Wayland in Raring

Purpose: compiling wayland in Ubuntu raring. And then install freerdp to compare performance against x11.


  • wayland compiled and installed
  • dependencies: mesa drm, mesa (in progress)
  • to be done: libxkbcommon, cairo-gl, libunwind

It seems that at the moment, it is not possible to make wayland running in ec2. So we can only make it run in a certain configuration. Now, stop playing with this during weekdays —> do it in weekend. Just for fun for now.

Alternative: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xvfb

or this: http://www.hep.phy.cam.ac.uk/vnc_docs/xvnc.html

with this (http://guac-dev.org/) as client

Basically, they are still using X, not wayland yet. But can be the way to be.
