It sounds like you don't have your video driver configured properly. What video card/driver are you using?

Try running: glxinfo

Hope that helps.

Unhappy

I just got the same errors after the latest round of updates. Worked fine prior. I am running Debian Testing.

The strange thing is it still shows that I have my card set up with the Nvidia driver I installed.

Some update must have broke the set up.....
