glx without dri causes crash
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
When starting the X server with glx, but without dri, you get:
X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so: undefined
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
This bug wasn't present in the previous version (1.0.1-something). Avoiding to
load DRI is desirable since it eats half of the available video memory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure Load "glx" is in the conf, but not Load "dri".
2. Try to start X server.
X server crashes.
Everything runs with GLX extension, but without direct rendering support.
Ah, good point, this is fixed in cvs head now. We'll pick it up when we build a
new snapshot. For now, add
Option "AIGLX" "0"
to your serverlayout section in xorg.conf to avoid the crash.
