I've recently moved from 3.3.6 to 4.0.1 and haven't been able to get DRI
working on my G400...  ...Yet.  I'm using a 2.4.0-test5 kernel and it
looks like the DRI modules included with it (v1) are incompatible with
the X 4.0.1 .debs, which seem to need v2.  I've just downloaded the
2.4.0-test11 kernel source and (what I think is) the latest DRI source
from dri.sourceforge.net and will have a go at getting them working.
