KDE works when I use the "radeon" driver, but I get no DRI.

Where do I go from here? I didn't find a user forum for the ATI drivers, just a no-response bug reporting link.

Hmm... well I'm glad you were fortunate enough to get the kernel module working on a 2.6 kernel (aren't the ATI prop. modules designed for 2.2.x and specifically 2.4.x... atleast the Release Notes a.k.a Readme says that). Good backward compatibility in 2.6 it *seems*.

You mentioned that KDM refuses to start. Maybe the next step is to try starting a minimal windowmanager like blackbox/fluxbox/twm/take-your-pick and see what the XFree logs say. That might be a step towards better seeing if the problem is universal...
