You're requesting a window with an alpha channel in the framebuffer, but
the output of glxinfo indicates that your display doesn't support that
(all values under "colorbuffer a" are 0).
Generally, you don't actually need alpha in the framebuffer. It's only
necessary for things like blending with a GL_DST_ALPHA function, or
reading back the alpha values of a rendered image. It's not needed for
the more common GL_SRC_ALPHA-based blending.
Try removing the "| GL_ALPHA" from your InitDisplayMode command.
