why are you building mesa at all?  aren't the rpms good enough?

nvidia was kind enough to take them off the web.  i think you can still get
them from linuxgames.com.

glide is a library -- DRI is a method of hardware access.  you want "glide3"
which is almost completely unsupported by games (and therefore, you'll play
them with an opengl renderer like mesa).

don't forget the tdfx module.
