Re: HEADS UP: Wayland and WebRTC enabled for NetBSD 9/Linux

Is Velox written in such a way that it's predicted to compile and correctly run on freeBSD?

Hey Nia,


When you say "Wayland turned on by default"...

This means that core toolkits can now talk the protocol without needing
to be recompiled.

does that mean you can run a Wayland display server instead of an X
server on NetBSD 9?

You can!

Is there such a server?

See wm/velox. Read MESSAGE.

Or would you run something like Weston in the existing X session?

Weston is pretty Linuxy. Might have another look at it at some point, but
I'm trying to rely on shims and compat as little as possible.

You might notice devel/wayland has been patched to use kqueue directly.
Similarly, velox has been patched to use wscons directly.

Just for fun I tried wm/velox on my intel 915 laptop with functioning
drm, as per the message in velox.

It starts, shows the screen fine, together with the status bar - which
then proceeds to load 100% one CPU thread and does not react to
anything else; I also can't switch to other cpnsole screens as with X,
but that is probably to be expected. I had to ssh to the system to
kill status_bar and velox to get the console back. I even installed
sakura, which by default is invoked as a terminal emulator, according
to the default configuration, but it didn't start (ALT+SHIFT+RETURN).

I guess it is early days. I wasn't aware at all that wayland is getting here.


But, again, I want to talk about this at FOSDEM... :)
