Post glxinfo returns "unable to open display" on VirtualBox 6.0.10 after full clean install of slackware 14.2


So for a project I want to create a slackware image that can be used on VMs and actual hardware to run specific software. Due to legacy, I started on slackware 14.1, where I managed to create a single image that can be used on both VMs and actual hardware. So I thought: "lets do the exact same thing, but now for 14.2".

Unfortunately, this didn't work. After some debugging, I've narrowed the issue down to glxinfo (or basically any glx* program) not running with the following error:

Code:
# glxinfo 
Error: unable to open display
# export DISPLAY=:0.0
# glxinfo
Error: unable to open display :0.0
I have executed a full install of slackware 14.2 and immediately afterwards executed the above commands. I've tried looking for logging, but no idea where to find it. I searched the forums as well as the internet, but nothing seems to work:

Can't run glxinfo as root
Code:
useradd -u 1000 -g users -m user
Logged in with user, same result. Note that from here onwards, I always executed the glxinfo test using the created user!

Something related to Xforwarding
As far as I understand, I don't use this at all. I start the VM, and run the commands in the VM itself (although I do connect via SSH for diagnostics, but I don't see how that is relevant).

Some networking issues
I think I understand that "DISPLAY=" defines where X11 can find "the display" and that network configuration issues might mess that up. I base this assumption on I this topic that hinted towards some networking issues. So for sake of completion here is my networking configuration:

# cat /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf:
Code:
# Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]="192.168.10.250"
NETMASK[0]="255.255.255.0"
USE_DHCP[0]="no"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

... removed rest because its all blank defaults...
# cat /etc/hosts:

The topic talked about a file called /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf but since this topic originates from Arch Linux, I'm guessing that it is a different file:

# cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
Code:
# /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
#
# See additional config files (such as for DHCP settings) in ./conf.d

[main]
plugins=keyfile
I added the entry as suggested in the above post, resulting in

# cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
Code:
# /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
#
# See additional config files (such as for DHCP settings) in ./conf.d

[main]
plugins=keyfile

[keyfile]
hostname = generic
But that also didn't resolve the issue.

Something wrong with mesa
Some posts point out that there could be a wrong version of mesa installed, or that dependencies might be missing, but I find that hard to believe as I used only the slackware DVD iso, which I would expect to be working out of the box?

Additional stuff
There is no xorg log file generated when running glxinfo so I don't have that. But some other checks I've seen others do (no idea if these are valuable in this context, but there is no such thing as too much info

# lspci | grep VGA
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: VMware SVGA II Adapter
Note: as I noticed the formatting is seemingly the same, I did a quick check on running glxinfo using DISPLAY=00:02.0 and DISPLAY=:02.0 but no luck there either

The original scenario where I bumped into the issue was when starting the software that actually uses glx. In that scenario, I got the following logging (note that the context of this logfile is different from the one I mentioned here as I did change some things related to networking

Since I noticed the line that said "Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/vmware_drv.so: libLLVM-3.8.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" I thought I'd check out some info related to that driver, but the weird part is that it seems all OK:

# ldd /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/vmware_drv.so
Code:
        linux-gate.so.1 (0xb772a000)
        libxatracker.so.2 => /usr/lib/libxatracker.so.2 (0xb7356000)
        libnettle.so.6 => /usr/lib/libnettle.so.6 (0xb7317000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0xb72fa000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb72f5000)
        libexpat.so.1 => /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1 (0xb72cd000)
        libdrm_nouveau.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdrm_nouveau.so.2 (0xb72c3000)
        libdrm.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdrm.so.2 (0xb72b3000)
        libLLVM-3.8.so => /usr/lib/libLLVM-3.8.so (0xb4e24000)
        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xb4cb3000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb4c5f000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb4ac6000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb4aa8000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80098000)
        libffi.so.6 => /usr/lib/../lib/libffi.so.6 (0xb4aa1000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib/librt.so.1 (0xb4a98000)
        libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/../lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb4a48000)
        libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/../lib/libz.so.1 (0xb4a31000)
So it seems everything is there, including the libLLVM-3.8.so. Since I don't really understand the error, I just checked libLLVM as well:

# ldd /usr/lib/libLLVM-3.8.so
Code:
        linux-gate.so.1 (0xb7726000)
        libffi.so.6 => /usr/lib/../lib/libffi.so.6 (0xb528d000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib/librt.so.1 (0xb524d000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb5248000)
        libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/../lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb51f8000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0xb51da000)
        libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/../lib/libz.so.1 (0xb51c4000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb5170000)
        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/../lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xb4fff000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/../lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb4fe1000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb4e49000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x8006a000)
And after that, all my options have been exhausted and I no longer have any clue where to look next... If you need any specific logging let me know and I'll drop it in. But my guess would be that since this is an out-of-the-box clean installation of slackware 14.2, this shouldn't be the hassle it turned out to be... So probably it's something extremely simple that I am missing (or at least I'm hoping that).

I'm not quite sure what you did, and try to do. But maybe this hints help you.

1. :[NUMBER] is Xserver Display and is not related at all with PCI device numbers.
2. Networking is not required to run local xserver.
3. DISPLAY is set only inside active X session.
4. If you want run command using Xserver but outside active X session you must set DISPLAY variable to number of running server. This will be probably ":0" but you can find it i.e. in this way:
Code:
ps a | grep Xorg | grep -v grep | awk '{print $6}'
5. If xsession is running by other user you must inside X session execute:
Code:
xhost +local

This saved me. And now I feel extremely silly. Nobody told me that glxinfo required an active X session and I thought that glxinfo would basically be a sort of dxdiag (i.e. somthing that retrieves some basic data without requiring anything to be ran). The more you learn....

That does leave the original challenge I had (because glxinfo is working properly) , but I'll start a different topic on that seeing that the title of this one implies a different scope Thanks a lot for your help!!
