- From what i see here you have a vidcard that does not support render.
There is a list of supported vidcards in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Cards, if
yours is not there, bug the x people to make it support render.

The message pops up because you have a qt that is compiled with the -xft
flag and when it tries to use the render enxtension it does not find it
and therefore the warning. One thing you could try is check if your
/etc/X11/XF86Config contains this in the Modules section:
  Load          "freetype"

It is does not add it and try again. If it fails too bad your vidcard is
not supported. But this is all very very offtopic on this list so try the
Render mailing list on www.xfree86.org and bug them :)

The programs all function correctly, but the message is starting to get more annoying than anything else. I have also noticed that I also get this error with Python programs created with a binding set called PyQt.
