Thanks a lot Adam, that gave me a lot of info. For one, I had no drirc
but when I did I got this:
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/i965_dri.so
libGL error: failed to open drm device: Permission denied
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so
so it seems like I don't have the right to use drm. With:
sudo glxinfo|grep renderer
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) G45/G43 GEM 20080716 x86/MMX/SSE2
everything looks fine. But:
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
What should I do to allow my user to do that? I run startx as user "vdr"
and have /usr/bin/Xorg set suid root. I also have
"allowed_users=anybody" in Xwrapper.config.
I also noticed this:
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
Screen 0: not direct rendering capable.
That's not right is it? Is that because it's dri2 capable? And where can
I find information about the drirc file?
