In that case, just to clear things up (there was also some stuff going
in private email), there are three things you need in order to get dri
1. The mach64 xserver (in the xserver package).
2. The mesa libraries (in the xlibmesa packages).
3. The mach64 drm kernel module (in the src package). Take note that this
needs to be compile for you kernel. The sources are put in
/usr/src/drm-mach64.tar.gz. They need to untared which goes into the
directory modules/drm-mach64 and then need to be compiled for your
kernel. There is a small bug with that package that won't let it
compile, replace the modules/drm-mach64/debian/control.m4 file with
the attached one and it should solve it.
I will have to see about the requirements for compiling it (I need
to see if the whole kernel source needs to be fetched). Anyway, if
you have a kernel source tree then in its top directory you need to
do make-kpkg --revision <revision> --added-modules drm-mach64 modules-image
The will builg the drm-mach64 deb.

Description: DRI CVS mach64 DRM modules
This package provides the DRM modules for kernel version KVERS
required for 3D hardware acceleration.
These modules were built from the mach64 branch of the DRI CVS repository.
