To both Markus and Helena:

What happens if you just disable loading "dri", but still load "glx"?

If there are problems when using the XFree86 GLX extension, that
should probably be investigated further. OTOH, if the problems are
limited to DRI, that's to be expected. Although, you might want to add
a "don't use DRI" notice, just in case anyone still hasn't figured
that one out for themselves yet ;)
