libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/i915_dri.so

You appear to either have the wrong libGL installed from an older release
of X.  The libGL included in Mesa in Fedora Core 5 and all later builds
loads the DRI drivers from %{_libdir}/dri directly, and does not load
them from /usr/X11R6.

The following should help you to find all libGL's installed on your system:

find / -name "libGL.*"

Uninstall or delete all of them, and reinstall the official Red Hat
mesa-libGL package from rawhide.  Once you have the correct libGL installed,
it will try to load the drivers from /usr/lib/dri

Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-08-04 01:03:39 EDT
Updating summary, this apparently has nothing to do with either graphical login
or compositing.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2006-09-20 17:51:26 EDT
Unable to repro with FC6t3 or later.  Reporter, after checking the instructions
from comment #2, please reopen if this is still an issue for you.
