i suggest you start reading the egl header file from khronos. then get mesa.
then start implementing the functions listed int egl.h. you start with
stubs first. you will have a good understanding of whats needs to be
implemented by then. its either a call into mesa or system calls to
get a surface etc.
maybe you create a test program showing how egl should be used first.
you should also get hardware that mesa/dri actually supports. actually
it does not matter. just get the software rendering working first.
when you have that then start digging into hardware accel.
