2010/11/16 Rawhide Report:
> New package: wayland-0.1-0.1.20101111.fc15

Wayland can be tried on Fedora 14 successfully by rebuilding packages
- libdrm-2.4.23-0.1.20101108.fc15
- libxkbcommon-0.1.0-1.20101110.fc15
- mesa-7.10-0.10.fc15
- wayland-0.1-0.1.20101111.fc15

In order to be able to run the clients, one also needs to rebuild
cairo-1.10.0-3.fc14 with build option "--enable-gl". cairo.spec needs
additional entries




in order to allow rpmbuild to complete compilation. After installing
the new packages, build the clients in the local wayland tree
retrieved with git. Note that 70-wayland.rules should be copied to
/etc/udev/rules.d instead of /etc/udev where it gets installed by
package wayland-0.1-0.1.20101111.fc15.

$ compositor -b /usr/share/backgrounds/laughlin/default/standard/laughlin.png &
$ dnd

Contrary to the outcome of the build procedure outlined at
http://wayland.freedesktop.org/building.html, I do encounter frequent
segmentation faults which may be due to using more recent versions of
mesa and/or cairo by cloning the current git trees.

Unfortunately, I am only able to run wayland on top of a running GNOME
desktop. When launching it outside of X (kms, ATI Radeon X800),
wayland starts up but the screen is filled with a garbled version of
the background bitmap - no pointer, no reaction to mouse input.
