(taht was my problem).
In the DRI doc, it says that the module version shipped with standard
vanilla 2.4 kernels is only for XFree86 v4.1. It is possible that the
XFree86 Package provides the correct version but not secure.
Download the correct version from dri.sourceforge.net, compile it and
test if it works with the new modules. Make sure to unload the old ones
and do a 'depmod -a' before load the new modules.
In the DRI documentation are more hints and tricks (versions, GL libs,
bus mastering, ...)
