Xserver can use DRI directly, you need to enable modesetting
driver in Xorg config or use the designated driver for your card
(if there is any).


Section "Device"
        Identifier "Card0"
        Driver "modesetting"
        Option "kmsdev" "/dev/dri/card0"
        Option "SWcursor" "true"
        BusID "PCI:X:X:X"

Best Regards,
Jose Miguel Abreu
