No. To be exact, the 2D driver should be good, but you need the libGL stuff
from DRI. I guess I'll put all that in a seperate tarball for my next test

Hint for the X packagers: the DRI stuff should be really easy to integrate
now. Just a few things down xc/lib/GL/mesa and in the r128 2D driver directory
have changed. But I don't know if there's already a plan how to package the
DRI stuff?

This is already old news. It works out of the box on my Pismo, however the
flat panel code can potentially damage the panel, so there's another option to
disable it.

In any case you need to specify the panel dimensions, I'll put an example
XF86Config with my binaries.
