Accidentally switched to mesa driver

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hello all,

Using FriendlyDesktop.

I think I've accidentally switch to mesa drivers and I was wondering how to switch back to the mali driver.

glmark2-es2:

Error: eglInitialize() failed with error: 0x3001

Does anyone know how I can switch back to the mali driver?
Nevermind, I don't understand how graphics drivers work in this world. A fresh install shows the same glxinfo
accelerated driver support EGL/OpenGL ES2, not a Desktop GLX/OpenGL.

try `eglinfo` and GL ES2 version of software, like `glmark2-es2` to use accelerated(ARM Mali) drivers.
