Well, this isn't a surf issue but a webkit one.

You don't have DRI support over-there, or at least it's failing, but I
can't know why.

You could try though try disable 2d acceleration, which is enabled by
default, by deactivating the AcceleratedCanvas in the configuration,
but that won't solve your driver issue, just maybe remove the warning.
