Don't works with 367.44:
weston --use-egldevice

Fatal: failed to create compositor backendci0000:00/0000:00:09.0/

I finally got it to work. It was because I had sync to Vblank disabled with an environment variable. The setting was this.


After changing it to 1, it works. Awesome! Too bad Wayland doesn't have full OpenGL support or else I could be playing Quake right now. Thank you for making and updating this package aplattner.

I may have found out why I'm black screening. Here is the full weston log. I launched weston with the following command, "weston-launch -- --use-egldevice".

The issue seems to be at the very end of the log with this message:

[09:21:53.767] destroy output while page flip pending

I just tried "weston-launch -- --use-egldevice", and it black screens just like when I used "weston --use-egldevice". I took a picture on my phone of the complete error message when I use "weston-launch" without the "--use-egldevice" command. I'll post it later today. I followed the development forum post so I don't know why it isn't working. I have the latest beta 367 beta driver as well.

For weston-launch, you have to use " -- " to pass extra arguments to the compositor. So you'd run

weston-launch -- --use-egldevice

I'm not sure why you'd get a black screen, though. Can you please upload the complete output of weston-launch and an nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file somewhere?

I still can't get wayland/weston to run with the nvidia propietary drivers. When I execute "weston-launch", I get these errors.

failed to initialize egl
fatal: failed to create compositor backend

When I execute "weston --use-egl-device", I get a black screen. There is no color noise this time, just a black screen.

Actually, rebasing wasn't has hard as I expected. Done.

aplattner commented on 2016-06-06 22:25

The patches don't apply cleanly to 1.11, so I'll see if I can get Miguel to rebase them. Otherwise, I'll take a look this week.

I would really like to see if the release of weston 1.11 allows me to use the nvidia propietary dirver with wayland. I would get a screen of color noise when I launched weston with "weston --use-egldevice". Using "weston-launch" doesn't work either. I followed the directions from the nvidia dev post, and it still isn't working.

Did you load nvidia-drm with the "modeset=1" parameter? Please be sure to follow the instructions from Andy's post on the devtalk forum:
