Aha.  Maybe they have something to do with kde.  When I try to run kde without
those modules, the X server dies with a bunch of unresolved GL errors.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.  At least I can run X now.

When I put the modules back and try to run X, I get the error
(II) LoadModule: "dri"
(II) Reloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a
(II) UnloadModule: "dri"
(EE) SUNFFB: Failed to load module "dri" (once-only module, 0)
(II) ... unloading a bunch of modules
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Indeed, looking further back in the list of module loads, I find that dri has
been loaded earlier.

The error log snippet above seems to be part of the ramdac module being loaded.

Can I influence this module loading?  I assume these are X server "modules" and
not kernel modules.  Any hints welcome.
