Created attachment 211772 [details]

Same as ports r526006. The option can be enabled by default as it doesn't conflict with default (GBM) case.
Comment 1 Warner Losh freebsd_committer 2020-02-20 18:10:09 UTC
Have you confirmed no regression at runtime in a quick smoke test?
Comment 2 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-02-20 18:48:25 UTC
That's what comment 0 tried to say by "don't conflict". I usually dogfood xwayland-devel but non-devel port also works fine with NVIDIA port option enabled on AMD/Intel GPUs.

  x11-servers/xwayland: expose x11/nvidia-driver support

  Disabled for now as runtime wasn't tested. EGLStreams is supported by
  x11-wm/mutter and x11-wm/plasma5-kwin.

Comment 5 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-04-17 19:12:16 UTC
"runtime wasn't tested" in comment 4 was taken verbatim from ports r526006. wlroots-based compositors don't support NVIDIA except via nouveau.

In bug 244016 comment 1 there's hope Kwin may bring Wayland to NVIDIA users.
