Failure starting X/lxdm with glib 2.68.0

Reported by: Tim Tassonis Owned by: blfs-book
Priority: normal Milestone: 11.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


I just tried to upgrade my qemu virtual machine to glib 2.68.0, which lead to lxdm/X not starting anymore. /var/log/lxdm.log reports:

MESA-LOADER: failed to open bochs-drm: /opt/X11/lib/dri/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (search paths /opt/X11/lib/dri) failed to load driver: bochs-drm

The file /opt/X11/lib/dri/ really does not exist, but with older glib (2.66.8) this is no problem.

A downgrade to glib 2.66.8 does actually fix the problem, so glib 2.68.0 really seems to be the problem here. I will try to investigate further, but for the moment, I would advise people to stay away from glib 2.68.0, at least on qemu vm's running X.
