Description Sean Middleditch 2010-09-12 22:10:28 EDT
I can only get software rendering, used to get hardware rendering in Fedora 13.  HD4770 (rv740).  No idea if udev is responsible or not, maybe it's PAM or ConsoleKit or who knows what; the explosion in complexity of the Linux init system in the last few years, with its umpteen different daemons and packages doing tons of overlapping work, with their menagerie of wildly different home-grown config file formats, and not a single top-down document explaining the whole mess has made it close to impossible for me to figure out who does what when and where during boot-up.  So if you need more information, please just ask, because I have no clue what else might be relevant.

And just to confirm, if I chmod the access to /dev/dri and /dev/dri/card0 to give my user access, glxinfo reports the correct output and I get hardware accelerated rendering as I'd expect.

only after chmod'ing /dev/dri and /dev/dri/card0:
