Hi all,

I just need some help with this, i don't know what i'm doing wrong.
I'm trying to enable dri on an ATI X300 which is based on the rv370

First of all, i don't see any messages when the radeon drm module in
kernel is loaded in dmesg, but only when the module is unloaded. Maybe
this is the problem or is just the normal behaviour not to be
verbose... Anyway, after starting X, i always see this message in the

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled

I don't have the Mesa DRI drivers compiled, because i was said in this
list that they're not really necessary to enable DRI if you just want
