    Playing With GTK/Qt5/SDL/EFL On Wayland 1.2

    Phoronix: Playing With GTK/Qt5/SDL/EFL On Wayland 1.2

    The Wayland LiveCD has been updated against the new Wayland/Weston 1.2 release. This Linux LiveCD also ships with the Wayland-enabled GTK3, Qt5, SDL, and Enlightenment EFL tool-kits for easily trying out this next-generation Linux display stack...

    Neither Aug 30 nor Sep 1 work for me - Nvidia gtx 560Ti, it just stops with a blank screen like a terminal with something written. The iso from July 14 worked fine. Someone send a Nvidia card to nerdopolis please, I could send myself if I wasn't that greedy and selfish.

    And it seems it was related to this, http://cgit.freedesktop.org/wayland/...adc778a9108a5f which is a recent fix in Weston. However, instead, I am now installing libva http://rebeccablackos.svn.sourceforg...&revision=1603 so it can be used for Weston's new hardware accelerated screen recording

    Since nerdopolis seems to hang here, and I couldn't find an official bug tracker, I thought I would report this here:

    The initial boot takes me into TTY, and TTY8 contains this error message:

    Loading module /opt/lib/i386-gnu-linux/weston/drm-backend.so
    Failed to load module /opt/lib/i386-gnu-linux/weston/drm-backend.so: undefined symbol: vaapi_recorder_create

    Apparently this the showstopper here. Tested on NV92 and NV46 cards, same thing.

    can you please comment on why in this latest release "apt-cache policy libwayland0" (or so I recall the command) reports version 1.0.5 instead of 1.2?
    That's the version that comes with Ubuntu packages in /usr.

    Version 1.2 and other Wayland software is in /opt, and the checkinstall packages that I build are all suffixed with *-rbos

    Just tested and... very enthousiastic!

    No tearings! (Even in videos!)

    Of course there were things that didn't work, but what works is great!

    If you're just using wayland, there shouldn't be a user visible difference between the two (except one uses less space)
    Thanks, I downloaded the reduced one. And man it's awesome, I almost cried! After all these years the most annoying thing since back in the time when I used Beryl, the slow resizing of windows, is finally gone. I was also glad to see that EFL is already installed and that it is working perfectly. I liked the "Flip Page" test in particular. Hopefully this will eventually get integrated into an EFL pdf reader. Now I really can't wait for Fedora 20 or so when I can finally have a native Wayland desktop with Enlightenment. Developers, please hurry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another little thing I noticed is that buttons in Gtk applications now have an animated hover effect. I don't know if this is because of the new Gtk version or just because of the theme, but it is nice.

    Or loopback mount the .iso with grub2 and use so-scan/filename=$isofile as a kernel parameter to find the .iso from the kernel. Worked for me. No dd or seperate partition needed.
