Yes, I suspected as much. the fglrx module seems to have builtin DRM.

Maybe this helps:
ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 2004-09-19 20:47
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 798590 2004-07-16 17:23 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2004-09-18 23:20
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 500480 2004-09-06 13:16 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3
Try finding out where those libGL*.a files on your system come from
with dpkg -S <filename>. Maybe that is causing problems. I only have
these and everything works fine (as far as I can tell, haven't
actually tried tuxracer yet). Maybe it's even in the ATI FAQ?

Glad to be of help.
