    Question Nokia 500 + OpenGL ES 1.1

    Does anybody tried to run OpenGL ES 1.1 application on Nokia 500 (no OpenGL HW)? I tried to install all three example SimpleCube applications, and non of them is working. Also I tried to install my application which runs without problems on Nokia 5230 (no OpenGL HW also, slower proc., etc) and on Nokia 500 it fails on eglCreateContext with error EGL_BAD_ALLOC. Any idea how to configure SW OpenGL on Nokia 500?

    You probably would have to install your own SW opengl library. But it would run very slow so I don't see much point in doing that.

    Re: Nokia 500 + OpenGL ES 1.1

    Symbian has own software implementation of the OpenGL ES 1.1 which I am using on S60 3.x and S60 5.0 devices. For example my application which uses HW OpenGL on Symbian^3 devices (ex: E7) runs without problems on S60 5.0 devices (ex: 5230) with SW OpenGL implementation. It of course runs slower, but after some optimizations it is usable.
    Nokia 500 has 1 GHz processor and for comarison Nokia 5230 has only 434 MHz, so OpenGL ES 1.1 applications should run on Nokia 500 using SW OpenGL implementation even better than on S60 5.0 devices. The problem is most probably in configuration of the EGL.

    Re: Nokia 500 + OpenGL ES 1.1

    I checked that on Nokia 500 function eglGetConfigs() returns 45 available EGL configuraitons but for each of these configurations function eglCreateContext() returns EGL_BAD_ALLOC. Is this some error of the Nokia 500 device?

    Did you ever manage to get this working?

    SW OpenGL ES implementation is not working on Nokia 500 (Anna/Belle). On Nokia 500 Belle I can create OpenVG egl canvas and use OpenVG API without problems. Egl configuration must set SampleBiffers, SampleSize and DepthSize to 0 to initialize.
