It is well known that Enlightenment/EFL is pretty awful. But I had to build it on my FreeBSD box since I’m testing a LuaJIT update and EFL does include LuaJIT support. So while I’m at it, I decided to add Wayland support to the port.
So at least it works, but its behavior is indeed kinda funny. Running their terminal with GL acceleration (
ELM_DISPLAY=wl ELM_ACCEL=opengl terminology) actually does work. Running it without acceleration (
ELM_DISPLAY=wl ELM_ACCEL=no terminology) results in the surface not showing up and… this message:
DRM_IOCTL_I915_GEM_APERTURE failed: Invalid argument Assuming 131072kB available aperture size. May lead to reduced performance or incorrect rendering. get chip id failed: -1  param: 4, val: 0
It’s no “SPANK! SPANK! SPANK!” but how exactly did it decide to use an Intel GPU related system call? On my machine that has a Radeon card?!?! When I asked for software rendering??
