DRI2 Driver For Mesa EGL In The Works
Phoronix: DRI2 Driver For Mesa EGL In The Works
Kristian Høgsberg, the mastermind behind DRI2 and the one behind the Wayland Display Server, has a new announcement and that's a DRI2 driver for the new Mesa EGL implementation. Kristian's work interfaces EGL with DRI2 and is described as a "nice, self-contained implementation." Kristian has aspirations to add support for EGL with a DRI2 driver on the KMS frame-buffer, which could be used in the Wayland world. Kristian previously wrote the Eagle EGL stack as part of his work on Wayland, but those Eagle-specific bits have been dropped after Gallium3D received a new EGL state tracker and Kristian has merged some Eagle bits with Mesa. Kristian's announcement concerning this DRI2 driver for EGL can be read on mesa3d-dev...
Wayland World! Wayland World! Party time! Excellent!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
who here is starting to think that wayland isn't just "for fun, nothing serious"?
it looks like one day it might, might, become a viable alternative.
and is it "meh suh" or "may sah"?
I've always said/thought it as 'may sah', as that's how the geological feature is pronounced.
