You need both for DRI to work - a kernel module and a userspace X11
driver. On my system the kernel module is "via":
via 41568 1
drm 62356 2 via
via_agp 9088 1
agpgart 29744 2 drm,via_agp
And the X driver is "via_drv.so":
If the X server is properly configured, the kernel modules will
automatically be loaded when X starts. Check Xorg logs.
