The unichrome DRI module has been removed from Mesa together with all
the DRI 1 only modules, so there currently no way to get 3D acceleration
for VIA chipsets. You'll have to use the softpipe driver until further
development happens, be it either revival of the old module by porting
it to DRI2 or a new Gallium3D module is written.
