Dear Xorg list,
I am trying to get Xgl running on my box with VIA card (a.k.a. via, unichrome,
openchrome). I am using drivers from openchrome.org project with pure Xorg
7.0 with no problems. I use the famous Hanno's ebuilds to build xgl & related
things, but do not succeed in getting Xgl running, getting basically error
message which is the subject of this message, exactly reproduced here:
X Window System Version 7.0.0

Fatal server error:

FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
I contacted the developers from openchrome.org and from Xorg.93.log they just
did not see anything strange and asked me to seek help on this list (btw. no
one has successfully tried Xgl with VIA card yet):
"can't see any obvious differences in the logfiles.
You might need to ask on the xgl list for debugging tips."
So I am here to ask what I can do to make Xgl work on VIA cards?
I found a tip on google - include this in /etc/drirc:
<device screen="0" driver="unichrome">
<option name="allow_large_textures" value="1" />
But it did not help.
Finally some concentrated info:
openchrome.org drivers (latest svn)
Hanno's ebuilds (Mesa, xgl, compiz from cvs; compiz with "svg" and "gnome"
DRI kernel modules from cvs
kernel 2.6.14 + gentoo patches
Any help is very appreciated.
