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.
