i was unable to install X from "pkg_add" as pkg_add is not downloading anything.

pkg_add  www.pkgsrc-box.org/packages/stable/DragonFly-1.8/All/

just HANGS in there and doe snot do anything as my ADSL modem lights
do not blink. ic an open that address in Firefox right now. so i built
the whole X from source , it sucked my 6 hours :-(
worse is i get a message, something like this,  when i do startx:

VIA(00): disabling DRI

why so? i have this hardware and X on GNU OS (e.g. Arch, Gentoo) works
pretty wellw ithout ant DRI problems. i think that means i will not be
able to play videos properly.
