I'm trying to install XGL on my Ubuntu desktop, following this guide:
Following the first step, I've tried to install my ati card's drivers following this:
The card is a Radeon 9600. The problem is, whenever I create the .Xsession script on my home folder to try to run xgl, there is no acceleration at all, and also no xgl-like effects.
Troubleshooting this, I've run fglrxinfo, which reveals that it hasn't actually detected my card...it's output is:
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
The output of dmesg | grep fglrx shows that there was an error:
$ dmesg | grep fglrx
[17179591.516000] fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
[17179591.516000] [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 929 MBytes.

[17179608.568000] [fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 4276 using kernel context 0
Process 4276 is actually Xorg:
$ ps -A | grep 4276
4276 tty7 00:00:32 Xorg
Does anyone have a clue on how to solve this? How can I get fglrx working?
