Description Peter Hjalmarsson 2010-11-20 12:13:09 UTC
Description of problem:
Since I upgraded to rawhide from Fedora14 I have had the following problem:

[xake@ferra ~]$ ls -ld /dev/dri
drwxr-x---. 2 root root 80 20 nov  2010 /dev/dri

This prevents me from using anything DDRI on my ATI Radeon x1600 system, since nothing run as non-root can access this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ yum list installed | grep mesa
mesa-dri-drivers.i686                    7.10-0.11.fc15                 @rawhide
mesa-dri-drivers.x86_64                  7.10-0.11.fc15                 @rawhide
I guess this is the components that are interesting since they hold the drivers

How reproducible:
Have tried two upgrades on two computers (Intel i945, ATI x1600), and both had this problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 14
2. Enable Rawhide repos
3. "yum upgrade" (or let package kit handle)
4. reboot
Actual results:
$ glxinfo | grep renderer
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe

Expected results:
$ glxinfo | grep renderer
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV530

Additional info:
If I "chmod a+rX /dev/dri" everything starts to work until next reboot.
