I was running 4.1 before and I had no problems.  I was also running your
bare bones 4.2 binaries as well (However, I used the ati driver as per
your xf86config) and I don't recall any problems. When I was running
your binaries I only had Indirect rendering for glx, now when I am am
using the full package I am using the r128 driver (I couldn't see a
manpage for ati, and I was puzzled why it worked.) and I have Direct

OpenGL vendor string: VA Linux Systems, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Rage128 20010405 M3 AGP 1x
OpenGL version string: 1.2 Mesa 3.4.2

I saw from another post that direct rendering is unstable with the M3. 
I did get a system crash last night when changing the display settings
in quake2 (To use lower detail, as the framerate slowed dramatically
when an explosion was visible).

Could this be related? Or is it a completely seperate issue.
