Nobody thought eglstreams was a good idea or a solution, gbm fixed being able to use wayland at all, no devs were saying that would resolve all the issues. The issues are currently solved, you can test the changes yourself if you don't believe me, but this truly is the end

i'm not saying wait for the next release because they might solve it, I'm saying the current set of patches is confirmed to solve it.

Sorry, I won't test this myself because I'll never combine Nvidia with Linux for years to come but all the time it was promised that X11 fallback for Nvidia would no longer be needed and everytime it was followed up by countless bug reports that basic features aren't working.

That's the difference between some randos promising it and the devs extensively testing it and confirming it works universally.

[-] woelkchen@lemmy.world 1 points 1 month ago

Those randos were Nvidia developers and DE developers making such statements towards distribution maintainers after they asked if removing the automatic X11 fallback for Nvidia GPUs is fine.

It's always "one last feature / Nvidia workaround until it's fine". The same thing since years. Surely this time everything is different.

They were not. I'd need a source for that.
