    Phoronix: X.Org's Modesetting Driver Gets Smarter - Queries Mesa For Which GL Driver To Use

    The X.Org Server and its integrated "modesetting" DDX driver that is most commonly used on modern Linux systems in place of hardware-specific DDX drivers is finally getting more robust with xorg-server 1.21... It will no longer rely upon the server's PCI ID driver mapping for figuring out the DRI driver to load as needed for GLAMOR 2D acceleration over OpenGL...

        At least it still causes stutter in mpv here.

            Thanks Ken Graunke. Sounds like an elegant solution.

              Wayland uses KMS.

                Wayland does not use anything. It is just a protocol.

                It's up to the compositors to use something to present. Most of them use DRM/KMS though.

                    I suspect what you wanted to know was whether this helps XWayland, right?
