Different video drivers are loaded for root and non-root users
 
Hi everyone,

I just recently installed ATI Radeon driver "fglrx" for 3D acceleration. I configured xorg.conf to use it. The problem is I found out that it only loads up if I log on as root first. If machine boots up and I log on as a regular user right away, the old driver "mesa" loads up (so no 3D). In order for fglrx to load up, i have to log on as root. Doesn't have to do anything. Just log on then off. From then on, fglrx is active and all users can have 3D. I do have this section in xorg.conf to enable permission for all users:

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

What can be the problem?

Thanks.

you could take a look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if there is some fall back for anything
