Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.

Leftovers: Software

  • Ekiga 5 – Progress Report
    Ekiga 5 has progressed a lot lately. OpenHUB is reportin a High Activity for the project. The main reason behind this is that I am again dedicating much of my spare time to the project. Unfortunately, we are again facing a lack of contributions. Most probably (among others) because the project has been silent during several years.
  • Calibre Gets a New Tool to Better Edit eBooks
    The Calibre eBook reader, editor, and library management software has been upgraded to version 2.17 and is now available for download. The developer has only implemented a couple of new features, but it's really worth the update if you are using this application to edit eBooks.
  • More Windows Apps and Games Now Work with Wine 1.7.35, EA's Origin Included
    Wine 1.7.35 has been released and the developers have made a number of improvements for some of the core components and they've added support for more apps and games.

Leftovers: Gaming

  • Dying Light Action Survival Game Coming to Steam January 27
    Dying Light, a modern first-person survival horror game set in a world hit by plague, is now available for pre-purchase on Steam and will be available for download on January 27.
  • Dying Light FPS Has Been Confirmed for Linux, Zombies Galore
    Techland is preparing to launch Dying Light, a new FPS with amazing graphics and hordes of zombies. The developer has revealed that it will also have a Linux version, right from the start.
  • Dying Light Is Now Confirmed For Linux, Bring It On Techland
    Dying Light is now confirmed for Linux thanks to the announcement from the developers on the Steam store itself. The Linux icons show up on the store pages, and the game even has a steam coming soon banner on the home-page. Time to get seriously excited.
  • Star Traders: 4X Empires Strategy Game Now On Linux
  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
