Hi All,

I've just submitted a pkg review request for libglvnd:


This is the last building block needed to allow full
parallel installation of the nvidia binary driver and
nouveau / mesa, without needing various *.conf.d to
select the right libGL.so / Xserver glx module, etc.

With this in place the entire Xorg / GL stack will
automatically do the right thing depending on which
kernel driver (nouveau or nvidia) is loaded, which
means that things will no longer break if the kernel /
userspace config do not match (as there is no more
userspace config), also see:
This is already in fedora since few months already.

Ah, I did not know that, that is great.

I plan to do a Fedora 25 update enabling
glvnd in mesa coming monday. I will also update
libglvnd to match and make it be the provider
of libGL.so.1, etc.

When I'm done I'll put both of them in a single bodhi update.

I've requested co-maintainer rights for libglvnd if
you can grant those, that would be great.

Also you can note this is supported by the RPM Fusion community, based
on your work:

BTW, I've haven't received any answear back about modsetting conflicts
with nvidia.

This is fixed by this commit:


Which is in the Fedora xorg-x11-server-1.19.0-3.fc25 (and newer)

I think modesetting should disable any accel (glamor,exa) as soon a
the nvidia glx is loaded. And not to rely on any specific
configuration file about that (that will need to be enaled/disabled
back and forth if the driver switch is implemented between
FOSS/proprietary driver).

That is not necessary, with the above fix everything should just work.
