I've updated two days ago my system (which means an update somewhere from up to 1 week ago) and KWin suddenly stopped working. It starts up without compositing and claims to have disabled it because OpenGL detection failed. I don't know where the problem is. I re-merged ati-driver, xorg-server and kwin but to no avail.

Anybody has a similar problem since a couple of days and an idea what could be the cause?

- ati-driver stayed the same
- kernel stayed the same

What this change is XOrg (I've seen the update flash by). Could there be a problem with XOrg or MESA?

Anything that's useful trying to re-emerge?

x11-base/xorg-server-1.15.0:0/1.15.0 (now after update)
x11-drivers/ati-drivers-14.4_p1 (stayed the same)
3.10.7-gentoo-r1 kernel (stayed the same)
kde-base/kwin-4.11.9 (no idea if this updated... I guess not)

Could this be somehow related to it? From the XOrg logs:

[  4768.164] (EE) AIGLX error: failed to open /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/, error[/usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/ cannot open shared object file:
No such file or directory]

Managed to retrieve the old XOrg log from during the crash. It looks like this:
