Re: Forgive my ignorance but how do you install Vulkan from the official Mesa Upstream per the recent blog post

Can anyone tell me what build of vkQuake1/2/3 actually compiles and runs on rpi4 ?
I got mesa 20.3 up and running and the Vulkan examples/demos seem to run

I haven't been able to build AND run any version of vkQuake.

Performance of Pi4 V3DV driver in next Mesa release

Seeing as the Vulkan driver from Igalia has been merged in Mesa, is it possible to comment on any performance numbers? Is there a build available to try out, or do we need to wait for the next stable release of Mesa?

What happens if you disable dash and reboot?

You might want to check out the Motorola lapdock. It's a dock for their Atrix phone, but one of the ports is a mini hdmi input. More importantly, they are on sale as the phone is getting replaced my newer models. Originally ~$300-400, you can now get them for $50-$60 if you are lucky. With some slig...

I thought they were only going to be available at raspberrypi.com ?

And no preorders etc?

Re: tablet kit?

Short answer, no.

Long answer not in any practical way. You could, but you wouldn't like the result.

Get a super cheap tablet, and It'd probably be a lot better and cheaper than any kind of touchscreen with hdmi.
