Have you had any luck determining whether all of the GL extensions we need are available on the PPC Mini?
About GL extensions, someone who knows about OpenGL has to look at it...
For ARB shaders support, test is done on "GL_ARB_fragment_program" and it is not present. So I guess it's just no.
GL_ARB_vertex_program is available. I don't know if something can be done with that.
What I have tested so far:
- Video playback: works fine in sw rendering mode (I haven't check many formats - MPEG-4 mainly)
- Music: not tested
- Pictures: I only displayed a few pictures. It looks OK, but I saw endian problem with libexif - gonna try to look at it
- Weather: OK
- Scripts: not tested
- Settings / Menu navigation: looks fine
I haven't really looked at the Library mode either.
So there are many more things to test, but I would say that the "basic" works.
As davilla said, patches are in svn.
It would be great to have feedback from other people.
Anyone has tried to compile/run it on a PPC mac?
