I didn't mean that. What I meant is that, according to the messages I
attached, the DRM sources in the 2.4.7 *kernel* tree are not the same
as those in the 4.1.0 *X server* tree. Since the X server (more
precisely, the DRI modules) expect a specific version of the DRM
interface, compiling the DRM support from the kernel insn't enough to
get a working DRI setup (déjà vu)
But Mike is right, the old modules are also useless, too. I wish we
had a way to express this via dependencies, but I don't see a simple
way of doing that given the variables involved.
