wrong(?) libGL modules path


I do have ati radeon r300-based card, using radeon driver from x.org. The only problem is that dri is not enabled. As i discovered it comes from wrong xorg modules path.
Code:
:~$ export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose
:~$ glxinfo | grep libGL
libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 5.2.0 r300 (screen 0)
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so
libGL error: dlopen /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so: u
ndefined symbol: _glapi_add_dispatch)
libGL error: unable to find driver: r300_dri.so
libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 5.2.0 r300 (screen 0)
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so
libGL error: dlopen /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so: u
ndefined symbol: _glapi_add_dispatch)
libGL error: unable to find driver: r300_dri.so
then i do slocate r300_dri.so and find that mesa has it installed in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/
So, is this normal?



tried to symlink the driver from /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/r300_dri.so to /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so -- this didn't work, maybe i've done something wrong.

Finally i got DRI working... It was the really hard way. As long as my system was a rather fresh install i did a whole reinstall. And got it working.
The problem was, in my opinion, fglrx proprietary driver from ati, which somehow modified my libGl, as in that dir /usr/lib/dri/ only fglrx drivers lay.
