    But with Wayland you need a relatively modern graphics card that supports OpenGL and a device driver with support for KMS and hardware acceleration.
    No you don't. RPi runs Wayland right now, with software rendering (and IIRC it already runs better than X). Wayland is backend-agnostic, you can pretty much run it on anything if you just write a backend for it.

    Jesus christ you people are thick....


    WAYLAND DOES NOT HAVE A HARD-REQUIREMENT ON 3D GRAPHICS OR OPENGL. SOFTWARE RENDERING IS SUPPORTED AND WILL WORK JUST FINE.

    Depends....How much system memory ya got? And do you use X on that NOW? If i had one that old I would probably just use that at console mode and restrict it for like file serving..

    I have to take it that you are being sarcastic. I don't think anybody in there right minds would try to run wayland on such a card.

    I don't think anyone in their right mind would try to run modern X on such a card Lol hence why my reply was equally sarcastic :-P

    zram is used by default in live mode for Kanotix LinuxTag edition. Without 1 gb ram was not enough to surf longer with KDE edition and it lets you use LXDE even with 512 mb (or a bit less). Seemed to be stable enough.

    I've been using it for years, ever since it was compcache. Never failed for me.
