Hello world :-)

I have managed to finally build the EFL and E with Wayland + DRM

implementation of all compositors is probably based on (ekhm) SystemD
and at least needs LoginD as most of the Compositors do.

Is there any chance that LoginD could run on FreeBSD? Do we have
anything better instead?

According to E main developer @raster such LoginD can run in userland
but also handles VT switching, input, and fd() arbitration (for device

Best regards :-)
