I compiled wayland according to the instructions at
And I built a kernel from the Nouveau kernel git repository.
Everything went well.

After trying to run the wayland-compositor I get this error:
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open nouveau (search paths
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, falling back to .
using socket ./wayland-0

I looked in the lib/dri/ folder and found a file named nouveau_vieux_dri.so
I tried to rename it to nouveau_dri.so, then I got this error:
wayland-compositor: nouveau_screen.c:124: nouveau_init_screen2:
Assertion `0' failed.

What am I missing here?

Regards, Bernard.
