    First I need to take some time to get some useful debug output from EGL and the radeon driver.

    Hey, at least the wayland terminal doesn't segfault anymore when wayland is running as a X client. Its output is just broken. Progress.

    then how do you expect it to be solved

      All ultra cool brand new smart phones have the feature of lock the screen and show some image while you try to unlock it.

        Per corporate policies, all our corporate desktop computers have a corporate screen-saver installed, that displays an animation involving the corporate logo; but the animation is not as animated as it should, and the corporate logo ends up being burned into our corporate LCD monitors...

          Great, it took a whole day for my posts to appear here, and then they appeared in the middle of old posts.

          Anyway, more on screen locking and screensavers here: http://ppaalanen.blogspot.com

            Heh, without cairo-gl it actually works. Didn't think cairo-gl was so broken when it is so long around already. Then it is working at least as X client, but in console, still horrible.

              since you are a wl dev would it be possible to give an answer on what parts of wayland are missing in order for it to be able to support a full desktop environment??

                Not really, sorry. I haven't worked with desktops enough to know what they need. You might get some idea, if you take the EWMH spec and assume everything is still missing. You might also add ICCCM, but AFAIU that is less relevant here, since the display server and window manager are the same process, and they actually contain policy, too, which the X server does not.

                Note, that EWMH is not supposed to be implemented directly. EWMH is for X, and Wayland is way different. But we do need lots of similar features, and those are pretty much missing.

                Also, I haven't looked at what the KDE, Gnome or other specific desktop projects have done, all I know at this time is the wayland demos.
