Wayland and weston on Porteus instead of xserver

Post#1 by sabir » 24 May 2014, 16:02

Hi all!
Weston perfectly works on Porteus (tested on LXDE 32 bit), if you use GUI mode.

But in text mode it doesn't work :(
Of course I did this:

Code: Select all

root@porteus: groupadd weston-launch
root@porteus: usermod -a -G weston-launch guest
root@porteus: chown root /usr/bin/weston-launch
root@porteus: chmod +s /usr/bin/weston-launch
and this:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mkdir /tmp/wl0
guest@porteus:~$ chmod 0700 /tmp/wl0
guest@porteus:~$ export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp/wl0
guest@porteus:~$ weston-launch
Weston prints several error messages in one string (developers forgot about "\n" :crazy: )
How can I fix it? I mean I'd like to use wayland instead of xserver, just for fun of course :)

but still doesn't work. I mean X apps doesn't start:

Can you please tell how you achieved this? I'd like to try this for x86_64
I've tried to compile v1.5 from sources and got error that glesv2 is not installed while trying to compile weston.

I'm not sure I understand the part about "x apps", but isn't x applications are handled through compatibility layer "xwayland"? Or am I missed something?
Suggestions/corrections/additions are always welcome.
