Help to fix errors in kdm.log

I’ve discovered that /var/log/kdm.log is reporting some errors:

(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "freetype" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/ failed (/usr/lib/dri/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
Driver not XRANDR 1.2 capable, ignoring DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_* settings

Can you help to fix them ?

What video driver are you using?

My gfx board is a Matrox G400DH.
Kernel driver: matrox_w1
Driver: matrox_w1
Peripheral: MGP G400 AGP

I suspect that the error is exactly what it says. Your driver does not support the requirements of XRANDR thus XRANDR can not be used.

From what I found on the web, it seems the Mesa development team is no more supporting the driver. No more 3d hardware acceleration for Matrox boards. :frowning:

Regarding the “type1” and “freetype” errors: I had these because the related packages were not re-installed after recovering from a big crash.
To remove the error entries, I edited xorg.conf and removed the lines

Load "type1"
Load "freetype"

from the “Module” section.

As for the missing error, it did not really matter as redering then fall back to software rendering.
A trick to remove the error is to remove

Load "dri"

and/or add

Disable "dri"

in the “Module” section.

Anyway, is now back in Mesa for openSUSE 11.3 (you have to install the latest Mesa package from the Factory repository). :slight_smile:
