AGP & DRI on a Radeon Xpress 1150

Howdy List,

I'm trying to setup Debian Etch on a new Dell Inspiron 1501. X is
working great so far, except that I cannot get DRI enabled. I can
modprobe radeon and tell the xorg.conf to use the radeon driver, but
glxinfo still reports no DRI.

Looking in the xorg.log file it says screen :0 is not dri capable. So I
have tried adjusting refresh rates and resolution and everything but
still the same error message. 

Finally I realized that it is not creating a /dev/dri/card0 device. I
am assuming 'it' would be udev, in this instance, probably because
there is no '*_agp' module loaded. So I tried loading each of the *_agp
modules present in the 2.6.18-4-amd64 kernel but still
no /dev/dri/card0. I have seen others say they got DRI working on their
1501, so I am hoping someone knows what I need to do or maybe another
1501 user can share some config details with me.

Any hints or tips?

TIA & HAND,
Jacob
