  1. If I remember correctly, VLC renders video...

    If I remember correctly, VLC renders video directly to X drawables without going through Qt, so even though it's Qt based and Qt supports Wayland it's probably not going to work on Wayland without...
  2. They could, but it would have to have almost...

    They could, but it would have to have almost exactly the same architecture as systemd. If I'm following the code and documentation correctly the system kdbus bus would have to be created and managed...
  3. Oh, and it turns out the version of systemd in...

    Oh, and it turns out the version of systemd in the Fedora 21 beta is actually somewhere between 216 and 217, so it has a slightly different implementation of the "shut down 15 minutes into booting"...
  4. I think Gnome's the main one right now, though...

    I think Gnome's the main one right now, though some KDE functionality (like suspending from the GUI) depends on it indirectly. The systemd developers are planning on making udev dependent on systemd...
  5. For the past decade or so you certainly could...

    For the past decade or so you certainly could switch to a different init system. Nothing much depended on the particular init system you chose other than init scripts, and those are all LSB-compliant...

    The Android security team supposedly gave mksh some level of auditing before allowing it into Android, but I've no idea how in-depth it was - they may only have checked that it didn't cause a...

    Oh joy. I'm still suffering from the after-effects of Intel deciding to rewrite the GLSL compiler and breaking stuff that never got fixed (and why would it - it's not like anyone runs anything...

    LLVM upgrades are a pain to do everywhere, I think - too many things depending on it.
  9. Still is in upstream KDE I think, the KDE...

    Still is in upstream KDE I think, the KDE developers were too busy arguing over the most elegant solution to actually fix it. (OpenSUSE have their own fix for it which makes it impossible to...

    They may run as seperate processes, but they're tightly coupled - the only one that can currently run independently is udev, and it's not clear how long that will last. (After all, having udevd...

    So if I'm following this correctly, it's basically like the situation we have right now with input on X - the original protocol has been essentially obsoleted by a new one, but all compositors that...

    Nope, I've been seeing it since 4.10.0 (that's the better part of a year!). I was under the impression that the entire 4.x series was the stable releases of KDE - they certainly seem to treat it that...

    No, my complaint comes down to this: part-way through the supposedly stable and mature KDE 4.x series, they introduced a bug in Plasma Desktop that it made it practically unusable for me because it...

    The early QML migration broke Plasma badly enough that I seriously considered switching away from KDE to something actually usable. Having the entire Plasma desktop crash and restart (or worse, not...

    Unless they've changed it, in the KDE 4 series locking the screen is handled by ksmserver with minor optional assistance from KWin's compositor - this is secure enough under X since it aggressively...
  16. Are you planning to let users change the...

    Are you planning to let users change the lock-screen background, or at least use their normal desktop background for it? The non-XScreensaver screen locker in 4.11 uses a background image that's...

    I invested the (thankfully relatively minimal) time required to get a clean backtrace and discovered that quite a number of people had already reported the same crash across multiple distros and KDE...

    Which again requires a bunch of functionality to be duplicated between the session and system compositors.


    That's not actually sufficient for several reasons. Firstly, EGL doesn't support...

    Thankfully, Wayland has allowed them to apply the Cascade of Attention-Deficit Teenagers development methodology to KDE development - rather than fixing bugs, they can just say it's probably X's...

    Having the compositor be the display server was one of the main original selling points, but in practice they ran into fundamental problems - on multi-user systems everyone would have to use the same...
