  Has anyone had any success getting FlightGear to work with a ATI
  all in wonder 128 pro?  Without DRM support it would work but be
  painfully slow. Now, I think that I now have the kernel and XFree86
  properly configured for DRM support. However whenever i try to run
  the program it locks the entire system while loading.  I can use
  other openGL applications without any problem so im not sure whats
  happening.  Below is some relevant information. Any ideas?
