     Hello, I've got a Trident Cyberblade i1 display board in this box
and glxinfo indicates that DRI is not working- therefore there is no
3D acceleration going on :(
     A quick Googling seems to indicate that the trident driver for
xf86 supports DRI. Is the x.org driver a different one? If so, will
the xf86 driver work in x.org?

     Here's the relevant glxinfo output:

I'm not sure what the LIBGL_DEBUG part is about- perhaps this is an
environment variable? I'll try to set it and see what happens.
