Re: New ATI fglrx drivers work with AMD64

I got it to install and I can now boot X using ATI's proprietary
drivers, but I got no OpenGL support. Running glxgears gives me around
60 fps, so I know that's being done in software!

Looking in /var/log/XFree86.0.log I found this:

(II) fglrx(0): Kernel Module Version Information:
(II) fglrx(0):     Name: fglrx
(II) fglrx(0):     Version: 8.8.25
(II) fglrx(0):     Date: Jan 14 2005

(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed!                  *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO)             *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available                *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

Is anyone else seeing this or does everyone else but my have OpenGL by
hardware ?
