    Phoronix: Mesa 21.0, Linux 5.11 Prepared For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Updates

    Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS is expected later this month as the next point release to the "Focal Fossa" long-term support cycle. With this update comes the hardware enablement stack from Ubuntu 21.04 which in turn means Linux 5.11 and Mesa 21.0 graphics support is available as package updates now...

    21.10 dailies have Gnome 40 now, so if you're interested in having a trouble-free & mature Gnome 40 / Wayland experience in 22.04 LTS, 21.10 will be the one to bug-hunt in.

      ... if your computer can boot it. (couple of mine can't)

        Edit to add: The jump to kern 5.11 was a little weird on my desktop. For months I've been on 5.8.x like most using LTS. Then it installs 5.10 a couple days ago. Now it's 5.11. Presumably it'll stick to 5.11 till the next point release. I just don't remember LTS jumping minor version numbers that quickly before.

          Really hope 21.10 is better, tried my PI 4 with 21.04 and wayland yesterday, after login the keyboard stopped working except for the super (windows) key. All applications (shell, Firefox, menus, libreoffice, nautilus etc...) and yet system password requests still accepted input and worked fine. Switched to X and everything is smooth and I can type again.

            That's odd NathanG , I was running 21.04 on my Pi 4 with Wayland beautifully from the day it landed until last week when I switched to 21.10 dailies.

            You might want to try updating the EEPROM from a Raspbian SD Card, try a different keyboard, or try switching to the other bank of USB ports.

              Tried the keyboard and USB at the time but must admit not sure the last time the EEPROM was updated, I'll give it a try!

                "then you're out of your damn mind", is, I suspect, how that sentence should actually end.

                I'm running 21.04 on a Pi too, but with X - it was updated from 20.04 and has never even offered me Wayland. NathanG did you install from 20.10 and have it offered then, or did you add it yourself later?

                  Fresh install however found the cause and fix of the issue. Bug with logitech keyboards in wayland (I tried two different Logitech ones.). Hopefully resolved in 21.10.

                  Are you running the PI4 as I thought it offered it automatically, it was only on incompatible hardware it blocked it?

                  Does GDM just show Ubuntu with X as an option?

                    5.11 has been available via linux-generic-hwe-20.04-edge for quite a while now.
