Bug#541235: xserver-xorg-video-ati: Random Lockups when DRI enabled

AGPMode 8 is not supported by my video card
AGPMode 4 was the default mode, thus it does not work
I tried AGPMode 2 but with no results,
at the time I'm writing this email I'm using AGPMode 1 but still I have
the display not behaving correctly (as the attached image in my first
email) and likely the system will hang up sooner or later.

This is odd, because I've been playing a video game that benefits of DRI
with no problems and when I quit the system locked up in few minutes.

What I can add is that the lockup occurred when I was "playing" with the
windows with Alt+Tab.

I also tried to compile the xf86-video-ati-6.12.2 driver but when
running autogen.sh I have the following error:

./configure: line 11076: syntax error near unexpected token `XINERAMA,'
./configure: line 11076: `XORG_DRIVER_CHECK_EXT(XINERAMA,

and the process quits. Any suggestion?

I will try the option "BusType" "PCI" later, and the xf86-video-ati
driver if I'll be able to compile it.
