Question Xorg/GDM - Errors+Warnings(SW 12.2)


I updated to 12.2 a few days ago...so far compared to 12.1, I have the same errors and warnings in xorg, but this time in 12.2--xorg and gdm logs came up with new errors and warnings. Although I haven't yet witnessed any crashes or visual effects, and I don't think it'll affect the system(i hope)...But to be specific, thunar did however freeze on me a few times because during that time I was moving 120mb of files into the gimp directory hehe. I had to kill the process but no biggy. As for the xorg and gdm logs, I'm a bit worried on that part and I hope it won't affect my system. Aside from that everything is running perfectly.

Anyway, I'm currently googling and looking everywhere to find answers about all these warning and errors...I can't seem to find a definite answer but maybe you guys can. Here's my 12.1 xorg log:

FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
The thng is, I haven't witnessed any crashes or anything. Should I just ignore these errors and warnings?

Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf in a text editor. Search for the following:

FontPath

In that list of fonts you'll notice two file paths mentioned in your xorg.0.log:

(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/local/" does not exist.
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/CID/" does not exist.

Place a hash mark (#) at the beginning of those two lines. Save the file. That will eliminate those warning errors.

Regarding the (WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual warning messages:

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf, search for the following:

Section "ServerLayout"

In that section add the following:

Option "AIGLX" "false"

Save the file. That will eliminate those warning messages.

Ensure you have the following in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "DRI"
Group "video"
Mode 0666
EndSection

Thanks, that seem to got rid of the font warnings and AIGLX warnings. As for DRI, I followed this tutorial in the past to load glx and dri. Both are running fine according to glxgears and glxinfo...direct rendering is in fact enabled.

Just in case, my xorg config file here at pastebin:
Code:
http://pastebin.com/f4a2bca98
And for all the warnings and errors specified above, I found out that a lot of ubuntu users are having the same warnings and errors. As for DSPARB I found out that it has something to do with xf86-video-intel drivers. From what I've read recently, the above logs looks like it's been filed as part of a bug for xf86-video-intel drivers. I'm stil randomly searching and reading to see what I can find...Anyway, I guess as long as my system is stable and not crashing, I think it's ok to safely ignore this, for now--until I can fix a fix :\
