Tizen:Common on VMWare
« On:November 13, 2015, 04:09:38 PM »
For those who attended the sessions about Tizen’s Common platform development in China ( https://dockr.eurogiciel.fr/blogs/embedded/tds14sh/ ), you might have noticed that I used a Tizen:Common Virtual machine with Accelerated Graphics.

(tizen-common-vmware-20141009.3rzr.ogv)

The emulation is pretty smooth and accurate enough to test WEBAPI and EFL applications thanks to MESA’s gallium driver, GLES/ 3D and Video support.

So, First install VMPlayer (I used “VMware-Player-6.0.3-1895310.x86_64.bundle” from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ ) then download file tizen-common_20141009.3_common-wayland-mbr-i586-sda.raw.vmdk.zip (sha1=aa7affde1d708fd96fbb0606db1bf8fa65c196ad) from :
http://opensource.eurogiciel.fr/home/pcoval/pub/file/ , and just start VM :

cd ~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks
unp tizen-common-vmware-20141009.3rzr.zip
cd tizen-common-vmware-20141009.3rzr/
xdg-open tizen-common-wayland-mbr-i586-sda-20141019rzr.vmx

Then press “[ I Copied It ]” button

Then OS should boot and weston should appear if not then adjust RAM and reboot. It is the same as Intel’s NUC, at least 256MB of Video memory is required ( https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/Install_Tizen_Image#BIOS_settings )

Under the hood, as said earlier this image ships an older version of mesa that provide gallium driver (built with –enable-gallium-egl flag).

Unfortunately support was dropped last year :
http://git.baserock.org/cgi-bin/cgit.cgi/delta/mesa.git/commit/?h=10.4&id=c46c551c56f78c6bf9e63524c89478695fc4f525

But work in progress where shared into this bug report :

“[regression] weston-simple-egl not running anymore inside qemu”
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86701

Also note that same Gallium component was also used in our software rendrer experiments on GPU less configurations such as Atmel’s SAMA5D4-Xplained ( https://dockr.eurogiciel.fr/blogs/embedded/qtwayland-sama5d4-xplained/ ).
