Problem Starting Second X session DRI failure


I've been trying to figure out how to minimize fullscreen games in gnome but pretty much gave up and decided just to start a new X server.

start the X server with
# X :1.0

the X session starts ok but I get the following message in the terminal:
[i](EE) I810(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.[i]

and when I started up NWN I obviously got the "Failed to is initialize graphics"
The DRI works fine on my first X Session as evidenced by
# glxinfo | grep rendering
but shows "no" for the new session if i start up an xterm in it.

X stats:
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.7
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.21-14.ELsmp i686 [ELF]
Current Operating System: Linux 2.6.8-1.521 #1 Mon Aug 16 09:01:18 EDT 2004 i686

/var/log/Xorg.2.log can be found at (sorry they wont let me post urls yet)

Any ideas? Assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you need me to post any logs or anything just lemme know.
