The change is only for software using some specific classes inside libqt5gui5. If your video card supports GLES (aka OpenGL ES) then you should be fine. I *think* that most video cards support both GLES and Desktop OpenGL, but feel free to point me wrong. Also I understand that if your video card does not supports GLES then software-based rendering might happen. The real issue here is that *many* arm64 boards currently do not support Desktop OpenGL, but do support GLES. Also applications using GLU[T] or glew will not be able to compile anymore on arm64. GLU[T] has not been ported to GLES, glew somehow differs in a type definition. > >From what I see the problem is with Qt not being able to be built with > > support for both OpenGL and OpenGLES ;( That would be ideal, but yes, it's currently a build-time selection. -- The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
