i got cvs binary snapshots from dri, i believe it will work right now,
but looking in xfree logs, it says that i need dri kernel module v1.10
at least and i have 1.9 (the one that comes with kernel 2.6.[4|5], so
i got cvs dri kernel modules, compiled as doc says, and when i tried
to do a insmod or modprobe it says that the module is in incorrent
format! anyone could help me on this?
btw, im using slackware-current with kernel 2.6.4 and xfree 4.4

You could do what I did (just this week) and run the
2.6.5-mm6 kernel (or any recent -mm branch, I
believe). The -mm patch set contains a more recent
DRM merge (1.10.0). What I would then do, to ensure
compatibility, is compile the DRI CVS against the
kernel's DRM. That's fairly easy to do. When you
edit host.def, #define DRMSrcDir as
/usr/src/linux-2.6.5/drivers/char/drm. In the
kernel's drm directory you'll also need to create two
symlinks, as the DRI CVS expects the DRM directory
structure to be a little different:
ln -s . shared
ln -s . linux
Then just hop back to the xc/xc directory and make
World && make install.
