The website states that progress has been made "using Raspberry PI or other Broadcom hardware".

I've looked at their graphics support and BCM2835 wasn't there. If it has been ported then what are the required libraries and tools to compile it for the Raspberry Pi?

    Have you tried compiling it yourself with your standard tools? Perhaps give it a go, if there are any errors then we might be able to provide more help.

  • Debian for one seems to have directfb on armel. Maybe your question is actually about something else (like whether a specific acceleration is available)?

This thread clearly indicates somebody has gotten it working. A download is attached there (v1.6) the guys' working version.

This thread also indicates that it sort of works, including with v1.7 and limited EGL support.

To make a long story short, it looks like the pieces to make this happen are floating around out there, but I don't see them all in one place or debugged to the point where there is are install packages that would just work in any of the major RPI distros.
