Thank you. The main difference I see is that you specify dri2. When
I try that it simply doesn't get loaded, complaining:
(WW) intel(0): DRI2 requires UXA
but if I try to force "AccelMethod" "UXA", X puts garbage on the
screen and hangs on start-up.
I tried just using your xorg.conf as is; firefox still cannot start.
I can run firefox4 on this machine by booting from a MythBuntu
"live CD". The resulting Xorg.0.log suggests that MythBuntu
has a much more recent X server:
X.Org X Server 1.10.1
Release Date: 2011-04-15
compared to my NetBSD 5 O/S:
X.Org X Server 1.6.3
Release Date: 2009-7-7
I do keep my machine updated; I can only surmise that NetNSD 5 stable
uses an oldish X server version. David, can you tell me what version
is reported in your Xorg.0.log ? Perhaps you'd be willing to send me
a copy of your Xorg.0.log so I could compare it to mine?
