    Wayland Live CD

    Hi.

    I posted about this earlier in the middle a thread, but it appears that the thread got jailed after an argument broke out or something.

    Anyway, I know that many people are interested in testing out the new Wayland Display Server, but many people can't test it without building themselves, which can be a very difficult task.


    I am working on a Wayland Live CD here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/rebeccablackos/ Right now, it does have the Wayland Display server on it, but it does not yet have the nested x server, or the Wayland versions of any toolkits that are ported to Wayland. I still need to figure out how to build those...

    Wayland can work in a window under X, or it can run in a TTY. It does not work in virtual box at all, due to the drivers not supporting it, and I only tested on Intel hardware.

    If you want to run it in a tty, you must run
    Code:
    sudo bash
    weston
    because sudo removes the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, which is needed.

    believe it or not, Wayland apparently already supports spanning across two monitors. I attached a picture of it running. The garbage and ghosting on the first screen is due to a faulty screen, which is going to be replaced.


    As for the name of the project, yes. I AM a fan of her.

    Good job on the Wayland thing. Keep up the good work.

    You should rename it, though. A lot of people won't touch it just because of the name, for the same reasons that people don't want the Justin Bieber and Hanna Montana distros.

    When it's installed, it only tries to start Wayland, I don't have the option yet. If Wayland crashes, it should fall back to X... But Wayland could be hanging on startup...

    I'll need to find a way to fix that

    The computer I put it onto was the one with hybrid graphics ......

    I did try it on a very old Acer LC1355 ... and although wayland did not run from boot up on that one it did bypass wayland and go into the X window ....

    This is what made me try it again on the hybrid intel+nvidia ..... as I thought I had not
    waited long enough ..... but even waiting a long time the second time .... it made no difference .....

    I will have a look at that tomorrow and see if there are any other differences. ty

    There already is an early iso build, which has the Wayland display server available to run.

    ...but it just doesn't have some of the REALLY cool stuff thats out there for Wayland, because I need to figure out how to make a build script for those...

    Thanks!

    As for the name, I guess I just wanted to make her an Honorary Linux Distro, with the further honor of it being one of the first ones I know of with Wayland preinstalled... ...If the CD ends up more mature, I might fork it with just the default branding...

    How do I get wayland or weston to run ?

    I get failed nouveau and libEGL errors, I did lsmod | grep nouveau and it says its loaded.
    I didnt install it, just running the live dvd, it looks real nice though

    Thanks

    Wayland inside X? WE MUST GO DEEPER!

    Nice job, by the way. Wayland is one of the most exciting projects around at the moment.

    Are you running 'sudo weston'? you need to run 'sudo bash' then just run weston, because sudo drops the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, which is needed for it to find the custom libraries.

    It only needs to be root if you are running it in a tty though. If you want to run it in a window in X, there should be an icon in the desktop folder for that.
