After upgrading to xorg-server-188.8.131.52 my 3DLabs Permedia II 2D+3D card using xf86-video-glint driver stopped loading. The error messages I get in xorg.log are:
(WW) GLINT: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:5:14:0) found
(--) Chipset pm2v found
(EE) Screen 2 deleted because of no matching config section.
I tried this with an older kernel -- same problem.

P.S. This exact configuration worked prior to this latest xorg server update. At the same time as the xorg update I also updated the kernel, so that's why I mention it above.
Can you try removing the RightOf / LeftOf from your screen section, and putting..
in your Monitor sections instead ???
I replaced this card with an nvidia. I might give it a try on a different box though.
Had the same problem with 184.108.40.206 and glint driver. Error shown was missing symbol RamDacCreateInfoRec.
Found probably the same problem shown in this bug:
New xorg-server source doesn't have external ramdac symbols any more.
Their patch fixes that. It's here:
This worked. Glint driver now loads with xorg-server-220.127.116.11
Is this patch now available in gentoo xorg ebuild?
Please try glint 1.2, should be available in your next sync.
Please reopen if it doesn't work, assuming fixed.
I no longer require this driver, not can I test. If anyone else has a problem with it, please reopen. Thanks. Closing.
