    I received: we are not ready with M802 version
    But old MX version of kernel is public
    http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/ARM/kernel/
    27-Dec-2013 is latest version
    but it is old 3.0.8 kernel

    A bit better. I should have gone down in the directory structure… I only looked at the GPL directory.
    I can see they also have r3p2 drivers for Mali-400 – http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/ARM/gpu/gpu-2013-12-20-88078c9f9f.tar.gz

    Is it usable in Linux?

    Mali has 2 set of drivers
    1. Framebuffer only – gpu-2013-12-20-88078c9f9f.tar.gz
    2. X.org only

    for x.org version you can try
    https://github.com/linux-sunxi/sunxi-mali
    libv(co author of opensource drivers ) is big collector :)

    But as I wrote on this page. don’t expect good performance from x.org mali drivers.
    https://github.com/limadriver/xf86-video-mali

    But if you really want to play with mali on amlogic boards
    you can fallow howto-s on
    http://linux-sunxi.org/Main_Page
    http://linux-sunxi.org/Binary_drivers

    for x.org you can try this
    https://github.com/ssvb/xf86-video-fbturbo
    raspberry pi and Allwinner SOC add support for 2D acceleration of x.org
    amlogic has some 2D acceleration as far as I know (for window composition,..)

    And you can use linux xbmc ports as source of information
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2418029
    but they use mali Framebuffer drivers as xbmc support it
    They have bunch of patches for kernel in git (audio with full 48KHz output support, some network drivers patches,..)

    I use framebuffer drivers with Qt5

    And rockchip use mali in there soc-s
    you can try to modify picuntu (ubunutu for rockchip SoC)

    However, it does not appear to build.

    arch/arm/mach-meson8/include/mach/system.h:40:5: error: implicit declaration of function ‘WRITE_MPEG_REG’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
    WRITE_MPEG_REG(VENC_VDAC_SETTING, 0xf);
