It's just straight i386 (aP4) - though I am interested in what you
say above, as I also have an amd64 machine running 5-STABLE with
a Radeon which also will not do drm for love nor money! Got any
references for that ?

There are no references to either dri or drm in the logfiles. Will the
logfile actually be written if the X server doesnt startup properly though ?

Thanks for the advice.
