Exclamation Another Direct Rendering Victim

Hello guys!

I've been trying for days to get Direct Rendering working... But I'm very frustrated with the results. I'll show you what I've got so far:

I have the following config:
XFree 4.3
ATI Radeon 9000
Conectiva Linux 9.0

My XFree86.0.log shows:
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] added 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) RADEON(0): [agp] Mode 0x1f000201 [AGP 0x1039/0x0735; Card 0x1002/0x4966]
(II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering enabled

In my XF86Config-4 file I have the following:
Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Load "dri"

When I run glxinfo I get the following message:
# glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect

When I run strings | grep DRI" I get the following:
XF86DRIQueryDirectRenderingCapable failed
XF86DRIQueryDirectRenderingCapable returned false
XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: %d.%d.%d %s (screen %d)

Again, I am very frustrated because I have done everything that the troubleshooting of XFree tells me to do, and still I have no DRI... Can anybody please help me?
