This driver has been the best supported for many years. It has been
the best 3d performance available with free software drivers since the
Matrox g400 and g550.

I completely agree! I have a few 9250 cards (PCI and AGP) which work flawlessly with r200 DRI. It just works "out of the box".
The driver is amazingly stable and full featured.

I too get the "visual warning" too (for depth 32). But I've set defaultDepth to 24 (it works even if I don't set it).

I my experience, its best to stick with R200 drivers than go with proprietary drivers.
