I tried to run gnome-wayland on Fedora 20 within VMware. First it
failed on Spurious X server exits.
So I added wlglamor and xf86-video-wayland drivers. But now it fails
in kernel with:
kernel: [drm:vmw_mmap] *ERROR* Illegal attempt to mmap old fifo space.

Then I have tried the same in ArchLinux and I am also stuck with the
same exception.
Then I have tried Weston with XWayland and this works inside VMware.
(Can run midori with correct rendering)

Does anybody have a clue what to do next?
