It works using the x11-compositor (ie wayland inside an X window) and
software emulation of egl by mesa. It's slow but so far the best I have
gotten (noeveau was faster but it has always had this bug with xcb_poll
that made x11-compositor run with extreme lag, and new versions it is
getting the stride of the egl buffers wrong thus producing unusable
I am having zero luck getting "real" wayland running outside of X. It
just locks up my machine with garbage on one screen.

Don't make this worse. I certainly understand where he is coming from,
and if I really was just trying to make nvidia work I can understand the
I believe I have found a bug that should be fixed that will effect
everybody who wants to run both Xorg and Wayland with X clients on the
same machine, and I was annoyed that it was confused with attempts to
make nvidia work.
(the bug is that if /etc/X11/xorg.conf exists the wayland xserver always
reads it. I submitted a patch so that $PREFIX/etc/X11/xorg.conf takes
precedence. Though now I realize this is not sufficient since it will
not fix a system installation of wayland. Perhaps a better approach is
to fix xwayland to not need any config file, certainly it should be able
to figure out everything it needs from the wayland server).
