Maybe.  There's a mesa subpackage for the userspace bits of the R600
driver (mesa-dri-drivers-experimental), but we don't build the DRM
support in the kernel yet.  I don't know offhand what's needed to get
that working, but it's something we plan to look at before beta.

-experimental is probably not going to be installed by default though,
as the 3D driver is still a little rough.
