Wayland - hot plug support

I'm currently messing around with my eGPU setup and have noticed that the Wayland community needs some hardware donations to be able to support hot plug features without having to restart the session.


Support GPU hotplug #1278:

Hardware donations #171:


I survived my first two weeks of college ^^ and plan to support the project as soon as I have a job. It would be amazing if someone here has hardware left that can be donated or is able to donate/support in any other way.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Thanks for bringing attention to this. I don't have any extra hardware, but I'll throw a couple of bucks their way for multi-GPU and GPU hotplug. Sway seems to be where it's at for Wayland development.
