I don't think so, I certainly don't do it myself but OTOH I am not using DRI.

I had no troubles at all, except for one thing:
Apparently Xv is not restored/reinitialized properly so if you want to use
xine or whatever you have to restart X (this may be xine related but I doubt
it, couldn't make Xv to work without restarting X, anybody knows ?)
It is not clear to me if this is a BIOS bug (not saving/restoring the video
memory/registers properly) or an Xv bug (or whatever).
