    glxinfo


    I have the following problem,
    i'm using Slackware 11.0,after run the kdm (in the boot script) i can log in normally but from the first time the glxinfo gives me no direct rendering and libGL error: open DRM failed (Operation not permitted)
    libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering

    but if i log out and log in again everything works fine all the games and the application that need direct rendering.
    i want that to be active from the first log in !
    i have the line
    Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
    EndSection
    under the xorg.conf so what is the problem ?

    Section "DRI"
    Group 0
    Mode 0666
    EndSection

    How are you booting your system? To runlevel 3 or runlevel 4?

    If 3, how are you starting X?

    There has to be a reason why you have to log in twice to get x working properly. It's a process of elimination.

    it's the runlevel 3, but i edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.M to enter a line that allow me to run another one (called rc.kdm) to enter to kde desktop manager,but probably the problem is the following when the system boot the first time to X server i can't run a direct rendering,and when i log out the X server receive a signal from a normal user to refresh whit the normal permissions not that is in my script,probably i have to add the following
    ./etc/rc.d/rc.kdm -nodaemon i'll try and inform you later.

    Just to close this thread (i found it by hazard)

    the solution is .

    usermod -g video aliov.
    Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.
