IIRC, this is the kernel module required for DRI with the in-tree, libre drivers for ATI hardware. The matching x11-driver is "ati" or "radeon".

You other mail had this in the attachment:

which indicates that you are attempting to use the fglrx x11-driver, and not the radeon x11-driver. If you use the CONFIG_RADEON_DRM kernel module, you also need to use the "ati" or "radeon" x11 driver. If your use the fglrx out-of-tree, esclavitud kernel module (at least I think there's a kernel module by this name) you'll alsa need to use the "fglrx" x11 driver. You seem to be running into a simple misconfiguration at this point. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. bss03@××××××××××.net ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.org/ \_/
