In principle, yes, in practice, no.
You can get the DRM sources for the 4.x releases currently present in
Debian from http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/dri/, the files are
called drm-4.0.3.tar.gz (for current testing) and drm-4.1.0.tar.gz (for
There's a debconf note that tells you about other sources (its priority
is not particularly high, nor should it, so it seems a number of people
are missing it and having trouble because of that).
Provided that you have only a CD-ROM and no net access, there doesn't
seem to be a way to get the DRI working in Debian currently.
Theoretically, by the time of release, Debian will include kernel
sources that can be actually used with the DRI modules it ships.
That's a nice theory. The drm sources in 2.4.7 are in sync with the
ones present in the DRI CVS trunk, which are not in sync with the ones
released with 4.1.0.
