Testing Xorg drivers

Now, we can check if everything works correctly

disp_test

To check if Mali is working correctly, open Xterm, and type

sunxi_disp_test

If you will see that colorful triangle, everything is great. If window will only “blink”, and you will see error in terminal, try again to add user to group video and reboot

sudo usermod -a -G video username

or check if you have really installed xserver-xorg-video-sunximali.

glxgears

You can test graphics also using glxgears (type sudo apt-get install mesa-utils to install it).
