Unless you changed your host.def file, the DRI build won't build the kernel
modules... The idea is to get people to use the kernel module from their kernel
build (unfortunately, it hasn't always been up to date, and wasn't supported
in the 2.2.* kernels till 2.2.18). What you need to do is change into:
$ make -f Makefile.linux r128.o
This should build the kernel module. Make sure to install it in the proper
location ( /lib/modules/2.4.0-test12/kernel/drivers/char/drm ) and run
"depmod -a" before starting X.
If it's an AGP card, make sure you have agpsupport compiled... If you don't
have an AGP card, make sure you disable support for it in your .config file
before building the r128.o module (otherwise it will never install properly).
