I've also soon learned from another user that Glamor EGL for intel is  
broken and doesn't work and SNA is to be used and is default.

Someone needs to clear some things up so users aren't getting  
confused. I don't use any intel video devices with Xorg, so I don' t  
The problem is, someone builds all the packages in Xorg thinking they  
don' tneed glamor egl, then they end up needing it and go back and  
have to rebuild all of the packages having glamor enabled, and then  
realize it's broken and they should have used sna by default.

That's what I'm relaying.
