Hi all,

We are working on Freescale i.MX 6 board, trying to port TIZEN image to it. We are facing issues related to xorg server.

The current xorg version in tizen is Xorg-13.0, whereas I learnt that xorg-11.0 is the latest version that is available for i.MX6. ☹!!

Hence, I rolled back to xorg version 10.0 which I found in the Ubuntu BSP provided by freescale.

Xorg versions for various drivers are as follows:

(II) Module ABI versions:

[    59.257]            X.Org ANSI C Emulation: 0.4

[    59.257]            X.Org Video Driver: 10.0

[    59.257]            X.Org XInput driver : 12.3

[    59.257]            X.Org Server Extension : 5.0

I tried running xserver using startx, and I am faced with following  error:

[    59.513] drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card15

[    59.514] drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)

[    59.514] drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)

[    59.514] drmOpenDevice: Open failed

[    59.514] drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -19

[    59.514] (EE) AIGLX error: drmOpenOnce failed (Operation not permitted)

[    59.514] (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering

[    59.514] (II) AIGLX: Trying DRI driver /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/dri/

[    59.646] (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized swrast

[    59.646] (II) GLX: Initialized DRISWRAST GL provider for screen 0

[    59.649]

Fatal server error:

[    59.649] Driver failed PrepareAccess on a pinned pixmap.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Further,i.MX6 has a vivante GPU, which uses file as a driver. Is GPU initialization causing  an error??

I am attaching detailed logs for reference.

Thanking in advance,
