Source Code Tree
This is a brief summary of Mesa's directory tree and what's contained in
each directory.
- **docs** - Documentation
- **include** - Public OpenGL header files
- **src**
- **amd** - AMD-specific sources
- **addrlib** - common sources for creating images
- **common** - common code between RADV, RadeonSI and ACO
- **compiler** - ACO shader compiler
- **llvm** - common code between RADV and RadeonSI for compiling
shaders using LLVM
- **registers** - register definitions
- **vulkan** - RADV Vulkan implementation for AMD Southern Island
and newer
- **compiler** - Common utility sources for different compilers.
- **glsl** - the GLSL IR and compiler
- **nir** - the NIR IR and compiler
- **spirv** - the SPIR-V compiler
- **egl** - EGL library sources
- **drivers** - EGL drivers
- **main** - main EGL library implementation. This is where all
the EGL API functions are implemented, like eglCreateContext().
- **freedreno** - Adreno-specific sources
- **fdl** - mipmap layout manager
- **vulkan** - Turnip is a Vulkan implementation for
Qualcomm Adreno
- **gbm** - Generic Buffer Manager is a memory allocator for
device buffers
- **intel** - Intel-specific sources
- **blorp** - BLit Or Resolve Pass is a blit and HiZ resolve framework
- **vulkan** - Anvil is a Vulkan implementation for Intel gen 7
(Ivy Bridge) and newer
- **mapi** - Mesa APIs
- **glapi** - OpenGL API dispatch layer. This is where all the GL
entrypoints like glClear, glBegin, etc. are generated, as well as
the GL dispatch table. All GL function calls jump through the
dispatch table to functions found in main/.
- **mesa** - Main Mesa sources
- **main** - The core Mesa code (mainly state management)
- **math** - vertex array translation and transformation code
(not used with Gallium)
- **program** - Vertex/fragment shader and GLSL compiler code
- **state_tracker** - Translator from Mesa to Gallium. This is
basically a Mesa device driver that speaks to Gallium.
- **vbo** - Vertex Buffer Object code. All drawing with
glBegin/glEnd, glDrawArrays, display lists, etc. goes through
this module. The results is a well-defined set of vertex arrays
which are passed to the device driver (or transform and lighting
module) for rendering.
- **x86** - Assembly code/optimizations for 32-bit x86 systems
(not used with Gallium)
- **x86-64** - Assembly code/optimizations for 64-bit x86 systems
(not used with Gallium)

- **iris** - Driver for Intel gen 8 (Broadwell) and newer.
- **lima** - Driver for ARM Mali-400 (Utgard) series.
- **llvmpipe** - Software driver using LLVM for runtime code
- **nouveau** - Driver for NVIDIA GPUs.
- **panfrost** - Driver for ARM Mali Txxx (Midgard) and
Gxx (Bifrost) GPUs.

- **zink** - Driver that uses Vulkan for rendering.
- **auxiliary** - Gallium support code
- **cso_cache** - Constant State Objects Cache. Used to filter
out redundant state changes between frontends and drivers.
- **draw** - Software vertex processing and primitive assembly
module. This includes vertex program execution, clipping,
culling and optional stages for drawing wide lines, stippled
lines, polygon stippling, two-sided lighting, etc. Intended
for use by drivers for hardware that does not have vertex
shaders. Geometry shaders will also be implemented in this
- **gallivm** - LLVM module for Gallium. For LLVM-based
compilation, optimization and code generation for TGSI
shaders. Incomplete.
- **hud** - Heads-Up Display, an overlay showing GPU statistics

Currently there's run-time code generation for x86/SSE,
PowerPC and Cell SPU.

manipulating and interpreting GPU programs.
