Details

Description:
In virtualbox, the newest version of mesa or mesa-libgl breaks 3D acceleration in Arch guests.

Additional info:
* mesa 10.1.1-1
* mesa-libgl 10.1.1-1
* virtualbox 4.3.10
* virtualbox 4.3.10-2

Solution:
Downgrade to mesa and mesa-libgl 10.1.0-5 restores 3D acceleration functionality.

Steps to reproduce:
Arch guest (x86_64) fresh install in virtualbox 4.3.10 with virtualbox-guest-modules installed. Installation of Cinnamon reports "software rendering mode" while glxinfo reports:

$ export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose
$ glxinfo | grep render
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI3 capable
libGL error: failed to authenticate magic 3
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL: driver does not expose __driDriverGetExtensions_swrast(): /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so: undefined symbol: __driDriverGetExtensions_swrast
libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/markus/.drirc: No such file or directory.
libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/markus/.drirc: No such file or directory.
direct rendering: Yes
GLX_MESA_multithread_makecurrent, GLX_MESA_query_renderer,
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits)
GL_MESA_ycbcr_texture, GL_NV_blend_square, GL_NV_conditional_render
This task depends upon

I confirm the bug,

I use arch guest i686, glxinfo reports :

$ glxinfo | grep render
libGL error: failed to authenticate magic 3
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo
direct rendering: Yes
GLX_MESA_multithread_makecurrent, GLX_MESA_query_renderer,
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits)
GL_MESA_ycbcr_texture, GL_NV_blend_square, GL_NV_conditional_render,

glxgears gives very low framerates,

maybe we must wait an update of virtualbox-guest-modules from upstream

Please report it upstream, it's not a packaging bug.
