    Phoronix: Adaptive-Sync/VRR Seeing Port To xf86-video-modesetting Driver

    Currently if wanting to use Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync variable refresh rate support of the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver you need to be using the xf86-video-amdgpu X.Org driver for proper handling as well, but a port of the DDX bits to the generic xf86-video-modesetting driver is in the works...

      I guess it already works in Wayland?
      But I don't know. Just a guess.

        It does but only for GNOME/Mutter. It has to be implemented by the compositor.

          Sad to see how there's very little interest of getting this into Wayland aside from in GNOME, but KDE Plasma still has other hiccups on Wayland anyway. I quite enjoy using adaptive sync on my main machine though.

            I'm 100% positive it isn't a matter of interest, it's a matter of difficulty. Duplication of effort is probably the -only- legacy wayland will be remembered for. 25 years from now I have little doubt most people will still be using X11 and wayland will be a horrible memory.

              Notice that this code change is going into modeset. Which is the in-kernel graphics support. Which is what Wayland uses.

              In 25 years you may still think you're using X11, but it will only be a thin wrapper over code which is identical to a Wayland compositor.

                  LOL. You are so delusional. Wayland will be mainstream in 1-2 years from now. 21.04 of Ubuntu most likely will make it default. Now that Wayland firefox is THE browser to use on Linux if you want performance and vaapi support, and Gnome Wayland is rock solid, it is just a matter of time.

                    The only problem is, you are forced to share the whole desktop in XWayland Zoom meetings.
