I think I have a line on what's screwing up dri. You were correct -
something was hanging on to it. I shut the computer off (in
frustration) and when it powered back up, dri was working. So I ran
the "tremulous test program" and the Xserver hung. Ctrl-alt-backspace
to kill it. Then when I restarted the xserver, dri was gone. The
lsof command found what grabbed it. So I think I got it.
I'll have to try a few things. Getting fullscreen apps to run in
multihead mode with dri looks like it gonna take a little more
monkeying around. But at least the hardware is working. So far, the
945GM chip looks like it can do pretty cool things.
