In fact valgrind is not in the repos. maybe I will compile it but not now.

the broadcom librarises are packaged with the distribution but are also available here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware in teh subfolder hardfp for raspbian. I dont think those libs are meant for anything else than the rpi gpu though. I didnt run anything with balgrind but I may do so soon.

I have a Dreamplug running wheezy, which may work. Where did you get the Broadcom libraries ?

fb-gnash works fine with AGG for me on Android and Ltib. I'd have to try raspbian to see what the problem is there. Have you tried using Valgrind ?

Also there is prolly more reports to come. I have seen fb-gnash to not work at all for me with the default renderer. didnt try anything else.

I am running raspbian whcih is a armv6 hardfloat build of debian wheezy. There are proprietary Libraries by Broadcom of which I compiled against libGLESv2, libEGL, libOpenVG. and some otehr broadcom helper libraries needed. Now I know this implementation of OpenGL-ES-2.0 works on the framebuffer and on X11. OpenVG I do not know, it should though cause it will only depend on libEGL supporting the Graphics stack. If you want some more info I may run it with gdb to produce more info or allow some ssh-access to commandline if needed for anything.

GTK support for OpenVG is incomplete, so of course it won't work unless somebody finishes it. Which distro are you running on your PI ? Most distros don't have an OpenVG library that works in the framebuffer, just under libMesa. The current OpenVG support has only been tested on a Babbage board running Ltib, or an Android device. I don't have a PI, so can't test there.

On the Raspberry Pi I have gnash compiled to use OpenVG.
Now this is what works fine:
"gtk-gnash -r 1 Creative_Commons_-_Get_Creative.swf"

Same thing but with OpenVG:
"gtk-gnash -r 1 -R openvg Creative_Commons_-_Get_Creative.swf"
produces a crash. logfile is attached.
hint: "Speicherzugriffsfehler" == "Segmentation Fault"

fb-gnash crashes too when run with same parameters as gtk-gnash
