not yet. It seems to be some user-space app making use of a working drm based setup
allowing to choose commands by keyboard.

Maybe it is related to the


Seems they differentiate between
* SDK - for apps
* DDK-UM - for libs
* DDK-KM - for kernel

Yes that all seems to be about the next higher layer.

Let me try to define layers (well we really should start to fill the project Wiki)

5. demos and applications
4. libsrv_um and others (reads /etc/powervr.ini and /proc/cmdline and others)
3. libdrm and others
2. ioctl + mmap on /dev/dri/card
1. pvrsrvkm + uKernel
0. sgx hardware inside SoC

With DDK1.17 Mesa3D plays some role that I do not yet understand...
