Wayland EGL External Platform library
This is a work-in-progress implementation of a EGL External Platform library to add client-side Wayland support to EGL on top of EGLDevice and EGLStream families of extensions.
This library implements an EGL External Platform interface to work along with EGL drivers that support the external platform mechanism. More information about EGL External platforms and the interface can be found at:
Building and Installing the library
This library build-depends on:
Wayland libraries & protocols
EGL External Platform interface
To build, run:
To install, run:
You can also use meson build system to build and install:
meson builddir cd builddir ninja ninja install
The NVIDIA EGL driver uses a JSON-based loader to load all EGL External platforms available on the system.
If this library is not installed as part of a NVIDIA driver installation, a JSON configuration file must be manually added in order to make the library work with the NVIDIA driver.
The default EGL External platform JSON configuration directory is:
Thanks to James Jones for the original implementation of the Wayland EGL platform.
