I have an nvidia card using the closed nvidia driver. This driver
doesn't use any /dev/dri devices. I think this completely depends on the
driver, so the problem lies with your /dev/dri/* not being 666.
BTW, if anything it is --enable-xrender, not --enable-gl, that would
cause the problem. Maybe --enable-xrender is not necessary at all, since
I --disable-xft by default. The reason I do this is, that anti-aliased
fonts will render too small. They use a old version of wx for their
interface, and I haven't yet figured out how to set font sizes.
