Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advanced
options, especially changing the compositing type.

Go to /usr/lib/dri and move to Then do a
ln -s /usr/lib64/dri/ /usr/lib/dri/.

That will fix the problem.

I actually tried that last night after I posted, and no, it didn't fix
the problem. That got me past glxinfo errors, but KDE still refuses to
take it. I tried XRender, but the effects are so choppy, slow and
outright buggy that I can't use it. OpenGL is still a no go.
