    Phoronix: Trying Out Wayland With Rebecca Black

    For those that may have extra time this weekend and have been meaning to try out the experimental Wayland Display Server, one of the easiest ways to try out this eventual X.Org Server replacement is by using a Wayland LiveCD that's dubbed Rebecca Black. Besides including a recent snapshot of Wayland, it also integrates the support for various tool-kits and other applications...

      Awesome! But just a clearification, XWayland, the nested xserver for Wayland IS built, it's just that xwayland doesn't seem to be in a fully working state yet. (the contents of the windows don't refresh)

      Also I am working on trying to make an updated, more recent ISO soon, so don't worry about the Febuary date.

                I like Heroin Day better.

                Where I tweak and listen to 3rd order distortion on my tubeamp.

                  I was trying it out earlier when, after starting another instance of Wayland (that's what it was as far as I could tell), the screen froze. I then rebooted (Ctrl+Alt+Del worked) and ever since that it won't boot up properly. It hangs either with a bunch of "" characters in the upper left corner of the screen, or just with a black screen. I've tried re-writing the ISO to the USB stick, but still same deal. I don't really understand why it could work one time and then now it doesn't work even though I've rewritten the image to make sure nothing had changed on my USB stick.

                  Any ideas on what I could do to solve this? Are there any logs stored anywhere that could be useful?

                    Wrote the image to my USB stick a third time and now it works! (until it hangs. but I suspect this is a GPU driver bug and not Wayland's fault as it happens here in Natty as well (though Natty recovers after 10 seconds or so)).

                    I tried running programs in /usr/local/bin and it seems the demos work. I'm not sure which are demos and which are "normal" applications that aren't expected to work. I get a lot of "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" and errors that say this (usually the two errors are combined, if I recall correctly):
                    Code:
                    Failed to load platform plugin "wayland". Available platforms are: 
                    minimal
                    xcb
                    It's really cool to see, for example, the sample-egl program and the ability that I'm able to rotate anything (via Super+Alt+Right Mouse). Looks *really* smooth.

                    Thanks for your work on this distro!

                      I recently updated the ISO, and it has all the toolkits now, (except clutter, that might be on a upcoming ISO, I recently found a git repo that has an updated clutter for Wayland 0.95)

                      The Wayland developers have fixed Xwayland over the months, so it's actually somewhat 'usable', but very glitchy:
                      http://sourceforge.net/projects/rebe...s/Wayland2.png
                      http://sourceforge.net/projects/rebe...s/Wayland1.png

                      And thanks to weston-launch, I have Wayland (and the clients) running as the USER instead of root when it's running as a native display server. (After login, which still requires the X11 login manager) And if Weston fails it falls back to KDE.

                      Edit: that was fast! (or I didn't notice the new article while posting this)

                        This is seriously one of the absolutely worst names you could have decided to give your OS.

                        To objectively illustrate this point (that means watch how the rest of the world thinks this is stupid and it is not just me and my opinion) just watch how not only does Jimmy Fallon do your song as a comedy sketch, he also has a top rated guest comedy show host (his competition - it was that super stupid it warranted crossing the line to make fun of it) do it also but come on as lead singer and then ++ have a 3rd celebrity slide down center stage because it is so awesomely stupidly easily requiring no talent that the ease of making fun of it because it is so ....fn bad failure that it is like Elmer Fud wabbit season, it just boggles the mind that anyone would forever want to name their OS this.

                          Do you think you can get Chromium working via the Ozone backend? I see they just released a preview: https://01.org/ozone-wayland/blogs/t...review-release
