just updated the xserver and everything and am noticing this in xorg.conf

[    15.099] drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns 11
[    15.100] drmOpenByBusid: drmGetBusid reports pci:0000:01:00.0
[    15.100] (EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed because
of a version mismatch.
[dri] This chipset requires a kernel module version of 1.17.0,
[dri] but the kernel reports a version of 2.8.0.[dri] If using legacy
modesetting, upgrade your kernel.
[dri] If using kernel modesetting, make sure your module is
[dri] loaded prior to starting X, and that this driver was built
[dri] with support for KMS.
[dri] Disabling DRI.
[    15.100] (II) RADEON(0): Generation 2 PCI interface, using max
accessible memory

not sure if I missed a switch or something when building one of the packages

xorg.conf log is here:


any ideas?
