The missing dependency is the required kernel. The driver is compiled
against a 'big-smp'
kernel, which means a multi CPU box, probably with more than 4GB of
RAM. You're probably running a non-smp kernel anyway, so you'd need to
compile from source. The driver you found here isn't going to work for you.
Honestly, running with the pure included 'radeon' driver should do you
fine. You shouldn't have any need to dig up obscure builds of it to get
DRI going. I used a 9000Pro for years with that driver (and at other
times, fglrx) without issues. Have you tried that yet? If so, what
problems do you have?
