    Phoronix: GNOME's Log-In Screen Will Still Work Without Wayland

    With the just-released GNOME 3.16 Beta there's a switch to use Wayland by default for the GDM log-in screen. For those wondering what this means to those using binary blob graphics drivers on your systems or in cases where Wayland isn't working, fear not...

      I'm glad to see Wayland starting to be used officially in such an important distro.
      I'm not sure about that, but can we expect to not have flickering at startup once we'll have the full Wayland stack?

        I do think so, at least Mir claims that and Wayland should be able to do the same thing. However I'm not sure they will be able to fix grub>plymouth flicker :/

              actually in my laptop with an ssd i have removed plymouth 2 days ago but most people have an hdd taking 30-60 seconds to boot
              but in my laptop it takes 6 seconds not 2

                i did it because a bug in manjaro kernel 3.14 and lower plymouth doesnt work correctly and in 3.15 and higher touchpad doesnt work correctly on my acer aspire e5-571 (everything was the same with the hdd)

                  Good question actually. What do you people use instead? Just black screen?
                  Is it possible to conf grub to show my background picture and let it stay during the boot process?

                    Output from init. I always thought that plymouth'y things are eye candy niche and used by few people.
