3D Graphics on mainline Linux

During the ELC Showcase event, BayLibre showed, among other demos, Quake III Arena running fully accelerated on an Odroid-C2 powered by the Amlogic S905 SoC.

This particular demo was running the lastest Linux 4.10 release with some in-development patches for HDMI Support, Audio and Mali acceleration that will certainly go into the next Linux releases.

The AmLogic S905 embeds an ARM Mali-450 MP3 GPU running at 750MHz.

The technical showcase poster is available as PDF Version.

BayLibre 3rd Anniversary

October 11 was the third anniversary of the founding of BayLibre and the team celebrated in style! As usual, this anniversary occurred around the same time as Embedded Linux Conference Europe. Both the US team and the France team travelled to Berlin for the conference, delivering several talks and presentations along the way, and then enjoyed a long weekend in Wrocław, Poland to finish the team celebration.

In addition to our anniversary celebration, BayLibre has created a short video highlighting our expertise, our strengths and the ways in which we deliver value to you, the customer.

ELC-E was a great event in 2016 and BayLibre looks forward to seeing you next year in 2017!

Kernel Recipes 2016

BayLibre was proud to be a sponsor of this this years Kernel Recipes conference in Paris.  Kernel Recipes is a small, technical conference focused on various topics related to the Linux Kernel.

kr-crowdI was a speaker again this year, and  gave a talk about the kernelci.org project.  The talk was a brief overview of the project, its history and ways to contribute.   Slides available here and video recordings are also available.

One of the fun parts of Kernel Recipes was all the speakers and some lucky audience members got caricatures of them drawn by artist Frank Tizzoni.  Here is one of me and one of the crowd, with a bunch more available on Kernel Recipes Twitter feed.
