I know this maybe late, but I hope it can still be a help.

Edit the xorg.conf file:

Under "Module" section, make sure there are the following lines:

Code:
Section "Module"
...
Load  "dri"
Load  "glx"
Load  "glcore"
...
EndSection
Under the "Device" section,

Code:
Section "Device"
...
Option     "DRI"        "True"
Option     "MaxXFBMem"  "16384"
...
EndSection
These two options is found from http://www.winischhofer.at/linuxsispart2.shtml#options, refer the option for DRI and MaxXFBMem. From what I have read, MaxXFBMem is not require if sisfb is loaded. But, even after I loaded sisfb, I still get the same error message. Thus, I removed sisfb from my system, and set the two options above.

Under the "DRI" section,

Code:
Section "DRI"
      Mode 0666
EndSection
NOTE: ... mean deleted text. Do not add '...' into the xorg.conf file.

Good luck!

ps: Try testings these setup under init 3, use startx to start the X. After it works, switch back to init 4.
