Can someone confirm that the drm kernel module (via.ko) is also included 
in the xorg release? Wouldn't I need the kernel source to build this?
(Just confused if installing xorg would provide me with a new version of 
lib/modules/Žuname -rŽ/kernel/drivers/char/drm/via.ko or would it be 
somewhere else and I just have to remove the existing kernel module?)
The dri wiki at sourceforge seems outdated.
