[Dev] Common/Generic profile images usability

Hi Roman,

If you're interested, I used to keep some 'recipes' on how to run Tizen IVI 2.0 (based on X) under VMware, it's described here: https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/IVI/IVI_2.0_VMware. Back then, I had to provide the xorg-x11-drv-vmware driver (as you have pointed out below) and I also had to modify some of the build options used for mesa and libdrm. Feel free to take a look there if you want to get that working but as pointed out by Dominique, we are not focused on X in Tizen 3.0 so I'm not sure where this would lead you to.

A more interesting path would be to get the Wayland image running on VMware. I have quickly looked at the kernel used in Common and the vmwgfx driver is built as a module which means we could be hitting https://bugs.tizen.org/jira/browse/TIVI-2964. I'll see if I can run a quick test on my side to validate this. If that's the problem, you could try to turn security off (add 'security=none' at the kernel command-line) or rebuild the kernel with the 'vmwgfx' driver built-in.

Just to update the Xorg image won't work either, there is only one driver included in the image for Xorg and that's the intel_drv.so (bit selfish i think) no fbdev or vmware drivers are present so Xorg will never start.
Also i can't any service in systemctl that could be some sort of a windows manager.

best regards

I got the images running before (the IVI profile) on VMware, so VMware itself is not an issue.
My question was really, SHOULD I see something in the image, is there a UI in the common profile at all or is this a bare bones sort of OS image that contains no UI experience at all.
When booting Tizen Common you should have a  test UX (basic Weston) with several user pre-logged on the system.
The background show the sea and several islands.

My question about Xorg is still not answered, what is the UI for Xorg i should expec t to find in the common image (is there some sort of default WM that should launch?)
We currently do not build a Tizen Common for X but only Wayland 32 and 64 nits for IA and 32 bits for ARM (work in progress)
If someone is interested to take the responsibility of building and maintain X Common images, thanks to speak up.
