Why make wild guesses?
Simply run
LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
and it will complain about what is wrong.

I suggest to reinstall everything in debianized way (following the
suggestions from this maillist):

$ ./ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-x86_64.run --extract fglrx-tmp
$ cd fglrx-tmp
$ fakeroot ./packages/Debian/ati-packager.sh --buildpkg sid
$ cd ..

if everything went OK, remove the currently instances of fglrx
$ rm -rf /usr/src/modules/fglrx /usr/src/fglrx.tar.bz2

then install the newly created .deb packages with dpkg,
and run module-assistant to build and install fglrx-kernel module.
