Question dri driver problems

Can anyone help me? I am struggling to get these dri drivers to load correctly. I have installed them fine and got the mesa libs installed correctly but when I start the xserver I get this error message. I have got the latest versions of all the software, from xfree86 and the dri drivers and mesa libs. Yet I still get this error message pointing to some version that is not quite at what it needs. Does anyone know what I need still.

Module ABI minor version (7) is newer than the server's version (6)

Failed to load module "radeon" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

I had exactly the same problem, I have an older Radeon so am unable to use the ATI linux drivers.

After much googling and hair pulling I found a page on which said there was a flaw in current version and recommended compling from most recent CVS.

I have done that and now all is ok.
