DRI disabled (no 3D support) due to missing drm_XXX symbols

Description

Upgraded to virtualbox 3.0.0, have rebuilt the guest additions without any reported errors. However when I start X it has some issues with vboxvideo not finding some drm symbols, which apparently then kills accelerated 3D support. (or with Ogre3D, prevents demo apps from loading, with glGetString(GL_VERSION) returning NULL, yet glxgears will run, although only via Mesa...)

I should also add that I'm use Xubuntu and have everything up to date.

Works here with a fully updated Xubuntu 9.04. Did you do anything special to your guest kernel? Can you try updating the guest again?

I found that loading the drm module fixed the missing drm_* symbols issue for me. Not sure how you force modules to load on boot with Ubuntu, but try doing a manual 'modprobe drm' before you start X. Running 'depmod' might fix it as well since normally it should be able to figure out that vboxvideo depends on the drm module and load it automatically.

This can be closed, I no longer see the problem in new installations.
