Did you also update fglrx?
Check to see if your card is supported by free software drivers.

I am getting a lot of support requests concerning fglrx due to ATI dropping support for a lot of cards. The upside is that these cards are supported in the free software radeon or radeonHD drivers.

Yes, fglrx does not support X server 1.7.* yet. Hopefully in the next month or two.

You can use the open source drivers. They should have worked out-of-the-box on a Slackware64 -current installation, but are probably now broken that you installed fglrx. Remove fglrx, reinstall mesa and the xserver packages, and then switch to the 'radeon' or 'radeonhd' driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I removed fglrx and reinstalled all the XORG and MESA packages... and now /etx/X11/xorg.conf is ignored...

xorg.conf is empty (size = 0b), but KDE still runs... still no hardware 3D...

OMG, how can I make open source drivers work

This is the problem:

Code:
[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
What is the output of 'lsmod | grep drm' and 'dmesg | grep drm'?

How about the output of 'modprobe radeon' (either as root or with sudo).
