It says that DRI dDirect rendering) is not enabled.  What kernel vresion
are you running?  Please provide the output of:

uname -a

cat /proc/modules


dpkg -l kernel\* |grep ii

include your XF86Config-4 as an attachment please.

Hopefully this is the case:
For 2.4 series (not sure for 2.6) you need the danzer dri trunk packages
for dri.

If this is the case put this in your sources list:

deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk-sid ./

apt-get update and apt-get install xlibmesa-gl1-dri-trunk
xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk drm-trunk-module-src

go to /usr/src and tar -xvf drm-trunk.tar.gz

Go into your kernel-source directory (if you don't have one we can work
around this)

if you have kernel-package installed you should be able to:

make-kpkg modules_image

to get an installable drm-modules deb appropriate for your kernel.

Then make sure that agpgart and radeon (or whatever your cards module
is) are loaded, in that order and restart x.  Hopefully this will get
dri working.
