This may or may not be relavent... but I have a triple-head setup using
three Radeon cards; 1 agp based 8500LE and 2 pci based 7000/VE's.

I've never had DRI / X working... The problem(s) you're having sounds
like the problems I was having... Comment out 'Load  "dri"' in xorg.conf
and try it again.

Nikolas, Alistair -

There is still active work going on in the DRI/DRM section of X.org for
ATI/Radeon. There were some partial fixes posted to FreeDesktop.org's
bugzilla, but they require X 6.9.0-CURRENT. Nikolas' suggestion
(commenting Load "DRI") does work, but I was able to get the DRI to
function (with 3D OpenGL) using CURRENT X (as of two months ago; it may
be even better now.)

If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it. -- Vlad Galu
