Those messages are printed after checking the fifo files.  I haven't
seen or used 3Dx1 before, but this is defined in etc/monitorcap, I
presume.  I would suggest that you check that the dev/ directory and the
entry in etc/monitorcap for 3Dx1 and/or x1 and make sure that the files
pointed to in monitorcap exist in the dev directory.  Also make sure
that the FIFO file is really a FIFO file, it should show up in a long
directory listing as prw-rw-rw- .
