Hi Conrad,

Thank you for being this active!

I am also interested in using this and keeping it in Gentoo, so let's
team up!

That sounds like an awful device to run Gentoo on.


Compiling on a 256 MB Raspberry Pi 1 Model B is of course no joy. Before mine 
broke, I plugged the SD card into another, faster ARM computer, chrooted in 
and emerged updates. That was ok.



I'd like to require libglvnd for all libGL providers and get rid of
app-eselect/eselect-opengl. What do you suggest we do about
raspberrypi-userland?


I suggest to drop eselect-opengl and its dependency in raspberrypi-userland. 
raspberrypi-userland installs into /opt anyway so should not conflict with 
anything else. And those people who really need acceleration on 256 MB 
devices will have to set the proper environment variables.



Best regards,
Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn

I'd like to require libglvnd for all libGL providers and get rid of
app-eselect/eselect-opengl. What do you suggest we do about
raspberrypi-userland?

I'm hoping to enable libglvnd support in media-libs/mesa and
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers soon, and this is the only other package in
Gentoo that uses app-eselect/eselect-opengl.

Do we care to keep this now that Mesa's vc4 driver is in good shape?


There are uses for raspberrypi-userland which the vc4 driver (last I checked 
at least) does not cover very well.


The most important one is support for the 256 MB RAM devices (original RPi 
Model B), which works fine on raspberrypi-userland. vc4 still has issues if 
less than 256 MB RAM are allocated to the GPU.

Do you know something about media-libs/raspberrypi-userland as well?
I'm hoping to enable libglvnd support in media-libs/mesa and
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers soon, and this is the only other package in
Gentoo that uses app-eselect/eselect-opengl.

Do we care to keep this now that Mesa's vc4 driver is in good shape?

Sure.  If you know what it's supposed to do and can make it do it, then
by all means take it.

Could we keep this package? I can take it, and make a proper release, if that 
would be enough to keep this package? I am using this on my gentoo with my Rpi3.
