Default Re: Beta driver: Beryl crashes in

I think glxinfo has to be built from the Mesa sources now, however, I have never seen a Mesa source tarball containing the code for glxinfo.
It is in graphics/mesa-demos, but it doen't install it at the moment, I shall have a look tonight or maybe tomorrow.

Also, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent to xorg-fonts-encodings-6.9.0_1 in the modular Xorg, so my ports always require it to be installed, which probably shouldn't be the case. Also, I think either xorg-apps or xorg-complete should have xterm as a dependency, since it doesn't seem to get installed after installing xorg-complete.
You can report those problems to me. I'm aware of the nvidia-driver port issue, but that's part of the polishing I'm trying to delay as much as possible. For the encodings port, I've added it yesterday, so this isn't a problem anymore. I'm working on the xorg-fonts-* ports atm, so hopefully they won't be a problem anymore. I wondered about adding xterm to the list of runtime dependencies, but that's not a xorg application.

Yeah, same here, no problem. You should post your messages to, and I should subscribed to this list ;-)
