Disable llvmpipe swrast for ARM
Last modified: 2012-06-07 15:29:48 EDT
Apps that use clutter (or OpenGL) currently crash on ARM with messages like:
LLVM ERROR: Not supported instr %R0<def> = LEApcrel <cp#1>, pred:14, pred:%nore
e.g. glxgears, totem
This is because mesa is built with llvmpipe for ARM, but llvm for ARM is broken at the moment.
ppc* already disables llvmpipe within mesa.spec for similar reasons. Can ARM be added to this exception case too?
That way the non-llvm swrast will be built, and apps that use clutter/OpenGL can run (albeit slowly!).
Done in F17 and master branches.
