I was working with the Intel Xorg driver today. I noticed a message in
the log about systemd-logind. With a little research and discussion
with Armin, I found that if I added --disable-systemd-logind to the
xorg-server configuration instructions, that message goes away.
The message is harmless, but should we add that option to xorg-server?
For the Intel driver, we removed the /etc/Xll/xorg.conf because glamor
is built into the xorg-server. That works, but I also have drivers for
vesa and fbdev. When Xorg starts, it tries these drivers first and
gives some warning/error messages.
If I add back /etc/Xll/xorg.conf with the simple contents of
# For options, see 'man intel'
it skips the other drivers and I get a clean Xorg.0.log. Is this worth
mentioning in the book?
I don't have an ATI video card, but we probably need to revisit the
section in Xorg Drivers labelled 'Glamor Acceleration'. The same can be
said for the Xorg Nouveau Driver, but I can test that.
