#4303 new bug

app_server doesn't gracefully deal with missing accelerant

Description

If a kernel driver for a graphics chip is present and publishes a device, but its corresponding accelerant is missing, the app_server fails to gracefully fall back to a different device. Noticed this by accident while disabling the radeon (removed the accelerant instead of the kernel driver like I usually do). End result, "Could not initialize graphics output, exiting" on serial, and the Desktop never appeared.

Still a bug? Fallback support has gotten some pretty substantial reworking.

As far as I'm aware, no work has been done to address this specific problem, but I'll recheck this weekend.
