    Default Systemd-Logind Device Management For Wayland

    Phoronix: Systemd-Logind Device Management For Wayland

    David Herrmann is on a coding spree this summer. His latest set of ten patches this week provide for device management support using systemd's logind service...

    This means that wayland itself can be used like a desktop manager (ie gdm) or i am talking BS.

    No, it means your wayland compositor does no longer need to run as root.

    Michael,

    The patches you linked to have nothing (yet) to do with Wayland nor Weston. They implement device management in Logind itself (systemd), not Wayland or Weston.

    Wayland didn't get anything yet, just systemd.

    I feel happy everytime systemd gets shoved down people's throats. it makes the neckbeards so angry.

    Let's hope they never fuck up, you will have to live with it.
    Anyways, as long as this is optional I couldn't care less. If this will become a hard dependency Wayland will have lost for me, simple as that.

    I wonder if there's a reason of putting all this extra stuff into SystemD.
    I mean, if they're also looking for BSD compatibility then this is the wrong way to go about it.

    My understanding is that they couldnt care any less about BSD. It's linux kernel only thing, and I've heard it described as they want it to be "the userspace kernel"....

    So this is a way to cripple the BSDs by proxy, by having essential future frameworks e.g. Wayland depend on SystemD which is Linux only?
    Sounds pretty bleak.
