Maybe not for the closed source (ati's) driver, but for the open source
driver if the drm kernel module is not loaded then DRI can't be done
which means your getting unaccelerated video.  I'm not familiar with
ati's driver so I don't know if it is the same.  If it is do

modprobe radeon
and then show the output of dmesg | tail



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
