Hi all,
I'm newbie to wayland so please forgive my stupid questions if any.

I would like to run wayland on a set-top-box, but if I have correctly
understood the wayland FAQ, this won't be possible unless the kernel is
supporting the KMS and the DRM features Am I  wrong?

Assuming that my kernel doesn't support KMS/DRM, which is the case, and my
linux distribution doesn't provide EGL/GLES libs, is it possible to port
wayland on top of DirectFB ( since it provides a window
manager and handles input?

If it is possible then, both wayland client and wayland server should be
ported shouldn't they?

does it require a lot of effort ?
