(Posted this under General support, but it seems to fit better here.)

Am trying to run Navit on a Raspberry. Have cloned from Git and compiled on the Pi.

Tried the following graphics type settings in navit.xml:

"opengl": freeglut failed to open display ''
"sdl": graphics_sdl:graphics_sdl_new:SDL_Init failed: -1
"egl": Unable to initialize SDL: -1 No available video device.

I have Kivy running, which I thought would provide OpenGL support. When starting Kivy it says (among other things):

Using the "OpenGL ES 2" graphics system

Addition: it also says:

[Text] Provider: sdl2
[Window] Provider: egl_rpi

According to what I read somewhere, Kivy also supports SDL. I included the libraries for OpenGL & SDL when I installed Navit.

So is it possible to run Navit using only Kivy? Which settings should I use?

Bonus question: can I run it on one "Screen" under the "ScreenManager"?
