I'm pleased to announce support for Vulkan for Fedora!
== What is Vulkan? == Vulkan is a new generation graphics and compute API that provides high-
efficiency, cross-platform access to modern GPUs.
Or: Vulkan is to OpenGL as Wayland is to X11. It does many of the same
things, but - with the benefit of a few decades of experience - it's a much
better match for both the hardware it targets, and the
applications trying to use the hardware.
== How do I get it? ==
$ sudo dnf copr enable ajax/vulkan
$ sudo dnf install vulkan anvil vkcube
Currently the repository includes the driver loader, as well as Intel's
open source drivers for gen8+ (Broadwell, Cherryview, Skylake, Broxton
and Kabylake) GPUs. The Intel drivers also have incomplete support for
Ivybridge, Haswell, and Baytrail devices; I can vouch that the
Ivybridge support is good enough to run the vkcube demo.
Package reviews have been created so this can all be integrated into the OS directly:
== What else can I do with it? ==
The Khronos group hosts a number of open source repositories related to
the Vulkan standard, including the specification and conformance test
A number of sample applications are available:
The API reference is available online:
Your favorite hardware driver or 3D game engine quite likely could use
help in enabling a Vulkan port, if you feel like getting your hands
dirty. The vulkan branch of Mesa would be a good place to start:
