"KeyError: 'Debug'" failures appear to be a race condition (on 'slower' machines); rebuild until it goes away (unless you can track it down :D).

The release schedule is based on the ozone-wayland project's releases, *not* Chromium's releases, mostly because it takes ages to build and I'd rather have something that does work...

EDIT: I've disowned the package since I'm not updating it (no recent upstream release so the version is fairly ancient, and it doesn't look like there will be a release as all the work is going into upstreaming it into chromium).

It looks like they are pretty close. They are developing in a fork: https://github.com/Igalia/chromium

There is a README with build instructions. Trying it out..

Chromium on wayland based on Intel's ozone-wayland project is dead because it doesn't allign with the future architecture direction Chromium is taking, so ozone-wayland will never be merged.

The good news is that upstream Chromium development is continuing using bits and pieces from ozone-wayland and they're making progress (it's still is not finished).

@YAOMTC: I'm not planning on doing a new release any time soon, especially since the version used here is ancient, but you should be able to fix the that build issue by either downgrading CUPS or applying the patch from https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/29c1262dbd4f749dd514d05a571cdd809ba8cfe0%5E%21/#F0.

Hopefully upstreaming continues!

Well, I tried building this, but when I wasn't running into the "KeyError: 'Debug'" failure, it was "ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed". http://paste2.org/n0MgsO5A

I might just wait for Chromium to get Wayland support, which looks like it shouldn't be too long...

Great news: An important chunk of ozone-wayland has been merged in Chromium mainline last week [1]. The remaining work on review has been rebased and is waiting review.

Hopefully in the not too distant future we can run chromium mainline with both x11 and wayland at the same time and not be stuck on an older version using the ozone-wayland repo.

@pypi Thanks for the info! It's really cool that they're upstreaming right this moment. I wonder if I take those two large diffs on review and apply them on chromium-dev how would it work...

@adirat: Said article was also wrong :)
Upstreaming is still ongoing, see https://codereview.chromium.org/2027943002/#ps60001, https://github.com/01org/ozone-wayland/issues/462

The work going into chromium mentioned in the article came from a different source, *not* the ozone-wayland project, which had not got anything upstreamed; there are multiple people working on this!

AFAIK ozone-wayland was merged into mainline chromium starting with v50 and now the project is dead. This is why it has no releases anymore and is stuck at v48.

@wind0204: Glad you got it working!
It is rather buggy; see https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1505459#p1505459 for an out of date list of bugs that we had found, and https://github.com/01org/ozone-wayland/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue.
The project itself appears to be lacking in manpower, which is probably the core issue.

I guess upgrading ninja from 1.6.0-2 to 1.7.1-1 did the job, or less likely changing march value to native and removing mtune clause in /etc/makepkg.conf

anyways, it's too buggy! how come it has got so many bugs in the very basic features? is it just me?
