Hi Vincent,


To make it works (DRI) firstly you must have X server installed in poroper 
version (I'm afraid that native within  NetBSD won't ever work). Please try 
compilling modular-xorg-server and than MesaLib-dri (from pkgsrc-wip). If you 
manage with new xorg and mesa-lib-dri, there is one thing left- see man drm (I 
assume that you're using current NetBSD, there you'll find recpie how to 
create /dev/dri/card0 [I can't recall it now, sorry]).

And I'm sure that this is all you must do to have DRI working.
