Thanks. What needs to be done to make existing working X DRI drivers work under miniglx? They they just need a DDX replacement?
And so this is the problem in this case that the miniglx DDX replacement isn't doing the right thing?
Excuse my DRI-newbieness, but to what extent is it possible to pull out the DDX code from X and put it into the miniGLX replacement?

It means that the miniglx DDX code radeon_server.c didn't allocate memory
for the GART table and tell the DRM where it was..

I'm not sure I ever got PCIE miniglx working on radeon, on my r300 I think
it used to hang on the first packet I sent it and gave up..
