for some reason, im not able to use direct rendering on my kyro2 without root privileges. When logging in as a normal user, glxinfo says Im not using direct rendering, and the framerate printed by glxgears is rather low (~50). As soon as I switch to root using "su" direct rendering seems to work though.
According to the output provided by an "strace glxgears", the program cant access the device nodes in /dev/dri/, despite the fact that the permissions are set correctly, and I added the DRI section with mode 0666 in my XF86Config file.
I'd be glad if someone could help me out there.
