amd catalyst 13.12 - libGL error failed to load driver swrast


hey guys
i have a radeon 6970 graphics card
slackware 14.1-x86_64. Kernel 3.10.17. With multilib
installed amd-catalyst-13.11-betaV9.95-linux-x86.x86_64 from AMD site
did it by creating slackware package (called fglrx-13.25.18-x86_64-1.tgz)

root@darkstar:~# LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
server glx vendor string: ATI
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_OML_swap_method,
GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_pbuffer,
GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_SGI_make_current_read,
GLX_SGI_swap_control
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
client glx version string: 1.4

I don't understand why the fallback driver swrast, direct rendering says no, but it does appear to be working because on the stock radeon driver i would get
glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.336 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.953 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.952 FPS

where now i get
LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxgears
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
37484 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7493.317 FPS
38280 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7653.620 FPS
38260 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7649.553 FPS
37413 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7482.597 FPS

root@darkstar:~# locate swrast
/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.la
/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.la
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so

and here is my Xorg.0.log
http://pastebin.com/KyphWmVH

not sure what to do at this point, i uninstalled and then tried rebuilding and reinstalling,
same end result.
