I only try to give suggestions, but I believe in waves- everything you give will come back once - maybe not on the direct way, but it will.
An if it's only for the feeling you are not alone......
so going into next round:
so I assume you can not get a proper result from
glxinfo | grep dir
so try following
DISPLAY=:0.0 glxinfo |grep dir
this should give you following result
direct rendering: Yes
if this is the case then your rendering is ok
also add module "dri" into xorg.conf
another question would be whether you can control the MD from another room Orbiter
and see whether you can startup TV or a video?
please check /etc/pluto/lastaudiovideo.conf
on one of my MD's I had to manually add
Please also check / compare
/var/log/pluto/xx_Launchorbiter.sh.log where xx is the device #
make sure Photo screensaver is really not starting
You should find the Orbiter also in the /var/log/pluto/running.pids
If something is not starting as it should check the
if the device # of the not starting device is already in.
if so _ edit the file and delete the device numer
and restart the MD
Hope these things help to find the problem
