The ATI drivers are confliciting with the mesa drivers. ATI has its own libGL so type

rpm -e --nodeps XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-2
rpm -Uhv .rpm
rpm -i /home/matthew/fglrx-glcc-4.2.0-2.5.1.i586.rpm

The "--nodeps" option is needed cuz stuff is probably depending on this driver. The ATI driver will reslove these dependancies.

Also check for a newer version, (the 4.2.0, there might be a 4.3.0 version).
