libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found (no NVIDIA/GPU) from XQuartz

I don't have a NVIDIA/GPU hardware in my Manjaro box. (this is an old PC hardware)

AFAIK it is possible to render graphics using opengl without actually having an opengl compatible gpu and one can use MESA which implements the opengl functions entirely inside software.

I'm using a custom xorg.conf config for dummy video driver in a Manjaro installation (called myhost here) without monitor attached. I've also enabled iglx in the xorg.conf file as Indirect GLX was disabled by default in Xorg 1.17, starting from XQuartz version 2.7.9, then to enable indirect GLX and to allow remote visualization in my MacOS I executed:

$ defaults write org.macosforge.xquartz.X11 enable_iglx true

and in the myhost Manjaro xorg.conf file:

Section "ServerFlags"  
    Option "AllowIndirectGLX" "on"  
    Option "IndirectGLX" "on"  

I intend to run X programs remotely through XQuartz (or other X server for that matter). Simple programs like xclock work. But others like Retroarch fails with the libGL error.

I've stopped the running Xorg and launched a new instance with the new config:

$ Xorg -config xorg.conf.dummy-video-driver

I launched XQuartz and entered in the Terminal:

ssh -X myhost

Now inside myhost using the XQuartz terminal:

$ export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose
$ glxinfo

and swrast is installed:

$ locate swrast

Hardware details:

$ inxi -G --display

And display controller details:

At this point I don't understand if I'm missing a libgl1 mesa glx package in Manjaro or if I need another X Server with the GLX extension:

$ Xvfb +extension GLX

Fatal server error:

        If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
        and start again.

I also tried to configure MESA drivers for my graphic card with adriconf but the same libGL error appears.

Any hints or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

boot on USB Iso manjaro
and returns

inxi -Fxxxza

Hi Stephane, I posted this some hours ago: Dump your "inxi -Fxxxza --no-host" here and bookmark it

I don't have a Manjaro ISO, just installed form network. Is it really necessary to boot from USB ISO? How does the inxi command would help?

is a very old and limited graphic hardware

I know, and I already wrote that in the first line of the post. However, MESA implements the OpenGL functions entirely inside software.

Maybe someone has a clue?
