Xfree Error (EE) module ABI minor version (7) is newer than the server's version (6)

I have recently tried to upgrade my radeon driver for Xfree 4.3.0 so I can enable DRI as I only seem to have the soft rendering... but I get the following error.... its all going a bit over my head but I have been reading everywhere and think I might need to do somthing with using this file I downloaded linux-drm-4.3.0-kernelsource.tar.gz

(II) LoadModule: "radeon"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.o
(II) Module radeon: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 4.0.1
Module class: XFree86 Video Driver
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.5
(EE) module ABI minor version (7) is newer than the server's version (6)
(II) UnloadModule: "radeon"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.o
(EE) Failed to load module "radeon" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

Can anyone help me out here I have been trying for like two weeks to get DRI working! I installed drivers from ATI and it worked but it screwed up Xawtv... so I just want the more compatable DRI drivers to work.
