With puppy 2.13, I managed to get DRI working, using i915_dri.so posted here : http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=14690

But I can't enable vsync : if I use
in my program, it locks for a few seconds, then updates display and locks, ...
I get an error message in the console :
do_wait: drmWaitVBlank returned -1, IRQs don't seem to be working correctly.

I found this : http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2006-August/017777.html

Could someone help me please ? It seems 2.14beta still uses the same Xorg i810 driver. What is the easiest way to recompile it for Puppy ?

You must add the developer tools, and maybe the kernel sources too ...
and then you need the Xorg7.0 source and the Mesa and DRI sources.
Quite a big job, but since kirk has done this already I suggest you ask him nicely to add that patch and recompile i810_drv.so

Sorry hwti,

I deleted all of the mesa stuff after I got the 915 driver.
