    Default It's Now Easier Running Wayland Under GNOME-Session

    Phoronix: It's Now Easier Running Wayland Under GNOME-Session

    With another day comes more improvements to the Linux desktop running atop Wayland. While yesterday saw Enlightenment on Wayland work, today already is some GNOME Wayland activity ahead of the GNOME 3.10 release in just a few weeks time...

    Too bad Ubuntu and Debian repositories carries old version of Wayland.

    So on what does GDM run?
    Does GDM run on X, then you select the Wayland session, then you run both X and Wayland?
    Or does GDM run on Wayland?
    Or does GDM run on X then X exits and Wayland starts?
    Or GDM runs on framebuffer or something independent of both X and Wayland?

    Only that nobody that wants to use a LTS will go for Fedora.

    This is a great question.
    I think that GDM might run on Wayland, and if you choose an X session Wayland exits and X starts... but then GDM would have to restart...
    Hmm :/

    So if I install Fedora 20 RC1 on an external HD and opt-in to Fedora Rawhide will I get this update over night?

    Would love to see more Youtube videos showing this sort of progress. If you search for Wayland on Youtube you tend to get fairly old stuff.

    I'm not sure, but it might work on gnome-shell.
    /usr/share/gdm/greeter/applications/gnome-shell.desktop:
    Exec=gnome-shell --mode=gdm

    According to https://wiki.gnome.org/Wayland/gdm , it looks like at first GDM will run under X server which after login is reset and left running in the background for later use.

    X Wayland should be automatically loaded when WMs, not DMs are chosen in GDM menu. I other choises option for X and Wayland shoud be prompted. GDM shoud be rewrited for framebuffer mode, which is often running after an early start within boot process. Next switches to X or Wayland will be simple then.
