But this means one lives without DRI/3D at all?

I know nothing of the significance of DRI vs. no DRI. I see glimpses of it in package names and logs, but about it and mesa and glx and glamor and yada I don't think I have any need to know what does what or how or why.

Of 3D, my eyes gather but two dimensions from a computer display panel, and see computer "3D" as but a way to annoy and make a PC generate more heat. If a gfxchip can output a high definition video in believable colors without stutter or drops, it's as good as I can appreciate. :-)
