Hi, long time ago I saw an interesting project for weston, the spice
It is now abandoned because the developer has been involved in another
As no other has continued it, despite my low knowledge and time I would
try to update, test and possibly improve it.
I did a new branch with only 2 commit on top of latest upstream commit:
and I tried to do a fast rebase on latest upstream commit (1.10) instead
of master (development branch) for decrease the risk regression on first
Solving conflict about configure and makefile parts I have some doubts
(as also reported in the description of each commit):
About first commit (Add Spice compositor)
- in configure.ac some changes seems strange, including LIBS and CFLAGS
that seems "double"
- Makefile things seems fully changed, tried to adapt them and removed
src/spice/Makefile.am but I'm not sure if I did it correct.
About the second commit (Monitor renderer)
- Makefile things seems fully changed, tried to adapt them but I'm not
sure if I did it correct.
- Add -g to AM_CPPFLAGS in Makefile.am is really needed? not added for now
- add of "-Wl,--wrap=pixman_renderer_init" to LDFLAGS of many other
backend is really needed? not added for now, if needed is good
understand why to add it also to new things added since this start
commit done 3 years ago
- src/compositor-rdp.c changes is really needed? if not I'll remove them
I also searched documentation about api and/or internal weston functions
changed any versions but I not found them.
I suppose that after 3 years many things are changed, can someone tell
me if there are any docs that can help me to found/replace the
removed/changed functions please?
Any other advice that can help me is appreciated.
Thanks for any reply and sorry for my bad english.
