You need to rebuild the omap3-sgx-modules with DRI support, install the extra modules, etc. Then you need to install the xorg module and hope the ABIs match, install a xorg.conf snippet, etc, etc.

The best way forward is to have the gfx team rebuild the X stuff against the X we have in OE, not the one IMGtec delivers.
