    Phoronix: DRI2 Driver For Mesa EGL In The Works

    Kristian Høgsberg, the mastermind behind DRI2 and the one behind the Wayland Display Server, has a new announcement and that's a DRI2 driver for the new Mesa EGL implementation. Kristian's work interfaces EGL with DRI2 and is described as a "nice, self-contained implementation." Kristian has aspirations to add support for EGL with a DRI2 driver on the KMS frame-buffer, which could be used in the Wayland world. Kristian previously wrote the Eagle EGL stack as part of his work on Wayland, but those Eagle-specific bits have been dropped after Gallium3D received a new EGL state tracker and Kristian has merged some Eagle bits with Mesa. Kristian's announcement concerning this DRI2 driver for EGL can be read on mesa3d-dev...

        who here is starting to think that wayland isn't just "for fun, nothing serious"?
        it looks like one day it might, might, become a viable alternative.

        and is it "meh suh" or "may sah"?

          I've always said/thought it as 'may sah', as that's how the geological feature is pronounced.
