Description Darxus 2012-04-20 10:56:49 UTC
Maybe try to make remote wayland actually happen, to see if there is something in the protocol/architecute that makes it harder than it should be.

This was attempted unsuccessfully for a GSoC: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=OTgxMQ

Remote display of wayland using wcap: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/wayland-devel/2012-June/004026.html <nobled> question: if "values are represented in the host's byte-order," and it's going to be possible to run wayland remotely over a network, what happens if the compositor has opposite endianness from a client? <krh> nobled: which values? <nobled> just quoting http://wayland.freedesktop.org/docs/html/sect-Protocol-Wire-Format.html <krh> nobled: ah, we'll tunnel the wayland protocol in some kind of container protocol <krh> so we can have a endian/etc handshake at that level <krh> and use one channel for the wayland protocol and other channes for fd and buffer content <krh> one such protocol could be spdy, actually <nobled> well presumably fd passing is not going to be something you can do over a network socket... <nobled> so it's not a good idea to have a handshake or something in wayland itself? <krh> right, you need a proxy server that looks like a local wayland server, which then talks spdy (for example) over the internet to the remote server <krh> that server will read from fd's in the protocol and turn them into a spdy channel <krh> nobled: I don't think so

Initial prototype here: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~krh/weston/log/?h=remote-10 Not going to let this block 1.0 though, taking off blocker list.

Not really a core Wayland issue as such.
