Texture Compression Tool for Ardeno - Linux Source code

Hello, I'm an android game developer and for my latest game, I require a texture compression tool for the Ardeno gpu preferably running on Linux platform. I've been digging AMD's website and the only thing I can find is http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/amdcompress/  and some legacy tool called compressonator, both written for Windows platform. I find it really hard to believe that AMD does not support linux. Can you please point me to the right link where there is at least some source code I can use?

Thanks!

Re: Texture Compression Tool for Ardeno - Linux Source code

You do understand that:
1. AMD does not make the GPU you mentioned ( even though there some history there ).

2. Compressed texture formats on mobile devices are NOT the same as those desktop devices. i.e. OpenGL ES is NOT OpenGL.

Re: Texture Compression Tool for Ardeno - Linux Source code

Hi, thank you for your reply. However, even though you are technically right that Ardeno is not produced by AMD, the texture compression extension used by it is GL_AMD_compressed_ATC_texture. Reading the spec (https://www.khronos.org/registry/gles/extensions/AMD/AMD_compressed_ATC_texture.txt ), the extension refers to AMD compressonator which however is a legacy product and the link in the spec is broken. The latest compression tools are given in the link in my original post.
