Bug Description

When using the new AMDGPU Mesa drivers, DRIConf states that there is no DRI supporting drivers installed.

It apparently is not linked to look for the AMDGPU mesa drivers, only the Radeon ones. Now that the AMDGPU drivers no longer depend on the Radeon drivers, this presents an issue.

The reported errors to console are below:
[code]
Screen "0" is not direct rendering capable.
Driver "vmwgfx" is not installed or does not support configuration.
Driver "vmwgfx" is not installed or does not support configuration.
Driver "radeonsi" is not installed or does not support configuration.
[code]

The GUI error popup is attached.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and DRIConf 0.9.1-4

As a note, it might just need to be recompiled against a newer DRI/Mesa version.

The package hasn't been recompiled in a few years.

If I find the time I will test spinning it off into a PPA, incrementing the build number (and of course changing the build suffex to RuedII-PPA).

Of course, if someone beats me to it I'll be grateful, as will the vast majority of other Linux users.

I'm going to add the OIBAF group, and Ubuntu X groups because this seems up their ally.
