Since the kernel loads the kernel modules, you'll have to either
update to a newer kernel (probably 2.6.20) to get the required drm
module, or build a newer drm module for this kernel.

In the case that you want to try to build the drm modules and install
them in place of your kernel's drm modules, see the instructions on
the DRI website:


Building external kernel modules can be tricky, so YMMV.
