% to get the kernel driver upstream.
