I want to add that the screen is NOT only black as I told you a few hours ago, it's black and there's (barely visible in dark grey) the output of console.
Changing to 16bit color depth results in a violet font.
In any case it's a total lock-up.

Does anyone know what could be wrong here?

Ok, I fixed that problem, the file radeon_dri.so should have been in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/radeon_dri.so .
So I'm able to start the sample_server, but the only thing I get is a black screen.

I cannot change to other framebuffer consoles, my ssh-session gets stuck, the only thing i can do is to reboot.

When starting via SSH i get this output:

When starting at the PC itself i get a black screen.

I don't know what's wrong, maybe i'll play with the settings a little bit, but if anyone has experienced something like that, please help...

I finally managed to compile mesa with linux-solo configuration after a few weeks of trial-and-error.
Now whenever i try to start the sample_server I get this error:

I am using Arch Linux with 2.6.25 kernel and modifications regarding the file drm_drv.c
Video Card is ATI Radeon 9800, modules radeon, radeofb, agpgart are loaded.

I have absolutly no idea why he refuses to find radeon_dri.so, the file exists in

(and of course in /root/Mesa-7.0.3/lib/radeon_dri.so and /root/Mesa-7.0.3/src/mesa/drivers/dri/radeon/radeon_dri.so)

If it should be somewhere else - please tell me.

If there's any other reason why it refuses to work, please tell me. I've absolutly no idea what could be wrong, I need your help.
