My screen is scaling-up from the "normal" mode, it just falls short of 
fullscreen.

I experienced similar problems until getting the xv driver working.

As stated, I needed to install libdri and mesa-libGL.

I also needed to add the following lines to my xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
        Load "dri"
        Load "drm"
        Load "extmod"
        Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "dri"
       	Mode    0666
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite" "enable"
EndSection
