How to enable wayland support for new nvidia driver

I just installed Nvidia's latest driver. NVIDIA 390.12. According to the changelong it has libnvidia-egl-wayland and I can actually see the file when I extract from the installer. Previously it wasn't enabled. However GNOME is still logging into X11 automatically. Do I need to place the new lib somewhere for it to work? I would really love to try wayland with nvidia now.

I still get this when I try to start wayland manually with:

dbus-run-session -- gnome-shell --display-server --wayland

(gnome-shell:5150): mutter-WARNING **: Cant initialize KMS backend: Could not get session ID: No such file or directory

I haven't seen any discussion about getting it working yet probably because it's really new (Jan 4th)

I can confirm this issue. Similar output here. Any update?
