what is wrong with the armsoc driver?
Posted in wrong subforum - moved.
It looks like your Xserver is running ABI 23 and your armsoc_drv with ABI 20. That means your armsoc_drv is older than the rest of your Xserver.
Did you apt-get upgrade the xorg-server pkg? Than you need to upgade
xf86-video-armsoc as well.
Maybe helps.
