RPI 4 4gb Cant start games compiled for the raspi x11 error

Wed Jul 17, 2019 7:36 pm

Cant start games compiled for the raspi like quake3.

Hello everyone, i am using the RPI 4 4GB running Raspbian Buster.

When i try to start i get this error.
SDL using driver "x11"
* failed to add service - already in use?

i tried different compile runs nothing seems to work. I also tried to use the experimental raspi config gl driver.

Please help :o

I used the official Quake 3 Source to compile it. I also got another game source which i have compiled successfully but wont start aswell because of this error

thread 'main' panicked at 'Failed to create window!: BackendError(Any)', src/libcore/result.rs:999:5
note: run with `RUST_BACKTRACE=1` environment variable to display a backtrace.

Probably worth mentioning which Pi and which version of Raspbian you are using..
Also where you downloaded the games from..
