Has anyone managed to get a pure Wayland system running? I tried with global useflags of "-X xwayland wayland" and ran into a fairly large number of errors on an ~amd64 system. It seems "sway" is fairly stable and well supported, but perhaps X is still needed.

Anyone running Wayland have any recommendations besides Arch Wiki? I also was unable to locate the "Wayland overlay" which was alluded to elsewhere on the forums.

Thanks in advanced.
