    Phoronix: X.Org Testing Ground Toolkit: Making It Less Difficult To Compile The X Server In 2024

    While the upstream X.Org Server development remains slow with most of the large vendors treating it in maintenance mode and not investing in new features, open-source developer Enrico Weigelt has been one of the few still working to improve the X.Org Server. As part of his work besides pushing new patches and testing of the latest X.Org Server Git state, today he announced the release of the X.Org Testing Ground Toolkit v0.0.1 as a means to help in facilitate testing of the latest X.Org Server Git by making it easier to build it...

    Wooohhhhoooo the zombie lives forever!

    To be honest though I have yet to be able to get wayland to work with any measure of stability and keep having to go back to Xorg to be a functionally productive member of society.

      Funny to see how competition can stir up things

        Same here. I have various compositors I'm interested in installed in parallel and occasionally see if things improve. But so far it would still cause more issues than anything for everyday use.

        So I'm glad someone is still patching up the xorg stuff.

          Maybe in 2050 they will make it even better.

            So, is a schroot a schooled root environment or what?

              I don't particularly have issues building Xorg itself. It's just the fucking Mesa dependency that's a true nightmare, when it's not even needed aside from some libs built early on (so even when it fails you can manually "install" them and continue without Mesa). I don't even fucking use Mesa with its Rust shit since I have Nvidia.

              Anyway I'm patching my Xorg all the time with security fixes, but I use the same Mesa libs I built so I don't have to go through that nightmare again.

                Isn't he the same developer that Linus told him to "shut up" on kernel mailing list after he said that COVID-19 vaccines are "big plan for creating new human race" or something like that?

                  But you seem to be a fan of systemd. . . .

                    Maybe they cling to xorg for similar conspiracy theory reasons.
