I don't see any modules listed.  Is DRI enabled?  check with:

glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"

If it says yes, you should be all set, if not, try adding the following:

to your xorg.conf file.  IF it still doesn't work, you will need to look
at your Xorg.0.log file in detail to see what's failing.
