Just a quick update.

It looks like the XBMC startup script tries to detect direct rendering
by grepping the glxinfo file.  (Direct rendering is required in order
for XBMC to work.)  So the exact command it issues is 'glxinfo | grep
"direct rendering"' in XBMC's FEY.py script.  This won't output
anything in Slackware 13.0 as glxinfo is now a symlink to glinfo,
which doesn't have that particular string.  Looking at the Mesa
slackbuild for the mesa package, glxinfo was one of the intentional
files left out as it is now deprecated, however, it is compiled by

So, XBMC probably wouldn't be a good candidate for slackbuilds.org
unless there is a patch to remedy direct rendering detection.
