Hi, I'm trying (again) nouveau driver. I'm using nouveau overlay[1].
With a single X session everything is OK, very good 2D performance.
But when the other user in this box toggles startx -- :1 :

Code:

drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is 9, (OK)
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is 9, (OK)
drmOpenByBusid: Searching for BusID pci:0000:02:00.0
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is 9, (OK)
drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns 9
drmOpenByBusid: drmGetBusid reports pci:0000:02:00.0
(II) [drm] DRM interface version 1.0
(EE) [drm] Could not set DRM device bus ID.
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed.  Disabling DRI.

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0


Are we limited to only one X session at a time when using nouveau driver?

Thanks in advance.

------------------------------------
[1] media-libs/mesa from the overlay doesn't build here, but I don't care for 3D acceleration, so I've installed nouveau's drm and kernel driver manually.

If someone was having that problem and didn't noticed, it's currently fixed. Here both users can run X session using nouveau driver. Bye binary blob!
