Hm, I've had it running on my Suse distribution with a 2.4.0-test8
kernel before I migrated to Debian. It took me about two weeks to get
it running with Suse ...

Thus, I've already had it the other way round than you seem to have it
now: When I tried 2.4.0-test9 (on Suse), DRI didn't work with it
because the modules in 2.4.0-test9 were version 2, while XFree
expected 1.x :/

Well, I was hoping to discover an easy way to get it going this time,
like just downloading some Debian package(s), install it/them, edit my
XF86Config, maybe get and compile a new kernel --- and enjoy. But it
doesn't seem to be that easy, still :/

It would be nice if you could let me know whether 2.4.0-test11 and the
current XF86 sources fit together or not. I'm not exactly looking
forward to having to download several megs of X11 sources, not to
speak of a new kernel version again; but keeping up to date with the
XFree development might be a good idea, anyway. The improvement in
performance is really great in both 2D and 3D :), though the only
reason I need 4.0.1 is that game, `Terminus'.

Good luck with getting it working!
