Description Nicu Borta 2024-04-06 07:16:27 UTC
qemu-system-x86_64 doesn't actually link against when built with this flag, and virtual/opengl pulls in a lot of X11 packages which is not ideal on Wayland.

USE=opengl is actually needed on Wayland for the virgl renderer.

8.2.1 and 8.2.2 build successfully and are perfectly functional without virtual/opengl.

Thus, we could either:

1) replace the virtual/opengl dependency with media-libs/libglvnd
(Theoretically, this is not needed, as the qemu binaries are not directly linked to any libraries provided by libglvnd either)

2) remove the virtual/opengl dependency entirely
