It seems renouveau doesn't cope well with missing GLX extension, unlike
e.g. glxgears:

rmh at cesc:~/renouveau$ glxgears
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
rmh at cesc:~/renouveau$ ./renouveau
detect_devices: Creating probe window failed.
We tried to create a window by using SDL.
Our OpenGL tests require a stencil buffer whichusually
is not available with 16-bit desktop colordepth. If you are
using 16-bit colors, please try24-bit instead.
Device detection failed.

Sorry for not providing a patch, but I'm quite novice at X programming and
run out of time.  Hope that helps anyway.
