Re: AIGLX error: i915 does not export required DRI extension


Just doing a bit of testing of NetBSD 6.0_RC2 on an Intel desktop with
I915 graphics.

Same problem here. The point is that those cards used to work with
older versions of the intel driver, but it has been upgraded whereas
we *don't* have KMS/GEM.
My good old Samsung NC10 is not capable of rendering 3D anymore.

My question is: is there any kind of advantage to have latest intel
driver if it is to break DRI/DRM which was perfectly working...

So yes, IMHO, this is worth a PR.

I guess that you and Dave hit the same problem as the one reported and
analyzed in:

AFAIU, this is not due to an upgrade of the intel driver, but it's
rather due to an upgrade of Mesa.


p.s. I had similar messages with my Intel-only drm/gem port [1].
After adding glxdri2 to the build, AIGLX is happier:

[   297.325] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer
[   297.325] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_INTEL_swap_event
[   297.325] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_SGI_make_current_read
[ 297.325] (II) AIGLX: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap backed by buffer objects [ 297.325] (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/X11R7/lib/modules/dri/
[   297.325] (II) GLX: Initialized DRI2 GL provider for screen 0

I've not seen much difference with glxgears, though.  The only plus
is that compiz now works.
