DRI and Mesa

Basically I goning to run opengl apps on my computer but DRI is not working. I just downloaded Mesa 6.2.1 and I was wondering weather or not I need DRI funtional in order to use it. I have a sony vaio PCG-F630
and Red Hat linux 7.3. If so, how do I activate it. Its not listed on their site but mesa is working.

I'm not shure but few minutes ago I saw into
xorg.conf or XF86Config files, about DRI
as follow:

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "synaptics"
Load "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
Load "dri" # direct rendering

Shure..../etc/X11 directory

Do I hope be useful...

That thread is present and glxgears works at a mere 50fps but glxinfo still states that DRI is not functional.
