<antrik> Wayland should be very portable. all the system dependencies are in the infrastructure, such as DRI <antrik> we have had a DRI task (for X.Org) for years <antrik> (in fact I would be the right person to implement this, considering my background -- by quite frankly, I doubt I'll ever do it) <tschwinge> http://xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki/Hurd_Porting

<youlysses> Is wayland something that will be semi-easy to port to the hurd? I saw GNOME is heading in this direction. <pinotree> wayland at the moment is linux only <tschwinge> youlysses: A DRI implementation will be needed. <pinotree> that, and libdrm compiling <youlysses> So it will take some work ... but theres no *HUGE* design decison that would inhibit it? <pinotree> i know it uses epoll, for instance <tschwinge> youlysses: I cannot judge how complex a DRI system is, and how much needs to be designed vs. implemented.
