ati driver issues Ubuntu
 
I am using Ubuntu 7.04 with an ATI Radeon 9550 256MB graphics card and having installed the driver from the ati website and I am still not getting direct rendering to work or a high frame rate to come up. I was wondering how I could get this working properly. I also get this error when running glxinfo:
ERROR: DDX driver fingerprint mismatch: got 0xB280C1BB, but expected 0x3EFCAB91
libGL error: InitDriver failed

Anybody know a solution?

Output form glxgears
854 frames in 5.5 seconds = 156.436 FPS
791 frames in 5.4 seconds = 145.388 FPS
791 frames in 5.3 seconds = 148.699 FPS
791 frames in 5.5 seconds = 143.250 FPS
791 frames in 5.5 seconds = 144.933 FPS
791 frames in 5.3 seconds = 148.043 FPS

glxinfo output

ATI has pretty poor driver support for it's hardware in Linux.

I do recommend dowloading a package called Envy, which is Ubuntu only. It auto downloads, installs, and configures both Nvidia and ATI drivers, and was the only was I could get my Nvidia 7600GS running in Kubuntu.
