    Don't bother to try Leopard. Mental illness is common in the Linux community. Moronix forums is where the sickest gather to shit post in essentially an echo chamber.

      Not really. KWin isn't going to support EGLStreams, so it's pretty irrelevant whether XWayland supports it or not. Just stick to AMD if you are KDE user.
      Whats the difference between hardware forcing you to run certain software and software forcing you to run certain hardware? You are the other side of the shekel mate.

        Isn't that a plain lie too?
        You did not read the article yourself?

        "AMD is creating Radeon bundles in order to get Vega to actual users who wants to buy cards. Scott Herkelman Vice President & GM Radeon Gaming business unit, said that it created Radeon packs to ensure that cards will go to gamers. AMD also asked its etail partners to limit sales to one Vega per customer."

        That's what they can do. Miners are still their customers, shafting them would be equally bad.

        Let's look at the past. When did you start to have functioning AMD cards on Linux vs when on Nvidia?
        I don't care of "functioning". I want opensource on Linux. That's the whole point of it. If I just want "functioning" I would be on Windows, where all works fine and the sun always shines.

        (And I actually have a Windows rig for gaming and one for retrogaming)

        Just throw away your AMD fanboying , don't try to justify every AMD move.
        I've got nothing against NVIDIA per-se, I use/recommend them for Windows users depending on what they actually need.

          This is a generic statement that can also apply to your post too.

          Overall, I'd say 3/10, you can definitely do better trollposts.

            Its not the best time right now... The prices of GPU's is insane..

            I bought a 6G nvidia 1060 last summer for about £260, the exact same card from the site I bought it is now charging £370 for it..

                I usually have a big problem with people insinuating that somehow Red Hat is forcing Linux in a particular direction (with systemd, gnome etc.). But this is the one time I think there's justification in that viewpoint. Capitulating to Nvidia is a dick move, everyone needs to stand strong against them. Nvidia needs to support Wayland, not vice-versa. And Red Hat caving makes it less likely that Nvidia fall in line (which they need to do or be left out in the cold).

                I'm not familiar with the politics of Xorg, but I really hope they refuse this patch.

                  The most recent updates are from 3 months ago! It really doesn't seem to getting much traction.
                  Looks like nvidia wanted to let others do the hard work, realized that no one cared (because GBM works) and now they are forcing EGLStreams again.

                    They support wayland with an open KHRONOS standard called EGLStreams. Its the linux community forcing their platform monopoly junk GBM onto the users not nvidia.
