This is will likely not work in multi-robot systems. This message will only print once. File radeon_swtcl.c function r100_swtcl_flush line 323 Rendering was 1 commands larger than predicted size. We might overflow command buffer.

The material errors you are getting is because Ogre (rendering engine of rviz) cannot render the pointcloud material on your graphics hardware. Maybe try upgrading your driver or your hardware. Alternatively you can try to change the material definition, maybe you find something that works with your hardware.

Check the Ogre.log file, it should contain more information on the error.

Is it really necessary to start rviz with that config file? Cant you just start rviz normally (rosrun rviz rviz), add an laser scan display with topic /laser and "Style" points (might help to get around the billboard error) and set the fixed frame to laser (or whatever the hokuyo-node publishes as transform)?

But i agree with LiMuBei in that you should also try to sort out the basic problem with rviz using his advice.
