ducrot@poupon:~$ grep dri /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk-sid/ ./
ducrot@poupon:~$ dpkg -l \*trunk\*
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
un drm-trunk-modu <none> (no description available)

ii xlibmesa-gl1-d 2003.10.05-1 Mesa 3D graphics library [DRI trunk]
un xlibmesa3-dri- <none> (no description available)
