I'm running wayland and using the ~amd64 repos.

I'm trying to get the Kitty Terminal to compile and it's throwing an error as i described in the issue i reported on github. The developer replied that "You need to compile glew with the EGL backend. By default it is compiled with the GLX backend.
And you will also need to compile glfw from master as the released version of glfw has a bug that causes duplicated key presses under wayland."

From what i can see there is no glew flag such as that. i do have mesa 17.2.3 installed (mesa is our opengl, right?) and i have the egl flag on.

Is there some eselect that i need to do to get opegl (er .. mesa?) to use egl and will this resolve the issue?

I'm confused by the mucurial and complicated state of graphics on Linux.

Thanks!

I think you'll need to emerge the live version of glew (=glew-9999) and check there.. I'll lend you a hand as soon as I get a system to test with

Ok so I tested KittyTerminal, it seems really snappy..

I'm using the following packages and it built like a breeze:
Code:
[IP-] [  ] media-libs/mesa-17.2.3:0
[IP-] [  ] media-libs/glfw-3.2.1:0
[IP-] [  ] media-libs/glew-2.1.0:0/2.1


Python was used through `python3.5` without eselecting it as default..
GCC is at version 7.2.0
