xfree86 4.3.0 exp ati radeon 8500 dri

Thanks in advance for your reply:

hour 24 and the coffee is losing its glamour

xfree86 4.3.0 experimental v5
ati radeon 8500 All in Wonder
DRI compiled from:

xfree86 loads okay?:
II) RADEON(0): [drm] installed DRM signal handler
(II) RADEON(0): [DRI] installation complete

(II) RADEON(0): [drm] Initialized kernel GART heap manager, 5111808
(II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering enabled

but glxinfo shits itself:
