The second one is just for aty128fb's panning and not directly related to DRI.

The first one is to get the DRM kernel module working, but you can also build
that from the DRI tree - read below ...

The great news is that I've just been added to the DRI project at sourceforge
( I'll start a PPC branch which you should be able

integrated into the trunk of course :).

I'll post the announcement for that branch to this list as well.
