Radeon DRI Update

I got a response from Minskey on the xwindow-discuss alias regarding my trouble upgrading SXCE with the Radeon driver installed:
I am sorry. I should have mentioned it early. The upgrading install or bfu will override the drm module (/kernel/misc/(amd64)/drm) and consconfig_dact (platform/i86pc/kernel/dacf/(amd64)consconfig_dacf). It is because the consconfig_dact is replaced during upgrading. So, before you upgrade your system, you have to : 1. remove radeon driver by "rem_drv radeon" 2. upgrade your system; 3. re-install radeon driver by install.sh scrip in the tarball; -minskey
