Unfortunately, noone has come up with anything but a hack about this

If one uses UseFBDev, does that mean one can't use DRI?

I ask because I too have had problems doing anything but UseFBDev, and I
haven't figured out the magic to get DRI working either (after following
the directions at dri.sourceforge.net etc. a couple of times).

(iMac DV 400, Rage128 4MB, 2.4.9pre-something-benh-something, I'm at
work right now and can't check)

Is 4M enough?

No, it's not enough... But his machine (iMac DV 400, summer 2000) has 8 megs, just like my iMac. And DRI does work (only at 16bpp though, not enough vram for 1024x768@24bpp + memory for textures)

I got it to work eventually, but it requires 16bpp, and one of the older
revisions of 2.4.8 made colours go very strange.

It is working now (on the iBook2), I can send you the config I use if you

I have a XF86Config on my website for the iBook2, just merge with the one for the iMac also on my website:
