What do you think about simply removing the dri module if a recent ATI
card has been detected? The entry may even be there, but commented. The
reason is simple, it still causes trouble with dying (system locking) X
server, and for many people the stuff does not work anyway without the
non-free driver. I heard rumors about beta quality support for some X800
chips but not much more.

<Alfie> Ich kanns nicht verstehen.....
