Re: Etnaviv, Mesa 3D and Novena

2D acceleration solves the window-dragging issue.  There's a reason desktop PCs didn't get that feature until hardware accelerated video started being a thing.

Re: Etnaviv, Mesa 3D and Novena

I've installed the packages from Xobs' NAS and in spite of seeing the armada driver load in my Xorg.0.log, rendering is now significantly /slower/ hmm

Where should I be looking?

Re: Etnaviv, Mesa 3D and Novena

That's the correct place.

Without a kernel with etnadrm enabled you won't get accelerated video.  And up to now, all kernels have had one thing or another wrong with them.  I'm putting the finishing touches on a 3.19 that has accelerated 2D video support and is more stable.

I tried to enable acceleration/OMTC in iceweasel and got:
