What version of media-libs/mesa is installed on your PC?

Also, Googling your error message throws up a few suggestions, such as the work-around:

Code: Select all

which you could try.

You could also try editing the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and changing the video driver to vesa if it is not already that.
