   We prefer bottom posting on this list. Please place your responses
at the bottom of a message for improved readability.

   DRI (Direct Rendering Interface I think) is a means of accelerating
video. It is enabled or disabled in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I
suppose you had better post that file back so we can look at your
configuration. Basically that file tells X what to do when you start
it, and the log file that you sent is the result.

   DRI working or not working will not stop your machine from being
useful. Many of my machines often run without it.

   Can you please clearly state what problem you are having at this
point? What is not working for you?

   Also, please post back the output of the lsmod command, the lspci
command, as well as the contents of your /etc/modprobe.conf file.
