DRI not working on XFree86 4.0 with ATI Radeon Mobility

So... i've been doing my BLFS. I compiled the 2.6.1 kernel and i just compiled XFree86 4.0 because it is supposed to support my video card (ATI Radeon 9200 Mobility). (All of the compiling i did it from a chroot enviroment using the
chroot $LFS /tools/bin/env -i     HOME=/root TERM=$TERM PS1='\u:\w\$ '     PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin     /tools/bin/bash --login
command from my slackware 9.1 partition with kernel 2.4.24, if it changes anything...)

X is working, but DRI isnt.
Here are some lines from /var/log/XFree86.0.log

(II) ATI:  Candidate "Device" section "Card0".
(--) Chipset ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 (M9) Lf (AGP) found
(II) RADEON(0): AGP card detected
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] created "radeon" driver at busid "PCI:1:0:0"
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] added 8192 byte SAREA at 0xe2862000
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] mapped SAREA 0xe2862000 to 0x42252000
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] framebuffer handle = 0x98000000
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] added 1 reserved context for kernel
(WW) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP not available
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) RADEON(0): Acceleration enabled
(==) RADEON(0): Backing store disabled
(==) RADEON(0): Silken mouse enabled
(II) RADEON(0): Using hardware cursor (scanline 802)
(II) RADEON(0): Largest offscreen area available: 1280 x 5747
(II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled

(EE) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap
(this one has nothing to do with the rest, but if anyone knows how to fix it, i'd be glad)

I just recompiled my kernel with agp and the chipset for ATI and Intel, so im sure agp module is enabled.

also, when i run infoglx or glxgears, as suggested by BLFS, i get the message

glxinfo: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
even when i do have those libraries.

suggestions please

It look like your AGP modules arn't loading
or you forgot to turn DRI on in the XF86Config

does this happen when you try doing that with root or just a normal user?
