The version of the radeon drivers in kernel 2.6.31 went up to 2.0.0. Due to
some strange programming in the radeon driver, this is seen as a lower version
than the required 1.8.0. This initially stopped the driver from activating DRI.
With a small patch and the OBS, I managed to recompile the xorg-drivers-video,
but now it comes up with the following error:

drmOpenByBusid: drmGetBusid reports pci:0000:01:00.0
(II) [drm] DRM interface version 1.3
(II) [drm] DRM open master succeeded.
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] Using the DRM lock SAREA also for drawables.
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] framebuffer handle = 0xe0000000
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] added 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) RADEON(0): X context handle = 0x1
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] installed DRM signal handler
(WW) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP not available
(EE) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP failed to initialize. Disabling the DRI.
(II) RADEON(0): [agp] You may want to make sure the agpgart kernel module
is loaded before the radeon kernel module.
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel

Without DRI mode, the composite mode is not active and therefore KDE/Compiz do
not have any desktop effects
