I updated/reconfigured a system which was headless for some time and can't get DRI back working. X and drivers seem to load without any errors (Log). When starting glxinfo (or any other program accessing OpenGL) the following error appears. The same command (and acceleration) works fine when started as root (same X-session via su), so the drivers itself should be OK.
name of display: :0
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 16
Current serial number in output stream: 17
name of display: :0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI

Extended renderer info (GLX_MESA_query_renderer):

Device: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Desktop (0x412)
The user is member of video-group, also chmodding /dev/dri/ or 0666ing Section "DRI" didn't help (but since the files exist and are owned by :video it looked fine anyway).

Currently a internal 3rd/4th gen Intel IGC is used. I also replaced the GPU, tried different drivers, XDMs and DEs and added clean user accounts, but - if DRI is working - it keeps beeing acessible only as root. I guess there is still some permission broken, maybe some consolekit-voodoo?

Any tips where I should continue my search? Thanks in advance.
