    Hello Masters,

    I am new to PowerVr and Graphics, As a beginner i want to test few examples on Pandaboard Es. Also Want to build any one example for pandabord.
    Please Tell me the simplest way for testing the powervr.




    1) I ahve download the PowerVR SDK installer on my host ubuntu x86 pc
    2) edit the make_example.mak with “PLATFORM=armv7”
    3) make (02_IntroducingPVRShell example)
    4) copy exicutable to panda board

    5) on Pandaboard sudo apt-get install ubuntu-omap4-extras
    6) sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libGLES_CM.so.1 /usr/lib/libGLES_CM.so

    7)sudo ./OGLESIntroducingPVRShell
    Can’t open remote control input device (/dev/ttyS1)
    PVRShell: EGL 1.4 initialized
    PVR:(Error): OSIsProcessPrivileged: not implemented, default returns false [598, /osfunc_um.c]
    Exit message has been set to: “PVRShell: Unable to create surface
    InitAPI failed!
    PVRShell: Unable to create surface

    8) why this is happening? whats the wrong.

    Depending on the OS build you have running on your Panda, you may need to use the hard-float (hf) version of our LinuxARMv7 SDK. If you select the Linux ARM package during SDK installation, the soft-float and hard-float packages will be downloaded.

    I would recommend using the pre-built binaries in our SDK to test your device before trying to build your own. This will help you isolate the problem.
