With K8M890 chipset on Kubuntu 9.04 the system is not running, because
DRI is implemented, and KDE just freeze. ubuntu 9.04 runs, but when I
run OpenGl application (for example glxgears), it just crash with
This is very serious bug, because on the K8M890 chipsets, users can't run Linux.
Please see: http://www.openchrome.org/trac/ticket/303

I resolve this by disable DRI in Openchrome (and back to software
rendering), and its works perfectly for me. Please see attached patch.
I think the DRI should be disabled on K8M890 and VX800 chipset by
default (until DRI will be implemented), to run KDE and other
application without problems. Could someone apply this patch to trunk?

Is it possible to disable DRI from the xorg.conf?
If not, I think it will be great to implement this feature.
