    Phoronix: GNOME Lands Mainline NVIDIA Wayland Support Using EGLStreams

    While waiting for a new API that can succeed GBM and is agreed upon by both NVIDIA and the open-source community, GNOME developers have gone ahead and merged support for using EGLStreams into their Mutter compositor so that the current proprietary NVIDIA Linux driver will work with GNOME on Wayland...

    When I tried the patchset 2-3 weeks ago everything was flipped and inverted when using the normal X session. I hope that's fixed now. Wayland worked fine except for Xwayland as expected. Has anyone hear anything new how NVIDIA now intends to support Xwayland and have full hardware acceleration with it?

      As a Gnome and Nvidia binary user, the future is looking pretty good!

        coul we see some performance/usage comparisons?

          Performance of what? Which performance? You can drag windows around without the cursor lagging behind the title bar, that's enough of an improvement to use it over the X session.

            GBM VS EGLStreams not X vs wayland.

              There isn't any driver that supports both GBM and EGLStreams, so how do you expect to compare its performance?

                Why? Why can't the community stay compact on a decision for a fuck1ng single time? Let's welcome two different codepaths for the time being, such a way nobody will ever never agree on a new API. Good job Gnome, such a great job.

                  Eglstreams is a standard https://www.khronos.org/registry/egl...KHR_stream.txt. if other drivers dont support it they are not compliant.

                    Not compliant with what exactly? An extension nvidia alone created? It's not a requirement for any egl versions I've seen.
