Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

weston-launch gives me "failed to initialize egl"

I'm in the video group and using gma500_gfx. "lsmod | grep gma" outputs as it should according to the poulsbo wiki, with drm_kms_helper.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Is someone here who got xwayland into a working state? No matter what i try, every application that requires the xserver fails to start.

Relevant things:
- I'm on a wayland only archlinux installation, so no X except xwayland
- xwayland-git from AUR is installed
- xf86-video-ati-xwayland-git from AUR is installed
- I'm in the weston-launch group (as proposed here)
- xwayland.so is successfully loaded: [01:27:57.905] Loading module '/usr/lib/weston/xwayland.so'
- a DISPLAY-variable is created: DISPLAY=:0

If i try to start an application that requires X, this happens (Even if i pass GDK_BACKEND=x11 as argument):

$ gnome-terminal
** (gnome-terminal:3355): WARNING **: Could not open X display 
Failed to parse arguments: Cannot open display:

I really don't know why it doesn't work. The xserver with wayland-support is included in xwayland-git, right?!

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Not sure if it's still the case but you can recompile weston with

--enable-xwayland --with-xserver-path=/opt/xwayland/bin/Xorg

(or wherever xwaland-git installs the x server)

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Does anyone know what's up with qtwayland? I tried to compile the dev git branch for extra/qt5-base 5.1.0-1

And with qmake-qt5 I get

Checking for wayland... yes
Checking for xkbcommon... yes
Checking for wayland_cursor... yes
Checking for wayland_scanner... yes
Checking for wayland_egl... no
Checking for egl... no
Checking for brcm_egl... no
Checking for glx... yes
Checking for xcomposite... yes
Project MESSAGE: no wayland-egl support detected, cross-toolkit compatibility disabled

With google I only found http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/30362

But there is wayland-egl:

$ pkg-config --modversion wayland-egl
9.3.0-devel

I thought qt 5.1 was supported?

Thanks, things look a little bit better now:

[03:22:50.649] Loading module '/usr/lib/weston/xwayland.so'
[03:22:50.658] xserver listening on display :0
[...]
[03:22:59.454] forked X server, pid 589
[03:22:59.719] xserver crashing too fast: 256

I think the last line is the best: crashing too fast - I mean, is it really expected that the xserver crashes? And if yes, how fast/slow should it crash? I'm confused...

EDIT: Damn, compiling weston with the two options changed nothing, just checked the old logfile, there's even the same error message in it. grrr...

EDIT: Made a new thread describing my problem. I don't think this really belongs in this thread. If anyone wants to join, click here

Ok, so in qt 5.1 opengl es2 needs to be enabled.
In the qt5 pkbuild, add

-egl -opengl es2

to the configure parameters and rebuild.

Then in qtwayland qmake-qt5 shows "Checking for wayland_egl... yes"

The dev and the stable branch fail to compile with

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.8.1/../../../../lib/libQt5PlatformSupport.a(qeventdispatcher_glib.o): In function `QPAEventDispatcherGlib::~QPAEventDispatcherGlib()':
(.text+0x83): undefined reference to `g_source_destroy'

I think it is trying to statically link against glib (and later fontconfig) and glib doesn't have static libraries on archlinux.

And the master branch just fails with some errors like wayland-output-extension-client-protocol.h missing or so.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I've bought a new computer and gotten weston running. I want to use qupzilla, so I installed it and hawaii-meta-git from the maui project. hawaii gives me a blank screen and a broken system after I crtl-alt-bkspc out. What surprises me is that in weston without hawaii qupzilla-qt5-git won't load as root or userx despite having qtwayland etc.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Anyone ever seen anything like this? I took a photo because the screenshot shows everything correctly, so it's obviously a display issue not a rendering issue. The bottom part of the screen is what shows up when I launch the terminal emulator by clicking in the upper left. Launching it within X works fine, too, this only happens when I try to launch weston alone.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

In case people didn't see it: The current xwayland can run as normal X too. So there's no need to install xwayland somewhere else from your system X or decide between the two.

xwayland-git didn't install everything needed (xorg macros etc.) and xorg-server-xwayland didn't compile I think so I just modified xorg-server-git from AUR minimally, changed source to xserver::git+git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver#branch=xwayland and added --enable-wayland to the autogen parameters. It works fine with xf86-video-intel-xwayland-git (after removing the dependency on xwayland-git) both as xwayland in weston and as normal X.

But with qt5 I didn't have luck either. qtbase-git doesn't compile and with qt5 with -opengl es it fails linking. Does anyone have it working in any way?

Could you explain that a little bit further? I don't really get it.

Or do you mean I can completely uninstall X and just go with xwayland without the need of a running wayland in the background?

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I mean that you can uninstall the xorg-server from the repositories and install xwayland instead. And you can still use xwayland packages like the "normal" X without wayland.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I'm running that way now, although I modified the xorg-server package in [extra] instead of starting with the one in the AUR. They're very similar, so same effect.

D4ve, simply put, xwayland is xorg-server, just with some extra stuff in it. It runs exactly the same as xorg-server does, just with the added ability to run rootless under wayland.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I was just watching some video from XDC (X.Org Developer Conference), it sounds like they want to get xwayland merged into master before 1.15, which is now scheduled to be released on Christmas. This means no more building from the AUR, xwayland will be there and ready to go on installations from the official repos.

reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdd0zFQCU_I

I'm waiting for "Chris Halse Rogers - Nested Xservers, Mir & Wayland", which was earlier today be no video yet, and "Kristian Høgsberg, Daniel Stone - Wayland update" which is tomorrow.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Well but will xwayland support be enabled in the DDX drivers, too? The wayland website has instructions on how to compile xf86-video-nouveau with xwayland (isn't on the AUR) but I had no luck.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n … px=MTQ3MzQ

This would save the day maybe. Bascially it just replaces xf86-video-{intel,ati,nouveau} and has xwayland inside it.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I don't believe either the ati or nouveau DDXs work with the updated 1.14 xorg-server/xwayland. Not sure about intel.

The brand new xf86-video-wlglamor is working for me on an ATI card, though. I saw a discussion on IRC about this, it seems to be their answer instead of adding support in each DDX. Haven't figured out a good way to switch back and forth, but haven't spent much time on it.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

Since the last thing I said was that I haven't figured out a good way to switch back and forth, I thought I would update this.

xwayland has been updated to use wlglamor as a fallback now, so no more xorg.conf.d file needed. If it doesn't find another DDX that will work, it will try to use wlglamor automatically if it finds it.

Re: Wayland on Arch Linux?

I've found that it only happens with hardware rendering/EGL, so I think it is a driver issue. Enlightenment has support for wayland clients within their X compositor, so I'm testing from there. weston-simple-egl gives me the same problem, weston-simple-shm runs fine. I haven't looked into getting weston running on software only.

TheCycoONE, I went ahead and filed a bug report against wayland/weston. I'm on an X1400 as well, so if they just say it's the driver and not their problem, I'll file one against mesa.
