Summary: tdfx module is unused after start
Details: I run Linux Mandrake 7.2 and XFree86-4.0.1-26 on my AMD K6/2 with a Voodoo3-3000 board. Each time when XFree is started for the first time after boot, the tdfx module is loaded but reported by lsmod to be "unused". When running GL-based applications, there is no DRI-support available.
As soon, as I restart the XServer (e.g. pressing ctrl + alt + backspace) and log in again, DRI is supported and the tdfx driver is no longe unused. Looks to me like the tdfx module isn't correctly initialized / loaded when XFree86 is started for the first time after boot.
